    First you need to have your Tricare set up for TriWest I think you need to go into Balboa and do it. From there you choose either a TOC ( tricare outpatient clinic) or a civilian doc. Be aware you and your daughter may not be in the same TOC. For emergencies I've gone to a civilian hospital and they've covered it, granted we lived like 20 miles from Balboa. Good luck!

    yes if you go get tricare set up they will give you a huge list of civilian drs and you choose from the list. or you can choose a military Dr. but I understand they are very full out here. My husband set up all the health care for us and he did not have to go to Balboa to do it.

    by the time you get seen, i'm sure you'd have a + preggo test unless they can see you right away

    My kids see Dr. Jerrard at the NTC clinic. I see whoever. I recommend Chistine Cortez (sp) as a Midwife.
