    Pediatrician..

    Advertisements
    I was talking to a friend last night and she just had a baby and told me that she is seeing an outside provider for her baby and she is not paying any co pays or anything...Is that true? Dh and I are both Prime.....I thought for our son to see an outside provider we would have to switch him to standard and have to pay co pays and all of that? I would really like to get him a regular dr rather than a base one if it wont cost extra but wanted to know how to go about getting it set up if anyone has done it?

    Just what Donna said. We just did that. We are prime, walked in to a tricare service center, gave them the name of the Dr we wanted and they called it in. Effective immediately. It was so easy. No copays.

    You can look on the internet at docters who are taking tricare prime and you can just call tri care and tell them what docter you want. I just did that with my son.

    DO I have to wait until he is born before I can get it set up or can I start doing it now?lol I Would like to kinda meet with some potentials and not just pick from a name that sounds good.
