What is TRICARE Prime Overseas?
TRICARE Prime Overseas is a managed care option for active-duty service members and their command-sponsored family members living together in
non-remote overseas locations. Enrollment is required to participate. Retirees and their families may not enroll in TRICARE Prime Overseas.
When you enroll in TRICARE Prime Overseas, you have an assigned primary care manager at a military treatment facility who provides most of your care. Your PCM will refer you to a specialist for care he or she cannot provide.
Who is eligible for TRICARE Prime Overseas?
Active duty service members, including activated National Guard orReserve members and active duty family members. Family members must be command-sponsored.
Is there any out-of-pocket cost?
There are no enrollment fees and no out-of-pocket costs for any type of care as long as care is received from your PCM or with a referral. Care received
without a referral is subject to point-of-service fees.
How do I enroll?
All you have to do to enroll is submit a TRICARE Prime Overseas Enrollment Application and PCM Change Form once you arrive at your duty location.
Where can I get help with TRICARE?
