Services that Don't Require Referrals
You can get the following services from a TRICARE network provider without a PCM referral.
- Preventive services
- First eight outpatient mental health care visits per fiscal year (October 1 - September 30)
If you get care from a non-network provider without a referral from your PCM, you're using the point-of service-option, resulting in higher out-of-pocket costs.
