How it Works

Schedule an appointment with any TRICARE-authorized providerAn authorized provider is any individual, institution/organization, or supplier that is licensed by a state, accredited by national organization, or meets other standards of the medical community, and is certified to provide benefits under TRICARE. There are two types of TRICARE-authorized providers: Network and Non-Network..

  • If you visit a non-network provider, you're using the Standard option.
  • If you visit a network provider, you're using the Extra option.

Referrals not required, but you may need prior authorization from your regional contractor for some services.

You won't receive a TRICARE wallet card when using TRICARE Standard. All you need is your military ID as proof of coverage.
