Ask the Doc

99th Medical Group

doctor
Q. My mother is my dependent. Can she see a military doctor?

A. Once a dependent parent/in-law is enrolled into Tricare Plus, they will be assigned a Primary Care Manager here at the Military Treatment Facility, MTF. They will be able to utilize any of the services that can be provided to them at this facility. Tricare Plus only covers care within the MTF’s. There is no coverage if they are referred or just go off base for care.

Important Information: Mike O’Callaghan Federal Medical Center’s phone tree has changed. Please listen carefully. For example; patient needing to contact Referral Management should call 702-653-2273 press Option 2 then press Option 1 or 21 and that will get them directly to Referral Management at the front desk. The old option 141 will take you to Mental Health front desk.
