A. If medical care can be administered at Mike O’Callaghan Federal Medical Center, then you must come here for your care if you are in Tricare Prime or are an active-duty service member. You have two option available to you.
Option 1: dis-enroll from Tricare Prime and utilize Tricare Standard:
Option 2: Utilize Point of Service — which entails a $300 deductible and 50 percent of the balance — which does not go towards your catastrophic cap.
**Highly recommended that you discuss you options with and Health Benefits Adviser.
**Another reason you would have to come back to the Military Treatment Facility would be if you have been referred to a civilian specialist and you want to continue your care with them, your primary care manager would have to write a new referral if the original one is expired.
This keeps your PCM informed and able to help manage your care.
