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 active duty or are enrolled in Tricare Prime. You have two options available to you.
Option 1: Disenroll 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 your options with a 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.
