TriCare Standard (Non CS Insurance while overseas)

Post  LILMaMa on Sun Mar 07, 2010 6:15 pm

TRICARE Standard Overseas provides comprehensive coverage to active duty family members, retired service members and their families and all others who do not or cannot enroll in TRICARE Prime Overseas. TRICARE Extra is not available in overseas locations. Enrollment is not required, coverage is automatic as long as your information is current in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System.

Plan Overview
When using TRICARE Standard Overseas, you'll receive care from host-nation providers. You may seek care at a military treatment facility on a space-available basis only. You do not need a referral for any type of care but some services may require prior authorization. You may have to pay the provider in full when you receive care and file a claim with TRICARE for reimbursement.

Some of the TRICARE Area Offices (TAO) have established preferred provider lists. You should use providers from these lists if they are available to you. Contact your TAO for more information. Note: In the Philippines, you must select a provider from the Philippines Certified Provider list.

Is TRICARE Standard Overseas Right for You?
TRICARE Standard Overseas may be your only option when you live overseas. If you're an active duty family member, you'll save money and have priority for care if you enroll in either TRICARE Prime Overseas or TRICARE Global Remote Overseas. Be sure to get command-sponsored so you have the option.
