You will never need a referral for any type of care (routine, urgent or specialty) but you may need to have prior authorization from your regional contractor for some types of services.
Costs vary based on the sponsor's military status. After you've met an annual deductible, you're responsible to pay a cost share (or percentage). >>Learn More
Remember, active duty service members (including activated National Guard/Reserve members) may not use TRICARE Standard and Extra. TRICARE Standard and Extra may be the right choice for you if you have a provider who is not in the TRICARE network and you don't want to change providers. Or, if you live in an area where TRICARE Prime is not available, TRICARE Standard and Extra may be your only option.
