Services that Don't Require Referrals

You can get the following services from a TRICARE network provider without a PCM referral.

  • Preventive services
  • First eight outpatient mental health care visits per fiscal year (October 1 - September 30)

If you get care from a non-network provider without a referral from your PCM, you're using the point-of service-option, resulting in higher out-of-pocket costs.
