TRICARE Prime Overseas

TRICARE Prime Overseas is a managed care option in overseas areas near military hospitals and clinics. 

Who Can Participate?

Retirees and their families can't enroll in TRICARE Prime Overseas

How it Works

  • You'll get most care from your assigned primary care manager (PCM) at a military hospital or clinic. 
  • Your PCM refers you to a specialist for care he or she can't provide and works with International SOS for authorization, when needed.

What You Pay

  • No enrollment fees
  • No copayments for any type of care as long as care is received from your PCM or with a referral.
  • Care received without a referral is subject to point-of-service fees

Is TRICARE Prime Overseas Right for You?

TRICARE Prime Overseas is only available to active duty service members (including activated Guard/Reserve members) and command sponsored family members. 

How to Enroll—2 Options

Once you have enrolled you can download a TRICARE wallet card to take to your appointments but you must also show your military ID as proof of coverage.
