Determination of Eligibility Request
TRICARE Prime Remote is available to active duty service members and activated Guard/Reserve members (including those eligible for pre-activation benefits) who live and work in designated remote locations. If you don't live and work in a designated remote location, you may submit a Determination of Eligibility Request if you believe that one or more of the exceptions to the eligibility criteria are met:
- Your unit is in one region, but you live in another region
- You and your unit are in one region, but closest primary care manager is in another region
- Geographic barriers or other unique situations exist (e.g. the drive time to the nearest military hospital or clinic exceeds one hour)
Only the service member or the Unit Commander may request a Determination of Eligibility Request.
If approved, qualified family members may also enroll.
