TRICARE Prime Remote Overseas

TRICARE Prime Remote Overseas is a managed care option in designated remote overseas locations:

TRICARE Prime Remote Overseas is minimum essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

Who Can Participate?

The following beneficiaries may enroll in TRICARE Prime Remote Overseas:

  • Active duty service members
  • Command-sponsored active duty family members
  • Activated National Guard/Reserve members
  • Command-sponsored family members of activated National Guard/Reserve members

How it Works

You get most care from an assigned primary care manager (PCM). Your PCM rerfers you to specialists 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

Overseas Point of Contact Program

When you enroll in TRICARE Prime Remote Overseas, you can call an overseas point of contact (POC) for help. They can help you:

  • Enroll in a TRICARE plan overseas
  • Schedule appointments at overseas network facilities
  • File your medical and dental claims
  • Answer questions about coverage options and benefits—including complex issues
  • Navigate TRICARE’s electronic self-service options

To locate your POC, contact your TRICARE Area Office.
