Documenting Eligibility and Getting Care
When your unit approves your LOD/NOE determination:
- File it with your local military hospital or clinic or with the Reserve and Service Member Support Office, (R&SMSO), Great Lakes.
- Send a copy to any providers who cared for your LOD/NOE injury or illness so they can file it with your claim.
If you're able to get care from a military hospital or clinic, that facility will manage your LOD care. Make sure your service-issued LOD/NOE determination on file there.
If you’re not able to get care from a military hospital or clinic, R&SMSO works with your unit medical representative to coordinate your care with a TRICARE-authorized provider.
