In the U.S. or U.S. Territories

You can schedule an appointment with any TRICARE-authorized provider but finding a Medicare participating provider is your best option. You will need your Medicare card and uniformed services ID card when you go to your appointment.

After your appointment:

  • Your provider files the claim with Medicare.
  • Medicare pays the provider and sends the remaining amount electronically to TRICARE.
  • TRICARE pays the remaining amount to the provider; you pay nothing out-of-pocket.
  • You receive an explanation of benefits from Medicare and TRICARE.
