TRICARE Urgent Care Pilot Program Launches May 23rd

Posted on

Maybe I’m just biased since I work in the Emergency Department, but I think that this program could be a game changer in many ways.  As of May 23rd TRICARE beneficiaries will be able to get urgent care twice per fiscal year from a provider other than their PCM without a referral from their PCM.  I’m sure it will change things for all primary care providers and possibly specialists as well because their referral sources may change.  Here are a couple of links to check out:
