Getting Care
Schedule an appointment with any TRICARE-authorized provider, network or
non-network. You will never need a referral for any type of care (routine,
urgent or specialty) but you may need to have prior authorization from your
regional contractor for some types of services.

  . If you visit a non-network provider, you'll pay more out of pocket (5%) and
may have to file your own health care claims. 

  . If you visit a network provider, you'll pay less out of pocket and the
provider will file health care claims on your behalf. 

Out-of-Pocket Costs
You are required to pay the monthly premiums and cost shares if you decide to
enroll in TRICARE Reserve Select. >>Learn More at

Is TRICARE Reserve Select Right for You?
TRICARE Reserve Select is a great option for you and your family if you are:

  . a member of the Selected Reserves of the Ready Reserve, 

  . not on active duty orders or covered by the Transitional Assistance
Management Program, and 

  . not eligible for or enrolled in the FEHB. 

The plan provides comprehensive health care coverage when you're not activated
and covered by active duty TRICARE benefits. And, because you can see any
provider, you don't have to change providers if you already have one.
