Are you enrolled in TRICARE Pacific Prime and planning a trip this summer? Unexpected emergencies may arise and it is important to be prepared. In the event of illness or the need of emergency care while traveling, all members are covered for this care and are encouraged to visit the nearest Military Treatment Facility (MTF) whenever possible. Your membership will allow for priority access to available MTF appointments if needed.

Pacific Prime members do not need to obtain pre-authorization for urgent or emergency care, except for some mental health needs. To obtain mental health pre-authorization, call Choice Behavioral Partnership at 1-800-700-8646.

Active duty service members must follow their service directives to obtain care from civilian healthcare providers and to submit claims for payment. Remember, your first should be the nearest MTF. If that is not feasible, civilian medical care may be obtained. In this event, Navy and Marine Corps active duty members should call 1-800-876-1131, Army members should call 1-800-531-1114 ext. 7129, and Air Force members should call DSN 297-5708 or 202-767-5082 during normal working hours.

Family members must identify themselves as a TRICARE Pacific Prime member and use their APO/FPO addresses on all claim forms and mail these completed forms to: Wisconsin Physician Services, Foreign Claims, P.O. Box 7985, Madison, WI 53707-7985. Family members will pay a nominal co-payment, based on the rank of their sponsor, for services of a civilian healthcare provider. Call the TRICARE Pacific Service Center at 1-888-777-8343 for more information on this situation.

The US Naval Hospital has compiled a list of telephone numbers which may be beneficial to all enrollees. Call 643-7539 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., weekdays, for more information or to enroll in TRICARE Pacific Prime.
