  • Yup, they will do a blood test and then give you a referral to OB.

  • On post at the hospital/Clinic on Fort Sill. I tried to make an appointment for my PCP to get a pregnancy test. They told me I had to go to OBGYN and do that. Everything at Reynolds is in one building. But different posts might be different.  Or Tricare has changed again.

  • You have to have a referral to go to any specialty clinic, it is just the way it is.

  • Its Tricare. You have to get the referral. Call the PCD line and let them know you just need the referral to see a OB Gyn for pregnancy. Its very simple.

  • I had to see my primary care provider who then referred me to an OB/GYN. If you don't have the referral, then you will be paying out of pocket.
