  • call tricare to see if the referral has been approved. If so then call the place he referred you to and make your appt.

  • You are supposed to find out what physical therapists are covered by tri care in your area and call to make an appt. More than likely the doctor gave you the name of someone or someplace.

  • my doctor did not give me any names, he only said it would most likely be off post... and then he made it sound like I would be contacted... I guess I'll be calling tricare today to find out what's going on.

  • when you call tricare they can tell you where he referred you too. Sounds like a base doctor so he knows how to handle tricare and mroe then likely referred you to a contracted doctor through tricare.
