  • Tricare Ins cards? Ours have always been our Military ID cards. Do you have those? What Tricare are you using? Prime or Standard?
    I agree with who told you to go to Tricare's website, find your region, and call them. They should be able to give you directions.
    Good luck!

  • you need to go to the tricare building on base its behind the bowling ally they will be able to tell you if your standard or prime then get it changed to prime and they will give you the number to make apts all the apts are on base at the hospital your id card is your insurance card the only time you get a ins card is for dental and you have to pay extra for that your card wont say you have insurance thats just a given
