Prenatal care on base

My husband is on the chopping block for cuts being made in his shop due to an alcohol incident he had over a year ago. I didn't even know him when it happened and it's still biting him on the ass.

Anyway I am almost 14 weeks pregnant and being seen on base. If he does end up getting out, will I be able to still go to the doctor for the remainder of my pregnancy or how will that work?

If he gets out it will be well into October which will put me at 30+ weeks and I don't think I'll be able to find an OB that will actually take me that late into the game! I'm a little freaking out about this.

Also should I just try to get an off-base referral right now and switch doctors while I can? What even goes into getting a referral? My dh says it is a pain to try to do...don't know if everyone has the same experience as him.

After he is out, I'm pretty sure you will not be able to be seen on base.  You won't have Tricare anymore.  When will you find out if he is getting the boot?  Will you even stay in that area?

Tomorrow, and yeah we will stay here. I am from here.

If he went to the guard or the reserves we would still have tricare I just don't know how much it will cost that way.

If you get chaptered out, I don't think you can go Guard or Reserves.

There are some technicalities for voluntary vs involuntary separation. Maybe call Tricare directly?

We got it figured out. We will have tricare for 180 days after separation.
