TRICARE Global Remote Overseas (TGRO) is a TRICARE Prime option offered in designated remote overseas locations for active duty service members and their families. TRICARE has partnered with International SOS to identify the best local providers and facilities and develop a network of licensed, qualified physicians in remote overseas areas. The TGRO contractor's careful selection of providers is the first step in ensuring quality care.

Only physicians who are licensed and who have graduated from an accredited medical school are included in the core network. To access a list of TGRO providers please visit the TGRO Provider Directory. The TGRO network is updated daily.
Key features of TGRO include:

  • Enrollment is required, but there are no enrollment fees.
  • Fewer out-of-pocket costs than TRICARE Standard Overseas.
  • You receive most care from your primary care manager (PCM).
  • Your PCM or TGRO Call Center refers you to specialists when necessary and will tell you when you need to go to another city, country or the U.S. for quality care.
  • No claims to file (in most cases).

In general, TGRO is available to the following beneficiaries:

  • Permanently-assigned active duty service members living in designated remote locations.
  • Command-sponsored active duty family members living with their active duty sponsors in designated remote locations
  • Activated National Guard and Reserve members living in designated remote locations when their orders are for more than 30 consecutive days.
  • Command-sponsored family members of activated National Guard and Reserve living with their sponsors in designated remote locations

To learn more about how TGRO works for you, visit the TRICARE "My Benefit" website, enter your profile and select "TRICARE Global Remote Overseas" as your health plan.
