Prime Travel Entitlement
If you or your dependents are required to travel to receive medical treatment you may be eligible for TRICARE authorized reimbursement of reasonable travel expenses.
The Prime Travel entitlement is for travel expenses incurred by non-active duty TRICARE Prime members when they are required to travel more then 100 miles from their Primary Care Manager's (PCM) office for medically necessary specialty care.
Costs (Lodging, meals, per diem)
The Prime Travel entitlement allows beneficiaries to be reimbursed for certain travel costs and other associated expenses like lodging and meals. Actual expenses are reimbursed up to the government rate. If beneficiaries have questions regarding government/per diem rates, the following web link provides this information.
