TRICARE is waiving the primary care manager (PCM) referral requirement for all beneficiaries evacuated from Turkey. The waiver will last 180 days from March 30-Sept. 30. While evacuated, beneficiaries can contact the military treatment facility (MTF) closest to them to get primary care. If they stay overseas, but are not close to an MTF, they can contact International SOS for help. If they are in the U.S., and not close to an MTF, they should contact the International SOS TOP Regional Call Center or the appropriate regional contractor. If they do not return to the region, they can change their TRICARE enrollment to their new permanent location by contacting the regional contractor for that area.
