Are you planning to travel soon? Your rules for getting care depend on your TRICARE plan and travel destination. If you are using Prime and have an emergency, go to the nearest emergency room. Standard and Extra beneficiaries can visit any TRICARE-authorized provider for care, whether stateside or overseas. If you need dental care and are enrolled in the TRICARE Dental Program, you can visit any licensed dentist for treatment. TRICARE Retiree Dental Program enrollees can call 1-215-942-8226 for dental emergencies. If you are traveling stateside and do not know what to do, call the TRICARE Nurse Advice Line at 1-800-TRICARE, Option 1. Information about all your TRICARE benefits is on the TRICARE website.
