In April 2016, a waiver of the primary care manager referral requirement was approved for Active Duty Family Members (ADFMs) who were stationed in Turkey and evacuated to other worldwide locations. This waiver ensured that ADFMs enrolled in TRICARE Overseas Prime and Prime Remote Overseas are able to get health care without a referral from their primary care manager. The waiver has been extended until Nov. 30, 2016. ADFMs that were evacuated from Turkey must update their address in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility System (DEERS) and transfer their enrollment to their new location within 60 days to avoid a break in coverage. For more information, visit the TRICARE Prime Overseas webpage or the Prime Remote Overseas webpage.
