Medical Care After Duty Hours
TRICARE Nurse Advice Line: If you require medical advice about a non emergent condition, you may call the TRICARE Nurse Advice line at 800-874-2273. The TRICARE Nurse can initiate an "Urgent Care" referral. The nurse will direct you to the appropriate level of care.
In case of an emergency: In case of an emergency please go to the nearest Emergency Room or call 911. Please be advised that you are responsible for the cost of the visit if seen for other than an emergency reason, such as a toothache. TRICARE defines an emergency as a medical, maternity, or psychiatric condition that would lead a "prudent layperson" to believe that a serious medical condition exists, or the absence of immediate medical attention would result in a threat to life, limb, or eyesight .
Be sure to call or follow up with your Primary Care Manager on the next working day.
