If you have been evacuated from certain counties in Florida, you may not have to get a referral from your primary care manager to see a Tricare authorized provider. This is also known as a blanket referral waiver. This applies to anyone in a Tricare Prime plan in the following counties: Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gulf, Jackson, Liberty, and Washington Counties until January 31, 2019. To obtain care, (1) Find a Tricare-authorized provider in the area where you are evacuated to schedule an appointment. and (2) contact the military hospital or clinic by phone to ensure it is open before you travel to the facility.
