    So I don't have medical insurance anymore and one of my buddies told me to use tricare. @ $80/month it sounds a lot better than the $400/month I can't affford from a diff healthcare provider.

    Can I use tricare @ local family doctors? If so, what network is tricare linked to? Or do I have to use mil hospitals? I live in new york city and we don't have any active duty facilities, just reserve and guard stations.


    Thx in advance.

    I signed up for tricare select reserve..couldn't do prime or standard...I know their payment is anually, mine is monthly....

    Tricare is beyond confusing, I looked everywhere on their site to make sense of anything...I just can't make head or tail of it

    I signed up because....god forbid I get into an accident, ill be screwed financially. I really should just call these ppl shouldn't I?

    PS kittah <3 u too ;)

    Yeah... Tricare is confusing. Even for us AD. Try calling the 1-800 and talking to someone. I find that the best way to get answers.
