What is Emergency Care?

Emergency care is needed in the case of a medical emergency. Medical emergencies are the sudden and unexpected onset of a medical condition that:

  • Is threatening to life, limb, or eyesight
  • Requires immediate medical treatment or
  • Manifests painful symptoms that requires immediate response to alleviate suffering

TRICARE International SOS (http://www.tricare-overseas.com/) provides 24/7 support for TRICARE overseas beneficiaries, when they need urgent or emergent care or request medical assistance. This includes real-time English translation services provided over the phone. In South Korea, call toll-free 080-591-0880 or direct 65-6338-9277.

What to do in an emergency?

Call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. Some military treatment facility locations offer emergency room services and others do not, so be sure to be familiar with the clinics and services offered at your location.

What is Urgent Care?

Urgent care is defined as care needed for a non-emergency illness or injury. This means that it does not threaten an individual’s life, limbs, or eyesight, or leave them in intolerable pain for an extended duration of time. An individual may also need to seek urgent care in situations where a health condition or injury may become a more serious risk to their health if left untreated. It is recommended that Department of Defense patients seek urgent care at their local MTF locations first if possible. TRICARE’s new Urgent Care Pilot Program covers two urgent care visits per fiscal year, depending on your type of plan and location. Full details can be found here. For more information about Urgent Care and what is covered in your plan, please visit TRICARE.

Important information for military retirees about changes to the TRICARE Retiree Dental Program. The TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP) is ending on Dec. 31, 2018. If you are using the TRDP now and you want dental coverage after the TRDP ends, you can enroll in a FEDVIP plan during open season (Nov. 12 – Dec. 10, 2018). Please visit www.tricare.benefeds.com to learn more about your options. In general, the coverage offered under FEDVIP's nationwide dental plans is comparable to the dental coverage offered under TRDP. With 10 dental carriers to choose from, and some plans offering both high and standard options, FEDVIP offers you the flexibility to select the right coverage for you and your family. We recommend that you review all options available to you before making a decision.
