What is Emergency Care?

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.
