If you need emergency assistance, you can expect to get help from your installation, your branch of service resources. There are programs to support you in a variety of situations, including victim assistance, emergencies en route and service-specific relief societies. Below, you’ll find types of assistance, contact information, and detailed procedures and guidance to help you through any tough circumstances that you or your family may face.
For military and family members, ensure that TRICARE agrees with your "emergency" assessment and get authorization for treatment whenever possible. For medical care in-route, if you are active duty you should use DOD facilities (any branch of service), if possible, or the Veterans Administration Facility. If none of the above is available, use civilian facilities. Take the bill to your next base and process it at your gaining medical facility. Family members should try to use DOD medical facilities for emergency medical care in-route. Civilian care will be cost-shared under TRICARE. Emergency care will not require a non-availability statement, but non-emergency care may require one. Contact your TRICARE provider to inform them of your circumstances. If you are not covered by TRICARE, contact your current medical insurance for approvals and guidance.
