You will most likely be required to pay up front and file a claim for reimbursement with TRICARE Overseas claims. If you are a family member enrolled in TRICARE Prime in the States and you need medical care (not emergency care) outside of your military treatment facility, you must call your stateside regional office for care authorization. You will then pay for the medical care up front and file a claim for reimbursement with your TRICARE regional office. TRICARE information for all regions is available online.
