Private Doctor for Exam?


Dec 20, 2018
Hi all
Concorde has me assigned to a doctor and optometrist that are both over an hour away in opposite directions. With our insurance, a regular doctor's appointment is incredibly cheap, and my mother doesn't want me to miss a full day or two days of school for the appointments. I have requested a change through DODMETS, but I was wondering if I would be allowed to just go to my regular doctor and optometrist if I paid for it myself, since they know me well and would be able to understand all their previous diagnoses. Is this allowed or does it have to be a government contracted practice?
They don’t want your personal doctor, who might have a personal relationship with you. And might report things in a way to help you ...

Schedule them on different days.
