What do I do there aren't any explicit instructions that I can find. My dodmerbtricare says that I need to send in paperwork regarding headaches I had in middle school. Do I just call my doctors office and ask for copies? And where do I mail them to? Looking everywhere on the site to figure it out. Do I upload them?
