Just curious how many folks who are eligible (ie... military retirees), living outside an area where there is a Tricare Prime network set up are using Tricare Standard as their primary Health Care Insurance? Do you find it timely? How much out of pocket are you routinely stuck with? Do you find a lot of providers not interested in dealing with Tricare? I am looking at an enormous increase in Health care costs this year as my company has dropped the option that I (and most of my fellow employees) were using and are offering a plan with much higher deductibles and out of pocket expenses. I might just throw the whole thing over and finally use Tricare but a couple of friends who are physicians have warned me that their experiences with Tricare Standard have left them pretty unhappy. So- thoughts?? There are pretty much no MTFs or Tricare Clinics in Massachusetts that I know of so Prime is no option.
