***NEW PROCESS***

Using Urgent Care/ER Facilities

To avoid any out of pocket expenses. Please read the instructions below and adhere to them moving forward with your Urgent Care/ER visits:

1. Life, limb, or eyesight--go to the ER, and approval will be almost automatic. YOU must call and notify us the next business/duty day to obtain a retro referral.

2. During clinic hours, patients must contact the SOCOM Clinic to be seen by a provider.

3. After hours, YOU must call the Nurse Advice Line at 1-800-TRICARE (1-800-874-2273) BEFORE going to a Urgent Care/ER. The nurses will be able to:

      a. Give medical advice to help patient care for symptoms, until the Clinic opens

      b. Recommend patient go to Urgent Care/ER

*** This will save YOU money!!!!***

We are here to serve you! If you have any questions, please contact the clinic at 827-9870/9872.
