FALLS CHURCH, Virginia – The Defense Health Agency (DHA) today announced that a Primary Care Manager (PCM) Referral Waiver is in place for all TRICARE Prime Overseas and TRICARE Prime Remote Overseas enrolled beneficiaries seeking/receiving care in Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands due to the impacts of Typhoon Mawar.

To ensure that Active Duty Service Members (ADSMs) and command-sponsored Active Duty Family Members (ADFMs) continue to have access to health care services in these locations, a PCM referral will NOT be required from the beneficiary’s enrolled Military Treatment Facility (MTF) or TRICARE Overseas Program (TOP) Network Providers for medically necessary care.

This PCM Referral Waiver will remain in place until it has been determined that it is no longer necessary.

Impacted beneficiaries should contact the TOP Regional Call Center directly to coordinate health care needs. International SOS is available to assist 24/7/365.

When contacting the TOP Regional Call Center, listen carefully to the prompts for the option that best serves you.

Please use the phone numbers below if dialing from Guam or the Northern Mariana Islands directly:
