Description of Services

Case Management is recognized as an essential component to optimize services that can enhance clinical and resource efficiency and improve quality of care. CM interventions result in integration, patient care coordination, and continuity of care, thereby enhancing the quality of care. At USNH Naples, CM coordinates complex cases that require a multidisciplinary approach. CM also works with Patient Liaison Representatives to bridge the gap between care provided in the Network and at the MTF.
Case Management services can be initiated through self-referral or your primary care provider.

Traveling Stateside with TRICARE Overseas: 

Getting hurt during vacation or while PCSing is never fun, but getting stuck with the hospital bill just adds salt to the wound. During vacation and PCS season, many people head back to the United States for extended visits or to transition to their next duty station. It’s often thought that routine care can be taken care of while “back home” in America, but that’s not necessarily true. The requirement to receive pre-authorization before seeking non-emergent care has been and continues to be TRICARE policy. It’s important for TRICARE Overseas Program beneficiaries to understand their TRICARE benefit to avoid any unnecessary out-of-pocket expenses.

Routine care and urgent care (i.e., need to be seen within 24 hours) require pre-authorization before treatment is rendered. In both cases, your primary care manager needs contacted for a referral. Obtaining care before getting proper authorization will result in a denied claim and point-of-service charges for the beneficiary.

Generally, routine care is not authorized while a TOP Prime enrollee is outside their Prime Service Area. We recommend that routine care be completed before leaving the Naples area, or upon returning from your trip. Only under unusual circumstances – and on a case-by-case basis – will routine care be considered for authorization stateside. In these situations, care must be coordinated with your medical team well in advance of leaving the area.

If you’re transitioning to your next duty station, you’ll remain enrolled to your current PCM until you enroll with your new PCM at your new duty station., You should contact your PCM for non-emergent care concerns should anything arise during this transition period.

The basic rule of thumb is if routine care can be obtained in the local network where you are enrolled, it should be received in that network – not outside it.

Emergency care does not require a pre-authorization but beware that there are new kinds of “Emergency Centers” popping up in the United States, which may not be covered by TRICARE. Free-standing emergency rooms not affiliated with a hospital may not be TRICARE-authorized. If a provider is not authorized, TRICARE is prohibited from paying the facility fees. This can leave a beneficiary stuck with a big bill. It’s smart to know before you go and check a free-standing ER’s TRICARE status – before care is needed; just call the region’s TRICARE contractor. Beneficiaries seeking care at a free-standing ER need to ask if the facility is affiliated with a hospital-based emergency department. If it’s not, the beneficiary will need to decide about getting care elsewhere or being responsible for the facility charges.

You should always contact the TOP Regional Call Center for guidance when care is required when you are away from your PCM. The number for the Europe Call Center is +44-20-8762-8384, or toll-free stateside at 1-877-678-1207.
