Routine: You may receive care from any qualified host nation provider without a referral. It is highly recommended
that you contact the staff of a nearby military treatment facility (MTF) or TRICARE Service Center(TSC) or the
nearest American embassy health unit (TRICARE POC) for assistance in locating a host nation provider.

Specialty: Standard, generally, does not require the beneficiary to seek a referral for specialty care. However some
specialty procedures may require pre-authorization, which is true in the U.S. as well as overseas. Check with your TSC
for detailed information about treatments, services and procedures that may require pre-authorization.

Inpatient/Hospitalization: All beneficiaries who live near an MTF must obtain a non-availability statement (NAS) from
the MTF before receiving inpatient behavioral/mental health care at a host nation hospital.
