Getting Care

New Patients

If you have not been evaluated or treated at this clinic within the last 12 months, a new referral is required by your Primary Care Manager (PCM) or other authorized provider.
 
Your referral will be reviewed for appropriateness to be appointed at this facility, Fort Carson Orthopedics or with a network provider off-base. If our clinic is selected for care, the Access to Care Line will make three attempts to book your initial evaluation.

If you're not contacted within 3 business days to book your appointment, your referral has likely been deferred off-base. Visit www.TRICARE-west.com to access your network provider referral authorization. If no referral authorization is visible, contact the Access to Care Line or 10th Medical Group Referral Management to determine whether your referral is still in-progress.
 
Additional information on the referral process is available on the Referral Support Page or via the 10 MDG Referral Guide.
