    Does anyone have experience using Tricare Prime as their insurance provider for TKR?

    I had Tricare Prime and realized what a pain it is. I knew I didn't want to constantly have to "fight" for everything so I switched to Tricare Select. My husband is active duty and the deductible is $1000.00 but it is so nice to not have to be on the phone all the time going back and forth between Tricare and a doctors office. I don't have to wait for referrals to come through. Good luck with your surgery!

    @cvg,
    Thanks! So far we have not had any hiccups! My OS is retired Army, so his office seems to be pretty well versed in dealing with Tricare Prime. We have a decent amount of Tricare Prime docs in the DFW area, so it hasn't been too bad!

    Hope you are recovering well!
