Tricare Prime Remote

TRICARE Prime Remote (TPR) is a managed care option available in remote areas in the United States. By law, you can only use TPR if both your sponsor's home and work addresses are more than 50 miles (or one hour's drive time) from a military hospital or clinic.

CRDAMC Area of Responsibility:

The Carl R. Darnall Medical Center (CRDAMC) provides primary care to Active-Duty Service Members assigned to Fort Cavazos and Soldiers in the local area in transient status (Leave, TDY, etc) within CRDAMC’s Area of Responsibility.  Care extends to Tricare Prime Remote (TPR) Soldiers requiring specific assistance with military centric care and documentation that cannot be performed by their network civilian Primary Care Manager (PCM) such as physical examinations and physical profiles.

Soldier Responsibilities

TPR SMs must submit a profile packet before requesting services. A separate profile packet is required for each condition, and each packet must contain sufficient supporting medical documentation for the corresponding diagnosis. Additionally, the packet must be signed by the civilian medical provider rendering care. A Case Manager will organize a profile packet for provider review, and a decision will be made. The Case Manager may also schedule a face-to-face or virtual care appointment at the provider’s discretion. You can reach the Case Manager by email at:, but please wait 48-72 hours before calling. Incorrect, incomplete, or unsigned profile packets will cause delays in care.
