As TRICARE beneficiaries increasingly access electronic, Internet, and toll-free customer service features, the need for walk-in locations has lessened. As a result, walk-in customer service at TRICARE Service Centers (TSCs) located within the 50 United States will no longer be provided as of April 1.
Due to the unique needs of overseas beneficiaries, TSCs outside of the United States will continue to offer walk-in service. To view TSC change information and sign up for e-mail updates, visit www.tricare.mil/tsc.
