I have been reflecting lately on the five years that have passed since I separated from the Air Force. Besides working at the Center for Deployment Psychology, one source of pride has been my continued work with Service members and their families by being a TRICARE provider. I am a Tricare Standard Certified Provider and have had the opportunity to work with some amazing people over the years. In the coming months we will have more blog entries about being a TRICARE provider and how TRICARE works including interviews with TRICARE officials and providers.
