Please consult on whether your plan is TRICARE Standard or TRICARE Prime.
TRICARE Standard is the TRICARE option that provides the most flexibility to TRICARE-eligible beneficiaries. It is the fee-for-service option that gives beneficiaries the opportunities to see any TRICARE-authorized provider. At this time Auburn University Medical Clinic is a TRICARE-authorized provider. Please be aware that patients will be responsible for deductibles and co-pays.
With TRICARE Prime, most health care will come from a Military Treatment Facility, along with the TRICARE contracted Civilian Medical Providers called Preferred Provider Network. TRICARE Prime members should seek the advice of their Primary Care Manager or Military Treatment Facility before seeking medical attention from Auburn University Medical Clinic. Without a referral or pre-authorization to visit the clinic, a patient with TRICARE Prime will be responsible for the entire visit.
Medical records are strictly confidential. Information will not be released without authorization from you, except by court order. Authorization forms are available at the Medical Clinic. In accordance with Alabama laws, we reserve the right to charge the state recommended fees for copies of records. You can find more information about privacy here.
We are proud of our continual efforts to maintain a high level of quality care delivered in a modern, patient friendly environment. We perform quality studies to ensure we are objectively meeting certain standards. We encourage your feedback every time you use our services. At the end of each visit you will be asked to complete a Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients can also contact Maegan Hamner with further comments. We view your feedback as a testament to our efforts and as an opportunity for improvement.
While the Auburn University Medical Clinic will write excuses for illness, please note you must be seen by a physician in the clinic to be eligible for a class excuse.
