My husband and I are planning to purchase a unit at On Top of The World Adult Community. Our biggest consideration is our medical insurance due to some medical issues. My husband is a military retiree using the Tricare Prime as our medical insurance. I am interested to know if there are any retirees who are using similar insurance and how are the medical facilities and Specialists in the area. Based on our research, application for Tricare Prime is not always approved if more than 100 miles from a military base. I will appreciate inputs/comments from anyone on similar situation. Thanks!

We too are thinking of moving to the Ocala area and have the same question, is Tricare Prime or Tricare For Life (TFL) usually accepted by medical offices and facilities?

I can't speak for having TriCare as primary, as we have BC/BS Federal as primary and TriCare for life as secondary, but I have not had a doctor, specialist, nor hospital refuse to accept and bill TriCare. Biggest PIA so far has been changing Rx from CVS to Publix, as CVS is no longer taking TriCare and my local Walgreens is a no-go.

Not sure about the 100 mile limitation and depending on who's counting, OTOW is within 100 miles of MacDill. We also have an excellent VA outpatient facility here in Ocala, along with a separate ear and eye facility that is also excellent and both are convenient to OTOW. We also have the massive medical facility nearby in Gainesville.
