Abstract : In 1997 TRICARE, Region I, the National Capital Area, will begin enrolling beneficiaries into TRICARE Prime. Beneficiaries will be assigned to 'Primary Care Managers', at the primary care sites, based on the zip code of their residence. This enrollment procedure may have significant impact on the numbers and type of patients needed to support Pediatric GME and current staffing. Based on FY-94 workload in the Pediatric Acute Care Clinic, less than 50 percent of NNMC's current pediatric outpatient workload resides in the TRICARE catchment area.
