TMH is approved by TRICARE to provide mental health services all over Japan. If you are looking for counseling or psychological evaluation in Okinawa, the Tokyo area, or via telehealth then we can help. We offer services for TRICARE members with Prime, Select and Plus policies.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer any psychiatry or medical services. For these, please refer to your Military Treatment Facility (MTF).
We are proud to be able to provide services for US service personnel and their families through TRICARE Prime. As an approved provider with TRICARE, direct billing means that once referred by your base medical treatment facility (MTF), we can offer treatment and support for you and your family, without you having to cover the cost of treatment or having to submit claims for services retrospectively. If you or your family would benefit from a comprehensive psychological evaluation or psychological therapy or counseling, please speak to your MTF regarding a referral to our offices in Tokyo or in Okinawa, or for a referral for telehealth services. Currently full psychological evaluations arw only available at our Tokyo office. Once the referral has been received from your MTF and TRICARE, our TRICARE Prime team will contact you via email.
If you or your family would benefit from a comprehensive psychological evaluation or psychological therapy or counseling, in person or online, in Tokyo or in Okinawa, get in touch with us. The process flow outlines the steps towards obtaining mental health services from us.
