Ides referral timeline

Hey guys posted this in another thread but my pcm told me he is started my meb. So he put in a referral on Mar 25 19 for Major depressive disorder and anxiety. I see on tricare that it was put in on the 25 Mar and ends 26 Apr. However, nobody from Ides has called me. When i checked the tricare portal the status for the referral says "under MTF review." Does anyone have any experience to why it takes so long? Should i be concerned? Thank you.

It has to be approved at the division level for a Permanent (3) profile that would initiate your MEB. It should not take that long, though. No need to be concerned, but I would contact your PCM and ask him to check on it for you.
