When you move, TRICARE moves with you. No matter where you go in the world, TRICARE is there before, during and when you get to your next duty station.
There are steps you need to take to make sure changes to your TRICARE coverage go smoothly. Understand that when you move, you may have to use a different TRICARE option. Visit TRICARE Moving to learn more.
Before you move, you should take care of any routine medical needs, including immunizations, and fill your prescriptions so you have enough while traveling. If you need care during your move, visit TRICARE Getting Care When Traveling to learn what to do.
Filling prescriptions while traveling
You should refill prescriptions before traveling. But if you run out of a prescription drug while traveling, visit TRICARE Filling Prescriptions When Traveling.
Getting dental care while traveling
Getting dental care while traveling depends on your location and whether you are a service member or family member.
With permanent change of station orders, ask for a copy of your medical and dental records from your military treatment facility and the dental treatment facility. Do this at least one month before your PCS date. The MTF should also transfer a copy of your record and any family records to your new duty station or you may be able to hand carry them to your new duty station.
If you want someone else to be able to get medical or dental information on you or your family while you are moving, you need to complete a DD Form 2870, "Authorization for Disclosure of Medical or Dental Information."
For more information on getting copies of medical records, visit TRICARE Request Copies of Medical Records.
The Camp Lejeune Naval Medical Center is one of the newest military hospitals in the South and boasts a 117-bed capacity expandable to a 236-bed capacity. It is staffed with most major medical specialties; however, services available to eligible beneficiaries may vary depending on current resources.
If you are on leave and an emergency occurs, contact your primary care manager within 24-hours of receiving emergency care. If you are unable to do so, have a family member or friend contact your base medical care facility. Any bill you may obtain while out of the area may be submitted to TRICARE via your BAS/RAS/clinic.
The hospital is a compact unit, consisting of a four-story clinical and support building. In 1983, the bed capacity was 205 and expandable to 236. The Surgical Suite consisted of five operating rooms, and the Obstetrical Suite had five labor rooms and three delivery rooms. In January 2005, Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune became the primary casualty receiving facility when II Marine Expeditionary Force became the predominant force in the theater in continuing Operation Iraqi Freedom, receiving about 30 casualties of war each month. Currently, the medical center has deployed staff in various locations.
All members and their dependents have access to medical benefits provided they have identification cards and are enrolled in TRICARE Prime. Services are available to active duty and their family members, retirees and their family members or survivors. Certain reserve component members and their family members are also included. Enrollment capacity varies and space availability is subject to change.
