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.
Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton is located near the main gate.

Upon arrival at Camp Pendleton, families should bring their medical records to the Outpatient Records desk located just inside the hospital entrance closest to the outpatient parking lot. This allows entry into the outpatient system and will reduce waiting times during first medical appointments.
Most hospital clinics operate on an appointment basis. Appointments are available by calling the clinic directly or with a health care provider's referral. The primary care (family medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics clinic) appointment system is centralized and can be reached at 760-725-4327.
All patients are required to show proof of eligibility and must be listed in the Defense Enrollment and Eligibility Reporting System. A valid identification card alone will not guarantee care in non-emergency situations.
