We know that finding the right health care is important, especially in special circumstances such as emergency or during recent move. Here, you’ll find information and options about the services you have regarding healthcare.
The Naval Hospital Okinawa, with its main facility at Camp Foster, provides primary and family care through a number of branch clinics on Camp S.D. Butler. It is very important to ensure that your family is cleared medically before coming to Okinawa. An overview about the Overseas Suitability Screening process and the required paperwork can be found at the U.S. Naval Hospital Okinawa Medical Overseas Screening webpage. Once you arrive in Okinawa, you will need to re-enroll your family members into TRICARE Pacific. To enroll, bring a copy of orders and area clearance/dependent entry approval to the Newcomers Orientation or stop by the TRICARE service center at the USNH Okinawa.
The 3d Dental Battalion/U.S. Naval Dental Center Okinawa provides comprehensive dental treatment to active-duty personnel, family members and all eligible beneficiaries. Our mission is active-duty operational and dental readiness. All personnel with a current Department of Defense identification card who meet Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System eligibility may be seen for dental care. Active-duty personnel are the priority of the 3d Dental BN; family members are seen on a space-available basis.
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.
For on-base emergencies, call 911 and for off-base emergencies call 098-911-1911.
