Health care services provided by the Defense Department are available to you and your family at your installation. 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.
Creech Air Force Base has a medical clinic, dental and pharmacy services for active duty personnel. For more information, call 702-404-1142. More acute needs, as well as family member care, is the mission of the Mike O'Callaghan Federal Medical Center at Nellis AFB. Their appointment line is 702-653-2273.
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.
Prime options in the United States
If you live in a Prime Service Area, then TRICARE Prime is an option for you. A Prime Service Area is usually within a 40-mile radius of a military clinic or hospital. With Prime, you have a primary care manager, who may be a military or civilian doctor or a team of doctors, who manages your health care needs.
Some active-duty family members may enroll in the U.S. Family Health Plan. The USFHP offers a TRICARE Prime-like option in six areas of the United States. You'll get all care, including prescription drug coverage, from an in-network provider. With the USFHP, you can't get care at military hospitals or clinics or from TRICARE network providers (emergency exceptions). You have to work with USFHP when you get care overseas. Visit the U.S. Family Health Plan page for more information.
If you don't live in a Prime Service Area, TRICARE Prime Remote is your other option. Eligible family members have to live with their active-duty sponsor (with some exceptions) to enroll in TRICARE Prime Remote. In most cases, your primary care manager is a network provider. If there's no local in-network provider, you can choose any TRICARE-authorized provider to act as your PCM.
Prime options overseas, including U.S. territories
In overseas locations, you have two options for care:
Note: Active-duty service members must enroll in a TRICARE Prime option.
When you know you're going to move, call your current TRICARE stateside overseas contractor. Find out if your new location is in a new region and talk about your TRICARE options.
Transferring your TRICARE Prime/Prime Remote coverage
When you move, your Prime options may change. You have to transfer your enrollment if you move to a different region. Some family members may have to disenroll and use TRICARE Standard. Options may vary for each family member. Remember to enroll in a Prime option overseas; family members must be command-sponsored.
If you move within your current region, you still need to find out if your Prime option changes. You may only need to get a new PCM. Again, call your current TRICARE regional or USFHP contractor to talk about your move and your TRICARE options. Follow these steps to transfer your enrollment by phone:
Note: Don't disenroll from Prime before you move.
Other ways to transfer your enrollment include:
To learn more, visit the TRICARE Moving page.
TRICARE Standard and Extra are options for active-duty family members. You don't have to enroll: Coverage is automatic as long as you show as TRICARE eligible in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System. With TRICARE Standard or TRICARE Extra, you can see any TRICARE-authorized provider, in network or out of network. You pay a deductible and cost shares.
If you're a family member and don't want to enroll in the TRICARE Overseas Program Prime, or can't enroll because you're not command sponsored, you have TRICARE Overseas Program Standard. You can see any civilian provider (except in the Philippines).
If you want or have to use TRICARE Standard when you move, call the new regional contractor to disenroll from TRICARE Prime when you get to your new location.
If you’re already using TRICARE Standard and TRICARE Extra:
If you're in a new region, the claims’ address changes. Check the TRICARE Filing Claims page for your new mailing address.
TRICARE For Life is for those who have Medicare and TRICARE. You don't have to enroll; coverage is automatic as long as you show in Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System as TRICARE-eligible and have Medicare Part A and Part B, if needed. When you go to a Medicare doctor, show both your Medicare and uniformed service identification cards. Your provider files your claims with Medicare. Medicare pays first, then sends the claim to the TRICARE For Life claims processor. TRICARE then pays second for TRICARE-covered services.
If you're an active-duty family member, you don't need to have Medicare Part B to keep your TRICARE benefits, but you must have Part B to keep TRICARE once your sponsor retires.
When you move, update your personal information in DEERS as soon as possible. To find a new provider:
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.
