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 TRICARE Active-Duty Family Member Dental Plan is administered by United Concordia in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. It is a voluntary, comprehensive dental plan available to family members of active-duty uniformed services personnel. When the active-duty member sponsor enrolls family members in the FMDP, a monthly premium is paid through payroll deduction. The plan has cost shares, maximums and limitations similar to typical civilian dental group plans. The amount covered by the plan ranges from 50% to 100%, depending on the type of service. Family members must receive dental services in the United States, Canada, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands or Puerto Rico.
Detailed FMDP coverage and enrollment information can be found at the United Concordia website. Sponsors and family members may call United Concordia’s customer service department toll-free at 844-653-4061.
