Health care services provided by the Department of Defense 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.
Active Duty (Compo 1) and AGR personnel (Compo 2 and 3) assigned to Fort McCoy will enroll in TRICARE Prime Remote or TPR. Enrollment is completed though the DMDC and Beneficiary Web Enrollment portal. After enrollment in TPR, military personnel will need to select a Primary Care Manager (PCM). The PCM can be a physician (MD, DO), Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant (PA-C). Utilize the Humana and TRICARE websites to locate providers to assess A) are they active TRICARE providers and B) are they accepting new patients. The family members of active military personnel have options in terms of which TRICARE plan they subscribe to. Family members can opt in to TPR. The benefit here is there are no co-payments or deductible payments for care provided. Enrollment into TPR is voluntary and must be completed in the DMDC and BWE portal. If family members do not opt in for TPR, they will default to TRICARE Select. This plan does not require referrals like TPR does, but there are co-payments and deductibles for service.
The Occupational Health Clinic does not see active military service personnel, except on the rare occurrence.
Tricare Prime Remote (TPR) military personnel should plan to self-manage their own medical records.With the advent of the EMR or electronic medical record, both Gunderson and Mayo Clinics have exceptional patient portal applications that allow the user to download and print all medical records. This is highly important because there is no medical record tracking mechanism for the TPR population, so it is essential for retirement purposes and beyond, to maintain a personal medical file.
There are NO dental services at Fort McCoy. Active duty personnel are required to enroll themselves and their family members (if they want or need dental insurance) into the Active Duty Dental Program (ADDP).
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 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 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 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."
