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."
For more information on getting copies of medical records, visit Request Copies of Medical Records.

Fort Wainwright is considered an overseas installation. Completion of the Exceptional Family Member Program screening and completion of command sponsorship paperwork is required of all family members prior to arriving to Fort Wainwright, Alaska. Availability of specialized medical care is limited in Alaska, so some medical problems cannot be supported here. Soldiers and/or family members will be referred to off-post local medical by Patient Affairs/Administration if the care is available in the community. If the care is not available, the soldier and/or family members will be sent temporary duty travel to 3rd Medical Group Hospital at Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage or possibly on to Madigan Army Medical Center at Fort Lewis, Washington. If these military hospitals cannot provide the treatment necessary, soldiers and/or family members will be transported to a civilian hospital that can provide the necessary medical treatment per Patient Affairs at Bassett Army Community Hospital.
General dentistry is available for active-duty members. Family member care is strictly limited to space availability. No scheduled appointments are available.
