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.

Emergency services are provided at both clinics but are limited to what can be provided and the hours of operation. Ambulance service is provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Naval Base Guam, Branch Health Clinic Apra Harbor is located next to the NEX Gas Station. Hours of operation are Monday - Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. NBG Clinic is closed on weekends and holidays.
