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.
The Luke Air Force Base Clinic is an outpatient military treatment facility with specialties in family practice, women's health, pediatrics, orthopedics, ear-nose-throat, optometry, mental health, physical therapy, internal medicine, immunizations, allergy, cardiology, dental and flight medicine. The clinic does not provide emergency services. Luke AFB is in the TRICARE West region.
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.
When updating your file, make sure to contact the health benefits advisor for the very latest information on TRICARE as changes occur quite frequently within this area.

Availability and entitlement
Medical care services are offered on a priority basis. First priority of care is to active-duty military. Second priority is to family members of active-duty military, with retired military and family members of retired military following in the eligibility chain. Dental care services are available to active-duty military only. Only emergency dental care is offered to other eligible individuals. When services are unavailable, those eligible for medical/dental care are referred to TRICARE.
TRICARE is the current military health plan at LAFB. It provides three options for obtaining health care:
Health care delivery under TRICARE began April 1, 1997. Active-duty personnel assigned to LAFB are automatically enrolled in TRICARE Prime and assigned to a LAFB primary care team. Prime active-duty members receive priority care within the MTF. The next priority is other Prime enrollees registered at the MTF in TRICARE Prime. In this program, Luke AFB Hospital works with a private contractor, TriWest Healthcare Alliance, to administer the program. TRICARE Prime enrollees receive the highest priority of care at LAFB.
All others are seen on a space-available basis. The local community offers all medical specialties through major medical centers. You may request a Luke AFB Patient Handbook from the clinic for more specific information.
LAFB has four pharmacy options for your convenience. The main pharmacy is in the clinic. The satellite pharmacy is located near the base exchange and is for all off-base prescriptions and the third pharmacy is inside the base exchange. The fourth is located in the East Valley and distributes prescription refills Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. It is located at 301 East 4th Street Suite 7, Scottsdale, AZ 85251.
