Yuma, AZ 85369
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 Branch Health Clinic's mission is to provide general practice outpatient medical care to active-duty members of the uniformed services. Additionally, subject to the availability of medical staff, space and other resources, an array of general medical care is provided to family members of active-duty service member, retirees and their family members on an enrollment basis.
Inpatient care for active-duty members is provided in the local community or through the Naval Hospital at San Diego and Camp Pendleton. Family members and retirees requiring inpatient and outpatient medical care not available at the clinic are referred to local civilian medical sources under TRICARE.
TRICARE Prime is an enrollment-based system devised to provide beneficiaries with a primary care manager who will assess each patient's medical needs and provide appropriate medical care.
Clinic hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. For clinic appointments, call the appointment line at 928-269-2700.
After-Hours Care -- After hours and on weekends, when the clinic is closed, all routine medical care will be deferred until the next working day. Contact the Nurse Advice Line at 800-874-2273 (TRICARE Prime active-duty service members enrolled with the medical treatment facility) for urgent medical care authorization/advice.
Emergencies -- All emergencies are handled by the local civilian hospital.
The dental clinic is available for use by active-duty military only.
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."
