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.

NMRTC Clinic Corpus Christi provides comprehensive family-based care. We also provide and coordinate outpatient care relative to the examination, diagnosis, treatment and referrals to consultative services for TRICARE Prime active duty, retirees and their family members.
Pediatricians, family practitioners, general medical officers, physician assistants and nurse practitioners collaborate closely with other clinical services of the Naval Health Clinic and branch medical clinics.
Because we are privileged to serve you, our health care team is committed to providing the highest quality health service possible. All of our clinics offer routine primary and specialty care, each supported by laboratory, radiology, physical therapy and pharmaceutical services. We also have an extensive network of specialty providers.
Our professional staff assigns active-duty members to a primary care manager to foster a better relationship and increase confidence between patient and provider, and we offer all other beneficiaries the opportunity to select a specific primary care provider of your choice in order to experience that hometown provider relationship.
It is our intention to provide you and your family with prompt, courteous and quality health care, and we will always treat you with respect, courtesy and compassion. If you believe that you are not getting outstanding health care, please ask to see a customer relations representative. Each department and clinic has a representative assigned to assist you in resolving your problems or addressing your concerns. You will find their names and photographs posted in the respective areas. You may also contact the customer relations officer at 361-961-6166.

Exceptional Family Member Program
The EFMP is a mandatory enrollment program per OPNAVINST 1754.2 (series) that identifies long-term medical and special education needs of family members and ensures assignment consideration of those needs when transferring. To ensure special needs of family members are considered during the assignment process, service members are required to enroll when the special needs are identified or at least nine months prior to projected rotation date. This provides your detailer time to work your next assignment and consider your family member's special needs along with your career needs and the Navy's needs.
The EFMP coordinator is assigned to the Naval Health Clinic Corpus Christi and can be reached by calling 361-961-6084 or DSN 861-6084.
The dental clinic is located within the Naval Health Clinic. The primary mission of the clinic is to treat all active duty military personnel. Family members and retirees are encouraged to utilize the TRICARE family member and retiree dental plans.
