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.
There are no medical services at Surface Combat Systems Center Wallops Island. Military personnel are under TRICARE Remote.
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.
There is no medical or dental care available at the Surface Combat Systems Center at Wallops Island, Virginia. Our servicing Military Treatment Facility is the Naval Health Clinic located at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland (about three hours’ driving time).
All personnel will be enrolled in TRICARE Prime Remote and will be required to choose a civilian primary care manager. Your PCM will provide and manage the majority of your health care needs while assigned to Wallops Island.
While enrolled in TPR, you will also use local civilian dentists under the TRICARE Care Active-Duty Dental Program for all required dental care.
