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 TRICARE 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 TRICARE 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 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.
The fundamental mission of the U.S. Army Health Clinic at the Tobyhanna Army Depot is to treat and prevent work-related injuries and illnesses to the Tobyhanna Civilian Workforce and to active-duty personnel attached to the depot. Limited palliative care is also provided to civilian workers in order to complete the work shift and make a determination of work capacity including return to work from non-occupational conditions. A number of required medical evaluations/examinations are also done in the clinic.
Civilian workers and active-duty military personnel should have a primary care physician who manages their long-term or chronic health conditions. Active-duty military personnel not attached to the depot, military retirees and their beneficiaries should use their primary care provider for all primary care medical services under TRICARE.
The closest emergency facility is the emergency room at St. Luke's Hospital on the Monroe Campus, 19 miles from the depot.
