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.

Active Duty Weight Control Class – Are you interested in discussing the basic principles of your dietary habits, including food selection and appropriate weight loss to achieve goals and improve your health and wellbeing? All soldiers who are flagged and put on the Active Duty Weight Control Program are required to have a medical screening done by their Primary Care Manager, to ensure that their weight gain is not medically related. If the soldier is not able to have the medical screening done before their initial ADWCP consult, they should at least have a set appointment time and date with their clinic to have the screening done. The screening must be completed before a follow-up appointment with the dietician three weeks later. A nutritionist will provide this service by telehealth.
