Health care services provided by the Defense Department 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 clinics and services available at military treatment facilities vary by location. If you live near an MTF, consult that MTF's website for relevant information. Ireland Army Health Clinic, 502-624-9333, is the MTF located at Fort Knox. If you move to a different TRICARE region, do not change your enrollment until you arrive at your new duty station and then follow the procedures online. Most active-duty soldiers assigned to U.S. Army Recruiting Command enroll in TRICARE Prime Remote due to the distance of where they live and work from a military installation. You can determine if you live in a remote location served by TRICARE Prime Remote online. Keep in mind, TRICARE uses both your home zip code and work zip code to determine eligibility. Due to COVID-19 concerns note that all soldiers and family assigned to Ireland Army Health Clinic will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms prior to access to the building. All patients entering the building will have to have a face covering or mask. If you do not have one, one will be provided. Masks will have to remain on during your visit.
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.
