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.
Military personnel and their dependents are served by the Yuma Proving Ground and Marine Corps Air Station health clinics. You may choose either YPG or MCAS as your primary provider. Clinical specialty services available at YPG include pharmacy, lab and radiology, with limited physical therapy and psychology. Referrals are provided for specialty services that are not available on the post.
Some specialties are not available within Yuma or the local area, and may require travel to San Diego or Phoenix. It is very important to make sure that Exceptional Family Member Program information is up to date for all dependents prior to permanent change of station moves to ensure services are available.
Service members should contact TRICARE West at 844-866-9378 to transfer care for themselves and their families upon arrival.
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.
