We Are Opening Our Doors to More Patients
More than 3,400 Coastal Bend area TRICARE Prime and Standard beneficiaries under the age of 63 and eligible to receive their health care at a Military Treatment Facility (MTF) were notified by mail this month of immediate enrollment opportunities at Naval Health Clinic Corpus Christi and Naval Branch Health Clinic Kingsville.
The letters based on home proximity to the clinics were addressed to 1,054 Prime within a 30-minute drive; 1,882 Prime beyond a 30-minute drive; and 2,574 Standard, and were signed by Commanding Officer, Navy Capt. Jimmy A. Bradley, who credited the increased beneficiary capacity to staffing realignments and facility upgrades.
"The entire staff of Naval Health Clinic Corpus Christi Health System is working hard to become your Military Treatment Facility (MTF) of choice and we have great news regarding your primary care," Bradley stated in his letter. "Our clinic has transitioned to a proven Medical Home Port model where you are at the center of a collaborative team of caregivers, led by your Primary Care Manager (PCM). This team of providers is standing by to meet your preventive, routine and urgent needs."
TRICARE Prime is a managed care option available in prime service areas to ensure medical readiness of the active duty force by augmenting the capability and capacity of MTFs. Active duty must enroll in Prime and pay nothing out-of-pocket. All others can choose to enroll or use TRICARE Standard.
TRICARE Standard is a fee-for-service plan available in the United States. Beneficiaries don't have to enroll-coverage is automatic as long as they are registered in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) and show eligible for TRICARE.
The letters to beneficiaries within a 30-minute drive contained the name of the recipient's new Primary Care Manager (PCM) effective Sept. 10, 2014, and instructed them to make appointments by calling (361) 961-6000 or 1-877-NAVYMED. After registering at https://app.relayhealth.com/Patients/Registration.aspx?bid they can securely email their PCMs via Medical Home Port Online (RelayHealth).
"By having you enrolled to one of our MTFs and becoming part of our family, we - like all of Navy Medicine - are doing our part to optimize capabilities and improve value at all Naval MTFs across the U.S.," Bradley added.
Beneficiaries beyond a 30-minute drive as well as the Standard beneficiaries have the option to enroll by completing a DD 2876 application online http://www.tricare.mil/bwe, submitting via U.S. mail, or calling (800) 444-5445.
