 Branch Health Clinic Atsugi

BMC Atsugi

We are a tenant command aboard U.S. Naval Air Facility (NAF), Atsugi, Japan. The Branch Health Clinic provides primary health services, dental services and flight medicine to approximately 30 commands and activities stationed aboard the NAF. Health care is limited to primary medical and dental care. Specialists are located at USNH Yokosuka which is approximately one to two hours from NAF Atsugi. A weekday shuttle is available; otherwise, the roundtrip tolls are 2200 yen, out-of-pocket. Also, our Clinic provides routine obstetrics service, but deliveries are performed at U.S. Naval Hospital Yokosuka.

Primary Care Clinic

The primary care clinic operates from 7:30am - 4:00pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Wednesday, the clinic is closed after 12:00pm. Patients are seen only by appointment at these times. After hours medical consultation can be obtained by calling 264-3951 on-base, or off-base at 046-763-3951

Emergency Care: Clinic personnel respond to medical emergencies on base, but it is not an emergency room. The clinic relies on NH Yokosuka for most emergency care and will transport patients to them immediately.

Pharmacy

The pharmacy is located next to medical records. We encourage the utilization of the call-in refill line or Or visit the TRICARE Online Pharmacy Refill Page. (**NOTE**: You'll have to complete the self-registration to use this service). Eligible beneficiaries as determined by DEERS, including civilian pay-patients, can use this service.

This is to pick up your prescription locally, not through the TRICARE Mail Order Pharmacy (TMOP).

Operation hours are Monday - Friday, 0800-1630.

While we would like to be able to provide every pharmaceutical item you need, please keep in mind we are a small MTF located overseas with limited resources. Some of our limitations are outlined below.

  1. If you are PCSing we will be happy to give you up to a 3 month supply maximum.
  2. If you have no refills or your prescription is expired, you must see a provider or check with front desk clerk.
  3. When using the refill phone line, please allow 24 hours before pick up.
  4. If you are new to Atsugi we can transfer any remaining refills from prescriptions you’ve had filled at other MTF’s. To do this we need a label from your existing prescription. We cannot fill or transfer prescriptions from non-MTF providers.
  5. We do not carry every single medication and we have very limited space. If you require an item we do not normally stock (non-formulary) your provider can submit a non-formulary request form. If you have any questions please, call 264-3957.
Laboratory

The lab at BHC is open 0730-1600 Monday through Friday. Military ID cards are required to ensure patient identification. The laboratory cannont disclose the results of tests due to follow-up care that may be necessary. The doctor will contact you with your results.

WIC Appointments: Walk-in, Mon - Fri 1300-1600 (unavailable Wed.). We set this time aside due to the fact of children take a little more time and care. This way we can optimize the care we give to each patient. Results will be faxed to the WIC office at Zama. Please do not come on the day of appointment.
