Tripler How to receive health care in Hawaii

When active-duty military members arrive in Hawaii, their personnel office will ensure that they in-process through their service’s military treatment facility (MTF) and learn about their TRICARE Healthcare System options.

TRICARE Prime, the military’s managed care option, is available at Tripler Army Medical Center, U.S. Army Health Clinic-Schofield Barracks, Marine Corps Base Kaneohe Clinic, the Navy’s Makalapa Clinic, the Coast Guard’s Sand Island Clinic and the Air Force’s Hickam Clinic.

Please visit www.uhcmilitarywest.com or call 877-988-9378 to enroll or transfer your Prime to Hawaii.

You and your family will be assigned a primary care manager (PCM) at a clinic who will manage your health care. Family members of active-duty Soldiers and retirees are now eligible for open enrollment at any MTF on island.

For more information about TRICARE-UHC in Hawaii, please call 877-988-9378. Be sure to ask about TRICARE Online.

RelayHealth

RelayHealth is a web-based service which enables providers and patients to communicate securely. RelayHealth is an interactive website where patients can receive preventive care reminders, send a note to their provider, request prescription renewals and refills, request lab and test results, and schedule appointments. For more information about RelayHealth, talk to your clinic and primary care provider.

Soldiers are enrolled in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) when they enter active duty. For family members to be enrolled, however, their military sponsors must verify their family relationships by presenting legal documents (marriage certificates, birth certificates or adoption papers, etc.) to their local military personnel office. If this is not done, family members may be denied health benefits other than emergency care. Newly born infants should be enrolled in DEERS as soon as possible after birth.
