Located in the cadet area is an outpatient clinic, which provides primary medical care for cadets, fliers and other eligible beneficiaries who work in the cadet area. All other active-duty members and their families receive care at the main clinic or within the local TRICARE network.

Active duty, retirees and their family members must be registered in the Composite Health Care System and DEERS.
