Child enrollments require original or certified copy of birth certificate or live birth record along with child’s Social Security card, if one has been issued. Military and civilian employees are issued their common access card at the same location. Operating hours are Monday-Wednesday and Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The office is closed for all federal holidays and is open on training holidays, but with limited staffing.
All military Family members of active-duty, retired or deceased Soldiers must be enrolled in the Defense Eligibility Enrollment Reporting System prior to receiving non-emergency medical care. For more information, call 526-3704.
