Welcoming Center

Your introduction to care at NHCH begins at the Welcoming Center, where TRICARE Prime beneficiaries begin a one-stop check-in process to enroll to NHCH. The staff will assist you with TRICARE enrollment, medical record updating, primary care manager assignment and initial appointments for any care. Active-duty members will also update their Periodic Health Assessment requirements, part of the Individual Medical Readiness process. UnitedHealthcare Military & Veterans representatives and Health Benefits Advisors are available to answer TRICARE and enrollment questions. During the check-in process, information about several resources, including TRICARE Online, the Exceptional Family Member Program and advance directives, will be provided. Bring ID cards, Social Security numbers, private health insurance cards, medical records, dental records (if active duty) and immunization records when you check in. NHCH will request that your medical record (civilian or military) be sent from your previous provider. A Request for Medical/Dental Records, DD Form 877, will facilitate this process if completed prior to moving to Hawaii. This form is available from your current military treatment facility medical records department. A copy of your civilian records will also be requested.
