Military Health System Update

The United States Military Health System is in the process of transitioning 50 military treatment facilities to care for active-duty service members only affecting some families’ access to health care on the installation. MHS is one of the nation’s largest and most complex health care institutions and the world’s preeminent military health care delivery operation. MHS emergency medicine saves lives on the battlefield, and the system’s services fight infectious diseases worldwide. Additionally, the MHS ensures timely health care at military treatment facilities, hospitals and clinics for more than 9.5 million service members, military retirees and their families.

MHS Genesis

The new electronic health record, MHS GENESIS, provides enhanced, secure technology to manage health information. MHS GENESIS integrates inpatient and outpatient results that connect medical and dental information across the field of care, from the point of injury to the military treatment facility. When implementation is complete, MHS GENESIS will provide a single health record for service members and veterans.

Defense Health Agency

The DHA, an integrated Combat Support Agency, assumed administration and management responsibilities from the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force for military hospitals and clinics in 2019. Congress initiated this change to achieve a flexible, adaptable, practical and integrated system to manage military treatment facilities.

Medical Treatment Facilities Refocus on Readiness

Under this change, 50 military MTFs are transitioning to support active-duty military readiness only. Most of the MTFs affected are outpatient clinics. This change means about 200,000 patients will move from MTFs to TRICARE civilian provider networks for primary care.  


Operated by the DHA, TRICARE offers comprehensive and affordable health benefits. Integrated health care is available through MTFs and civilian providers’ networks run by civilian managed care support contractors.

Active-duty service members are enrolled in TRICARE Prime. But other beneficiaries will get to choose to enroll in either Prime or Select. Prime has fewer out-of-pocket costs but offers fewer providers to choose from than Select. Use TRICARE’s Plan Finder to evaluate your family’s options.
