Nurse Advice Line

Sometimes it is difficult to know if and when to seek medical help for acute health problems, so having professional help at a moment's notice is invaluable. The Military Health System's new Nurse Advice Line for TRICARE beneficiaries does just that, toll-free, 24 hours a day, seven days a week by dialing 1-800-TRICARE (874-2273); Option 1.

The NAL is a team of registered nurses who are available to answer a variety of urgent healthcare questions. They can help you decide whether self-care is the best option, or if it is better to see a healthcare provider. There will always be a live-person on the line to address beneficiary concerns.

The NAL offers a variety of solutions for all TRICARE beneficiaries. When necessary, the NAL can make same-day appointments with the beneficiary's PCM for beneficiaries enrolled to the MTF. If a same-day appointment is not available, the NAL can re-direct the beneficiary to the closest urgent care center. All other TRICARE beneficiaries who are not enrolled to a MTF will receive professional health advice about their urgent health concern and when to seek urgent care.

When calling the NAL, a customer service representative will verify the beneficiary's eligibility through the Defense Enrollment and Eligibility Reporting System. Those with an acute health care concern or question will be connected with a registered nurse that will ask the beneficiary a series of very standard questions to determine the next steps and allow the NAL nurse to provide the best advice possible. Beneficiaries can still call their PCM or clinic, but the NAL is another option for accessing the care in a timely fashion.

After hours care: To obtain authorization for non-emergency care or for out-of-area care, callUnitedHealthcare Military & Veterans toll-free at 1 (877) 988-9378.

All patients are seen by appointment only. For appointments or information, call (310) 653-CURE (653-2873). You can also log onto TRICAREOnline to make appointments.

If this happens, the clinic respectfully asks that you call to cancel or reschedule your appointments 24 hours in advance if you cannot make it so we can offer your appointment to another patient. If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, call (310) 653-CURE during regular business hours. If booked via TRICARE Online, medical appointments can also be cancelled online.

A patient is considered late if they arrive more than 10 minutes after their scheduled appointment time. Don't be That Guy (or Gal)!

Patients who arrive late will either be categorized as a "No-Show", offered the opportunity to reschedule their appointment, or given the option to be seen after other scheduled patients at the discretion of the provider.

RAF Alconbury/Molesworth Community, Bun-D informed AAFES they are terminating their contract, and effective immediately will no longer operate on RAF Alconbury. Neither AAFES nor the 423 ABG had advance notice of this decision. AAFES will bring in another vendor, but this will take some time. They will keep us appraised of their progress. The remaining food options on RAF Alconbury are Subway, the Commissary (sandwiches/salad bar during lunch hours), The Grind, Bowling Center grill, AAFES Troop Store (roller grill) and the rotating food trucks. Also, the Stukeley Inn has started Wednesday lunch buffets on a trial basis. As always thank you for your service! We, along with AAFES and all of our partners & stakeholders are committed to always providing the best possible support to this community, and keeping you informed along the way. v/r Col Bromen
