Family Health Clinic
The FHC provides routine, preventive and acute outpatient care for enrolled DOD beneficiaries.
We aim to improve the health of our beneficiary population by providing safe and quality, evidence-based health care. Our FHC providers assess, manage, and coordinate acute and preventive health medical care, promote telehealth services, initiate specialty referrals/emergency transfers, perform minor procedures, and provide initial diagnosis, imaging, labs, and medication administration/refill.
Our Family Health clinical pharmacist has additional services for our population that are by provider referral only. These include medical management and monitoring of labs for specific diagnoses, to achieve and maintain long-term goals for a variety of conditions such as diabetes, cholesterol issues, tobacco cessation, and high blood pressure. Additionally, the clinical pharmacist can administer battlefield acupuncture.
Patients will be referred to a TRICARE network specialist for conditions beyond the scope of the FHC.
Acute appointments are for non-life-threatening illnesses that require patients to be seen by an FHC provider within 24 hours. Please call 866-645-4584 to request a same-day appointment, if available. Beneficiaries may utilize TRICARE network urgent care centers if acute appointments are unavailable.
Future appointments are for current illnesses not causing severe symptoms, and the management of chronic conditions.
Future appointments include:
- Annual exams with your provider
- Follow-ups or annual checkups for chronic conditions like asthma, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, chronic pain, etc.
- Well-woman exams and pap smears
Future appointments may be booked by calling 866-645-4584 or through the MHS GENESIS Patient Portal
When you see your Primary Care Manager, please:
- Bring a current medication list
- Let your provider know what medication refills are needed
- Bring a blood sugar log if you are diabetic
- Bring a blood pressure log if you have hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Make a prioritized list of any concerns or questions
Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time due to consistent prolonged waits at the gates and unpredictable travel time in the Hampton Roads area, especially during inclement weather. While out of our patients’ control, these unpredictable delays can put the patient at risk of losing their appointment slot and needing to be rescheduled. In addition, early arrival allows you the time to fill out any appointment paperwork.
- Please call the appointment line as soon as possible if you are unable to make your scheduled appointment to cancel or reschedule.
Contact the clinic via the MHS GENESIS Patient Portal
with medication renewal requests when you have two weeks of medication remaining. Avoid lines at the pharmacy and have your chronic medications sent through Express Scripts to your home or by texting “Get in Line” to 844-866-2689.
Telephone consults can be completed without an appointment. Providers review TCONs and determine the best action to grant the request.
Once a TCON is placed, the PCM and their team have three business days to respond. Administrative documents may take up to 10 business days to complete. A member of the PCM team will contact the patient via telephone with the provider’s response or a return message may be sent through the patient portal if that is how the message was initiated.
