CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. --
All TRICARE Service Centers in the United States will end administrative walk-in services April 1, 2014, according the Defense Health Agency website.
There are two TSCs aboard the base; one at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton located near the main gate and one at the Joint Reception Center on main side.
This change does not affect TRICARE benefits or health care delivery and no changes are proposed for overseas TSCs.
Beneficiaries can still accomplish any administrative task online or by phone. The new “I want to…” feature at www.tricare.mil gets beneficiaries quickly to the right place to check claims, find a doctor, update e-mail and addresses, find phone numbers and more. The Western Region phone number for TRICARE Prime and Standard is 877-988-9378. The number for TRICARE for Life beneficiaries is 866-773-0404.
