23rd mdg welcome info update 2012

  1. 1. 23rd Medical Group Medical Right Start Information Welcome to the 23rd Medical Group Moody Air Force Base, GeorgiaThe 23rd Medical Group would like to welcome you to Moody Air Force Base, Georgia. Our mission is to providemedical and dental services to maintain the highest degree of readiness for the 23rd Wing and the 93rd Air GroundOperations Wing. Our group supports the health and morale of over 11,000 beneficiaries by providing or arranging healthcare in an extensive community-based system.As a primary care facility, there are no emergency services available at the 23rd Medical Group (MDG). For a medicalemergency requiring an ambulance, either on or off Moody AFB, call 911 immediately. Our ambulances onlyrespond to emergencies on Moody AFB. Depending on the nature of the emergency, patient(s) will be transported viaambulance to a local civilian emergency department.General Clinic Information: 257-2778 (Area Code 229 and DSN is 460)The main telephone number to the MDG is 1-229-257-2778, or toll free at 1-800-889-3041. Updated information willbe available at this number to assist beneficiaries with care options. It is very important to always have one of thesenumbers with you: memorize it, enter it in to your cell phone, write it down and keep it in your wallet or purse – justmake sure it is available when you need it! SAVE THESE NUMBERS.Regular duty hours: Monday through Friday from 0730 to 1630 (Pharmacy until 1700).Closed on weekends, Federal holidays, ACC Family days and Wednesday AM until 0900, due to MDG training.The MDG operates in accordance with TRICARE access standards: We provide an appointment for acute issues within24 hours, 7 days for routine appointments and 28 days for specialty and wellness appointments.On-line appointments are available. To schedule an appointment on-line go to www.tricareonline.com. Each familymember will be prompted to create their own account.During a normal duty day, when a beneficiary calls for an acute care appointment, the MDG appointment clerks willfirst try to schedule an appointment with the patient’s Primary Care Manager (PCM) or a MDG provider. If all of ourappointments are booked, information pertaining to the nature of the call will be sent to the PCM’s registered nurse (RN).The RN returning the call will provide clinical guidance or consult with the beneficiary’s PCM to determine the bestcourse of action and ensure the care needed is rendered as quickly as possible. This may include walking patients into theclinic schedule, booking them for the next day or referring them to a network provider.Active duty service members (ADSM) with acute care needs will be taken care of within the 24-hour standard by a nurseor MDG provider. Priority is given to ADSM during normal duty hours.Unless it is a true emergency, all TRICARE Prime beneficiaries enrolled at the 23rd MDG are required to contacttheir PCM team during normal duty hours (0730-1630) before seeking medical care from a network provider.After hours, weekend and holiday care advice through the PCM On-Call is available by calling 257-2778.If medical care is inappropriately used or not properly coordinated through the PCM team, the beneficiary will bebilled.What is a Medical Emergency? A medical emergency is defined as a THREAT TO LIFE, LIMB OR EYE-SIGHT.Examples of conditions that would require emergency care at an ER include but are not limited to: severe bleeding, chestpain, shortness of breath or inability to breathe, allergic reactions, spinal cord or back injury, or eye injuries. If you have atrue emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest ER. Authorizations for true emergencies are honored, however, a followup with the MDG is necessary the next duty day to let us know what happened and to avoid potential billing problems.Revised 13 Jan 2010 1 of 8
  2. 2. 23rd Medical Group Medical Right Start InformationCalling 911 While on Moody AFB: The Ambulance Service is Moody’s primary flight line response and should onlybe used in a true medical emergency. Calling 911 on base for minor problems can risk delaying response to an in-flightemergency or major medical crisis. Please do not call the ambulance if there is no medical emergency or if you do notintend to be treated or taken to the ER in the ambulance. If activating 911 while on Moody AFB, please be certain to stateyou are calling from a location on Moody AFB.Urgent Care Center (UCC) vs. Emergency Room (ER) Care: UCCs are an excellent alternative for those faced with acondition that requires urgent care but is not a true life threatening emergency. UCCs are open late hours and onweekends. They are equipped to handle most urgent medical situations efficiently at a fraction of the cost of an ER visit.Urgent care is for an illness or injury that would not result in further disability or death if not treated immediately, butdoes require professional attention within 24 hours. Urgent care may have the potential to develop into an emergency iftreatment is delayed longer than 24 hours.Examples of urgent care conditions include: minor injuries, high fever, severe headaches, sprains, broken bones, smallcuts requiring stitches, excessive vomiting, eye pain/infections, severe colds and/or flu, earaches/infections and sorethroats.The ER should only be used when emergency care is required for serious medical, maternity, or psychiatric conditionsthat would result in loss of life, limb or sight without immediate medical attention.UCCs are the preferred option for conditions that are not life threatening. In either case, beneficiaries must contact theirPCM before being seen. If seen out of the area, a follow-up call should be made to PCM team regarding whatfacility and treating physician was used for care, completes the referral process and helps avoid unnecessarycharges that would result from Point of Service Care as described in the TRICARE rules.If traveling outside of the Moody AFB area, contact Humana Military at 1-800-444-5445 or www.humana-military.comfor help locating a provider and obtaining a referral. A list of local UCC and ER is provided at the end of this handout.Medical In-processing: 257-2917Our Medical Right Start (MRS) program is designed to orient newly assigned members and their families to medicalservices and assist in completing a comprehensive review and update of all active duty medical readiness requirements.In accordance with AFI 41-210 and Wing direction, each active duty member is scheduled for this mandatory formation(uniform required) and spouses are encouraged to attend.
