In order to obtain medical care, you must first update your status in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Recording System (DEERS). DEERS is a computerized database of military sponsors, families and others worldwide who are entitled to TRICARE benefits. DEERS registration is automatic for active duty service members, but they must take action to register their family members into the database.
To update all DEERS information visit the local ID card facility, Building 4700, or call 442-5010. To update your address and telephone number visit www.dmdc.osd.mil and click on DoD Community and then click on personnel services.
