Moving to a new TRICARE region
If you anticipate a move to another TRICARE region, work with your local TRICARE service center or case manager before your move to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible. On arrival at the new duty location, you or your sponsor should contact the beneficiary counseling and assistance coordinator or the TRICARE service center to ensure the transition plans are in place and to obtain authorizations for TRICARE Extended Care Health Option services, if applicable.
Beneficiary counseling and assistance coordinator
All TRICARE regional offices and most military treatment facilities are staffed with beneficiary counseling and assistance coordinators. They provide information, guidance and assistance on benefit options, TRICARE Prime enrollment, special authorizations, status of claims, eligibility and assistance with referrals and appointments. If you or your family member has more severe needs, contact your TRICARE case manager.

Installation Specific Information
An exceptional Family Member is a Family Member (child or adult) with any physical, emotional, developmental, or intellectual disability who requires special treatment, therapy, education, training, or counseling. EFMP is a mandatory enrollment program that is based on public law and Department of Defense mandates. Both Army Community Service Exceptional Family Member Program and Blanchfield Army Community Hospital’s EFMP program work collectively to provide support to EFMP Active Duty Family members.
The BACH program helps identify and document Active Duty Family members who have special health care, education or other support needs. The documentation assists in obtaining special support services and determines the impact of such needs on the Soldier's assignments. All Active Duty Soldiers with OCONUS assignments must schedule a medical records screening for each Family member. This screening must be completed before Family travel application can be processed. Appointments are scheduled when Soldiers attend their levy briefing or by calling 270-798-8830. BACH EFMP personnel will also assist you in finding the services needed within community hospitals and schools. EFMP enrollment does not guarantee assignment deletions, deferments or compassionate reassignments.
