Pharmacy renovations underway

The Dunham U.S. Army Health Clinic Main Pharmacy will be under renovation from August to December 2017 to improve our ability to provide efficient, safe, quality care to our beneficiary population.  We apologize in advance for any increased wait times you may experience due to decreased work space in the pharmacy and the number of windows we can operate during construction. 

A few tips are provided below:

· Starting September 1st, all Dunham pharmacy refill prescriptions will be dispensed through the PX Pharmacy location.  The PX Pharmacy hours of operation will be 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. M,T,W,F and 7:30 a.m. to noon on Thursdays. Please allow two business days to process all refill requests and call    (717) 245-3874 if you would like to check on the status of your refill prescription.

· No changes to pharmacy operations at Fillmore U.S. Army Health Clinic or Fort Indiantown Gap pharmacy locations.

· Please call (717) 245-4606 if you would like to check on the status of any new prescriptions that were ordered/faxed/called-in by your provider before traveling to the Dunham Main Pharmacy to pick them up.

· Our Pharmacy Staff is always available to assist you at the Dunham Main Pharmacy with any questions or concerns you have about your medications.

Improvements to the TRICARE Dental Program
 
On May 1, 2017, United Concordia Companies, Inc. (United Concordia) began managing the TRICARE Dental Program (TDP). Beneficiaries do not need to take any actions to continue their coverage.
 
The TDP is a voluntary dental benefit for eligible active duty family members, National Guard and Reserve members and their families. Several improvements to the TDP include:
 
·         The annual maximum TDP will pay will increase from $1,300 to $1,500
 
·         The TDP will consider sealants a free and preventive treatment, and no longer include a 20 percent cost share
 
·         The auto-enrollment age for family members will lower from age four to one
 
·         For most beneficiaries, the monthly premium rate will decrease
 
 
The TDP will continue to provide access to a network of civilian dentists around the world. Your access to quality care will not change. However, some dentists currently in the TDP network may leave, while new ones will join. So, those currently enrolled may need to find a new dental provider. To find participating dentists please visit: https://www.uccitdp.com/find-a-dentist/. You may nominate dentists to participate by clicking on “Nominate Your Dentist” on the page linked above and completing a simple form.
