Seventy one years ago today, the U.S. Air Force became an independent service, creating a new breed of warriors to own and protect the skies. Ever since, Airmen have protected America from air, space and cyberspace aggression.
Each squadron in the Air Force faces different stressors and health challenges that require unique solutions. General David Goldfein, Chief of Staff of the Air Force, is leading an effort to revitalize Air Force squadrons.
Air National Guard Airmen are key to supporting Total Force readiness. Training agreements with civilian hospitals are vital to helping them achieve this support.
Sexual assault can be a deeply traumatizing event in anyone’s life. Across the Air Force, Airmen and their families have access to Sexual Assault Prevention and Response or Family Advocacy Program resources to get support and guidance on how to move forward.
One thing Airmen worry about when they deploy is the well-being of their family, especially children who may have a hard time coping with the challenges that come with a parent’s deployment. The impact of deployment on children is a key component of Airmen readiness. Knowing their family is well helps Airmen focus on the mission.

*An Urgent Message to all Tricare Beneficiaries* Due to the recent switch to Health Net Federal Services, all Tricare beneficiaries with monthly premiums/fees NEED to update their payment information through the Health Net website, especially if you were previously set up for automatic payments with United Healthcare. If payment information is not updated this month, you may risk losing coverage. To date, almost 50,000 plans have not been updated and will likely be dis-enrolled due to failure to pay. If this affects you, please visit the Health Net website and complete an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) form based on your current plan, and mail it to the address at the bottom of the page. The forms can be found here https://www.tricare-west.com/content/hnfs/home/tw/bene/res/bene_forms.html Feel free to call Health Net any time for questions or concerns you may have 1-844-866-9378 Thank you!
All, Since we transitioned from United Healthcare to HealthNet on 1 January 2018, we understand there are still a lot of questions and concerns regarding your referrals. Please see the attached pamphlet for any referral questions you may have or call HealthNet directly at (844)866-9378.
All, Please read this important information regarding TRICARE&#39;s new Urgent Care and enrollment processes through Health Net. Great news for TRICARE Prime enrollees!
