Attention Beneficiaries: The 78 MDG is currently closed for the enrollment of Active Duty Family Members, Retirees and Retiree Family Members. The AFMS has updated the enrollment policy to establish a better balance between our patient demand and the resources available to fulfill those needs.

Retirees and family members of retirees: Would it be more convenient for you to see a civilian PCM while remaining on TRICARE Prime? If you are a retiree or retiree family member, you and your family can currently move from a military PCM on Robins Air Force Base to a civilian PCM in the network. This opportunity will remain available until further notice. If interested, please contact TRICARE at 1-800-444-5445 or visit the TRICARE Operations & Patient Administration desk located in the clinic to discuss how this may affect your benefits, copays and other options. Walk-in hours are 0730-1630 Monday - Friday. During this period, Robins Family Health & Pediatric clinics are currently closed for new retiree and retiree family member enrollments.
