What is Emergency Care?

Emergency care is needed in the case of a medical emergency. Medical emergencies are the sudden and unexpected onset of a medical condition that:

  • Is threatening to life, limb, or eyesight
  • Requires immediate medical treatment or
  • Manifests painful symptoms that requires immediate response to alleviate suffering

TRICARE International SOS (http://www.tricare-overseas.com/) provides 24/7 support for TRICARE overseas beneficiaries, when they need urgent or emergent care or request medical assistance. This includes real-time English translation services provided over the phone. In South Korea, call toll-free 080-591-0880 or direct 65-6338-9277.

What to do in an emergency?

Call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. Some military treatment facility locations offer emergency room services and others do not, so be sure to be familiar with the clinics and services offered at your location.

What is Urgent Care?

Urgent care is defined as care needed for a non-emergency illness or injury. This means that it does not threaten an individual’s life, limbs, or eyesight, or leave them in intolerable pain for an extended duration of time. An individual may also need to seek urgent care in situations where a health condition or injury may become a more serious risk to their health if left untreated. It is recommended that Department of Defense patients seek urgent care at their local MTF locations first if possible. TRICARE’s new Urgent Care Pilot Program covers two urgent care visits per fiscal year, depending on your type of plan and location. Full details can be found here. For more information about Urgent Care and what is covered in your plan, please visit TRICARE.

A rigorous training course conducted in partnership with Pima Community College enables Air Force paramedics to provide paramount patient-center care during medical emergencies. Read how this course created a passion for saving lives for one Senior Airman.
On the early morning of June 10th, the Acute Lung Rescue Team flew with short notice to El Paso, Texas, to perform a life saving Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation procedure on a patient and medically evacuated him all in under 12 hours. This is just another example of our warrior medics having global reach and expert care any time, anywhere. Great job team!

On June 3, 2018, the Fuego Volcano erupted in Guatemala. Within 72 hours, a team of seven 59th Medical Wing pediatric intensive care doctors, respiratory specialists, and nurses were on the ground in Guatemala City to provide care for six children injured by the eruption. The injured patients were flown to Galveston, Texas, to receive further care at the Shriners Hospital for Children. The mission was a joint effort with San Antonio Military Medical Center’s Burn Flight Team and Mississippi Air National Guard’s 172d Airlift Wing.
