Q. How do I Enroll in MiCare
A. Don’t delay — enroll in MiCare today! One MiCare enrollee said it is, “empowering to be able to communicate via the Internet about routine health issues – and can very well prevent visits to the clinic…”

Registration is a face-to-face process to ensure security of patient health information. Enrollment can be initiated at the Military Treatment Facility. All you need to do is show your military identification card and provide some basic information such as your name, social security number, birthday and e-mail address. You will then receive an email to finish your enrollment. Responding to the e-mail is a very important step. You will only be able to complete the registration process by following the e-mail instructions. Once you have accomplished this you are ready to start messaging with your care team.

The future of military health has arrived and Mike O’Callaghan Federal Medical Center patients can be part of it! Take command of your healthcare and register for MiCare today.

MiCare participation is limited to those beneficiaries empanelled to a Primary Care Manager at the Military Treatment Facility.
