Primary Care Visits
Blanchfield’s Soldier-Centered Medical Homes are team-based and holistic concept which allows us to provide you more personalized care with multiple ways to access your care team. From office visits and walk-in services to telephone consults (TCON) and secure messaging, you have even more ways to get the care you need.
This model is based on the belief that your well-being should always be at the center of every decision about your health. With this new approach, you will receive more personalized and coordinated care, supported by an entire team to maximize overall wellness. You no longer have just a primary care provider, but an entire primary care team!
Soldiers within the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and Fort Campbell are assigned to a Soldier-Centered Medical Home aligned with Soldier's units. Soldiers receive their care at one of the following medical homes: Byrd Solider-Centered Medical Home, Campbell Army Airfield, or LaPointe Soldier-Centered Medical Home. Soldiers assigned to a garrison or medical unit are assigned to Blanchfield. Soldiers have unique requirements to maintain their medical readiness to support the overall readiness mission. Each unit's primary care manager can assist Soldiers in ensuring their medical readiness requirements are met.
Soldiers should speak to their care team within their assigned Soldier-Centered Medical Home for physicals. Physicals are needed for Airborne school, transition, traveling overseas or transitioning out of the Army (ETS).
All Soldier Centered Medical Homes, including Byrd, LaPointe and Campbell Army Airfield, offer immunizations for active duty Soldiers. Immunizations offered include: HPV, Shingles, tuberculosis, pneumonia, measles, mumps, rubella, Anthrax, hepatitis A and B, diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough, meningitides, and polio. Soldiers may schedule an appointment to receive their immunizations via TOL at https://www.tricareonline.com or BACH’s Appointment line at 270-798-4677 or 931-431-4677.
Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)
The Fort Campbell Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) serves more than 4,500 individuals with special needs. EFMP is a mandatory enrollment program that works in partnership with various military and civilian agencies to provide comprehensive and coordinated community support, housing, educational and medical support, and personnel services to Families with special needs. An Exceptional Family Member (EFM) is a Family member (child or adult) with any physical, emotional, developmental or intellectual disability that requires special treatment, therapy, education, training or counseling.
The following Soldiers with EFMs must enroll in the program: Active Army, U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) Soldiers in the USAR-Active Guard Reserve program and Army National Guard (ARNG) personnel. Enrollment allows assignment managers at Department of the Army Human Resource Command (HRC) personnel agencies to consider the documented medical and special education needs of the EFM in the assignment process. All Family members applying to accompanying a Soldier to an overseas assignment are required to be screened through the EFMP to ensure any special considerations are identified prior to relocation. When possible, Soldiers are assigned to an area where their EFM’s medical and special education needs can be met. This decision will depend on a valid personnel requirement for the Soldier’s grade, specialty and eligibility for the tour. All Soldiers are still eligible for worldwide assignment.
