Veterans hold a special place in our hearts and thoughts. They have put their lives on the line to defend our freedom and the American way of life. The Designated Provider organizations of the US Family Health Plan Alliance are honored to provide high-quality health care to veterans and their families and the families of active duty service members. Providing health care to veterans and their families is a sacred responsibility that we take very seriously. On this Veterans Day, we celebrate all of the men and women who have served in our armed forces and remember all of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.

Retired Navy Commander David Edwards Served in Atlantic and Pacific Theaters in World War II
At 103 years old, Commander David Edwards, US Navy (retired), is the oldest US Family Health Plan member in the Pacific Northwest. A World War II veteran and longtime reservist, Edwards now lives as a retiree in Seattle, Washington, in the house he and his family built from scratch.
As a student at the University of Washington before World War II, Edwards participated in the U.S. Navy ROTC program. Commissioned as an ensign, the Navy contacted him prior to America’s involvement in the war, and he spent the next year practicing minesweeping in the region. Read more

This week, on National Day of the Deployed, the US Family Health Plan Alliance celebrates the brave men and women in our Armed Forces who are currently deployed and all those who have served abroad at some point in their service.
Family readiness is a critical component of the military medical readiness mission. Active-duty military members have earned the right to peace of mind, knowing their families are well taken care of back at home.
As a trusted provider of military healthcare, we are committed to providing our members with the highest quality of care. When active duty military families and retirees enroll with one of the six providers within the US Family Health Plan Alliance, they become part of our family. Our members can say with complete confidence that we always have their backs.
So whether active-duty member families are deployed in the next city, state, country or continent – down the street or thousands of miles away – the last thing they have to be concerned about is whether their loved ones have access to the care they need, when they need it.
We pledge to continue delivering top-rated health care with the highest levels of patient satisfaction to our members across the country. We cannot thank you and your families enough for your service and sacrifices.

Nurses are at the frontline of patient care and as we celebrate National Nurses Week– timed to coincide with Florence Nightingale’s birthday. The member organizations of TRICARE’s US Family Health Plan program want to recognize and commend everything nurses do, day in and day out, to ensure patients receive the highest level of care possible.
As part of our leadership in promoting the patient-centered medical home concept, US Family Health Plan member organizations were among the first TRICARE providers to offer a 24-hour nurse help hotline, giving members around-the-clock access to nurses and primary care doctors. Through the hotline, US Family Health Plan members have access to general health information, advice on the use of emergency services, guidance about the appropriate level of care for their medical condition, and assistance in scheduling appointments.
The US Family Health Plan Alliance and the six health plans thank all nurses for their service and tireless dedication to patient care. We could not serve our members without them.

As Spring begins, US Family Health Plan members looking to sustain their New Year’s health and wellness resolutions should focus on preventative health care. The six member organizations of the US Family Health Plan place a high priority on providing their patients with quality health care and educating them about how preventive care can help them stay healthy all year long. Examples of preventive care include:
Annual Exams: Schedule your annual exams in the beginning of the year, monitor chronic conditions and discuss any recent changes in your health with your doctor.1
Eat Nourishing Foods: Eating nutritious foods – including fruits, vegetables and healthy protein – can help prevent illnesses, such as heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, and osteoporosis.2
Move Every Day: Exercise boosts your mood, gives you energy and improves sleep. Find ways to add in movement throughout your day.3
Maintain Your Brain: Keep your mind active with challenging activities like crossword or jigsaw puzzles – they’ve been shown to boost brain productivity and prevent memory loss.4
Socialize: Socializing regularly can help reduce stress and anxiety. Try scheduling one social activity a week—perhaps join a book club or sign up for a class at your local recreation center.5
Set Goals: Write down your health goals to keep them at the forefront of your mind.6
The US Family Health Plans’ preventive health care initiatives—including disease and complex care management programs and a patient-centered medical home concept that includes in-home patient monitoring—keep members active in lifestyle programs and invested in their health and wellness. For additional tips on preventative measures, contact your primary care provider.

Mary Jones (left) with her health coach Courtney Nelson
In 2018, Johns Hopkins US Family Health Plan member Mary Jones received frightening counsel from her doctor: If she didn’t lose weight, she would die. Mary, a diabetes patient, had been trying unsuccessfully to lose weight on her own for years. A few days after receiving this scary news, Jones received a call from Courtney Nelson, a Johns Hopkins US Family Health Plan health coach. Jones saw Nelson’s call as the answer to her prayers. “She was an angel that God sent to help me out,” said Jones, who is now much healthier at nearly 50 pounds lighter than when she received that first phone call.
