A full spectrum of adult and pediatric dermatology services are available for active duty service members and their families, by PCM referral only. Services include, but aren’t limited to, skin cancer screening and management, care of atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, acne, rosacea, allergic contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, cutaneous manifestations of connective tissue disease, vitiligo, warts, fungal and bacterial skin infections, and hidradenitis suppurativa. Narrow-band UVB therapy, photodynamic therapy, and allergy patch testing may be available for some patients.
Some procedures and services provided by the dermatology clinic are considered elective, semi-elective, or cosmetic, and are done only on a space-available basis. Appointment availability to provide dermatologic care for medically necessary and medically indicated treatments and care will take precedence over appointment availability for elective or cosmetic procedures. Accordingly, there’s no guarantee that elective or cosmetic services will be available at any given time, or that they will continue to be available in the future, even if a patient has had access in the past. All these procedures will be booked only by the dermatology clinic at the discretion of the dermatologist based on availability of time, resources, type of service being requested, and TRICARE policy.
