Who we serve

Serving active duty and beyond.
Our goal is to remove the barriers that delay health care access for military families. If you are on active duty at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, we understand that testing and approval requirements can impact deployment.

That's why we've provided expedited access to specialty care by supplementing the services available on base. We streamline the process, fast-track authorizations, and obtain same-day appointments when necessary.

Because if you're serving our nation, you should concentrate on getting well, not worrying about paperwork. That's why our process is simple: just call us and we'll handle the rest! Our navigators are available daily to master the details.

Please note: we regularly work with Tricare and the VA.

At the ready.
Our navigators have long-standing ties with Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, and we understand the needs and concerns of those who serve.

• Locating and securing appointments and referral services, including specialist care
