9/30/2011 - MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. -- The Women's Health Clinic will close tomorrow as part of 2012 fiscal constraints.

"Primary women's health care will be rolled into Family Health," said Maj. Phillip Douglas, 42nd Medical Group practice manager. "If specialty care is needed, patients will be referred to civilian TRICARE-network healthcare providers."

Active-duty women must contact their primary care manager for annual exams, Pap test and health concerns.

Nonactive-duty women can see their primary care manager or seek care off base. Nonactive-duty women are authorized an annual Pap test at a TRICARE-network gynecologist office without a referral. For additional appointments they must contact their primary care manager for a referral.

For a listing of current gynecology groups, visit www.humana-military.com or call 1-800-444-5445.

"We will strive to continue to meet our beneficiary population's healthcare needs, whether by in-house clinics or with our TRICARE network partners," Douglas said.

For information, contact Douglas at 953-7114.
