JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas –
The San Antonio Market has launched a text messaging service to keep TRICARE beneficiaries informed about their local military healthcare system.
Once they opt in on their phone or tablet, beneficiaries will receive up to 10 text messages per month on topics such as clinic hours of operation, health fairs, vaccine opportunities, pharmacy/lab services, access to care tips and more.
“This new program is part of our continued commitment to transparency and access,” said Air Force Brig. Gen. Jeannine Ryder, director, San Antonio Market, and commander, 59th Medical Wing. “Our aim is to offer our patients timely, relevant information about their healthcare system in a user-friendly, convenient way.”
