TRICARE Referral Delays
Please be advised United Healthcare (1-877-988-9378) is experiencing higher than anticipated call volumes and referral inquiries from patients throughout the TRICARE western region. United staff are working hard to process referral authorizations and answer questions as quickly and accurately as possible. If you have questions or concerns regarding a civilian healthcare referral that you have been unable to resolve by phone, please visit the 673 Medical Group's TRICARE Service Center for assistance. It is located on the 2nd floor of the JBER Hospital near the Moose entrance, and is open 0730-1630 Mon-Fri. Thank you for your patience.
It's that time of year again! We recommend all children receive their well child exams, school physicals, and sports physicals from their assigned clinic team at JBER PediatricClinic or Family Health Clinic. Click here to see the flyer.
All service members who ride motorcycles on or off base and civilians required to ride motorcycles for their jobs on JBER must complete an approved motorcycle safety (MSF) course.
Annual motorcycle rider briefings will be at the JBER-Richardson theater April 9 at 10 a.m., and the JBER-Elmendorf theater April 10 at 10 a.m.
Contact a unit or command safety representative for more information on scheduling MSF training, or call 552-5035.
It has been brought to our attention that users are experiencing issues with Facebook not displaying correctly. This is due to Facebook defaulting to secure browsing which is not supported on Air Force networks. Attached are procedures to disable secure browsing from a PC/laptop or mobile devices. If applying fix action using a PC/laptop, it must be done from a
non-Air Force system. Also, you may still experience display issues until you log in.
**NOTE** This fix action is optional for personnel that had previously set their Facebook to use Secure Browsing. By disabling this feature you will be set to be unsecure on local public domains(i.e. Starbucks, Wi-Fi hot spots, etc.). This means that if you are not on a private network at home or any Air Force Networked computer/ laptop then you will be more vulnerable to hackers accessing your login information. The 673rd Communications Squadron is not responsible for personnel's security off of the Air Force Network. User discretion is advised.

Your pharmacy needs you!
The 673d Medical Group Pharmacy seeks volunteers to help provide outstanding customer service to our beneficiaries. Volunteers are critical team members of pharmacies across the Air Force. As a pharmacy volunteer, you can help perform many valuable tasks, such as bagging, shelving, or handing out medication to our retired and active duty Soldiers and Airmen, and their families. For many people that receive care at the 673d Medical Group, the pharmacy is the last stop. As a volunteer, you can help make their visit to the pharmacy a great one! If you are interested, please contact Captain Christina McQuaide in the pharmacy at (907) 580-6807. You can also email Captain McQuaide at email@example.com. All 673d Medical Group volunteers are sponsored by the American Red Cross. Thank you!

I-Sportsman will replace USARTRAK effective 1 April 2012.
JBER's current recreational access system, USARTRAK, will be replaced with I-Sportsman effective 1 April 2012. This new recreational access system consolidates user requirements for the Joint Base. Recreational users can access I-Sportsman, register and print a permit from their residence or go to either the Boniface Gate Visitor Center or the Arctic Valley Visitor
Center and use the self-help kiosk. You are also able to sign in and out via cell phone with a web browser. This permit is currently free to all individuals eligible to recreate on JBER. Having an I-Sportsman's recreational permit is a pre-condition for recreating on JBER. Recreational
permit violations may result in the loss of recreational access privileges on JBER. To obtain a permit, visit www.jber.isportsman.net
or call 855-703-9176 to register.
The I-Sportsman recreation pass alone does not give you access to JBER. To gain access to JBER you will need to have your I-Sportsman recreation pass and stop at either Visitor control center to be vetted onto the installation if you do not have base access. Individuals failing the vetting process will not be allowed on JBER. If you have questions on installation access requirements, see the Security Forces personnel at the Visitor's Centers or call 552-4029.
