TriCare / ECHO

Families stationed aboard MCAS Yuma live in the West Region for TRICARE coverage. United Health Care (UHC) is TRICARE West Regional Contractor. 

There no longer are Tricare Service Centers on installations. All interactions with UHC must now be done online or over the phone, this includes changing your Primary Care Manager (PCM).
