Department of Defense and Military Treatment Facilities

As Americans, we owe our nation’s safety, security and freedom to the brave men and women who serve in the United States armed forces. To carry out their mission, they need to be in good health, and ensuring their health and well-being is a job that falls upon highly skilled physicians and other medical professionals in both the military and private sector.
Through the Department of Defense, the Military Health System provides accessible health care services for members of the U.S. armed forces on military bases throughout the country.

Each day, service members put their lives on the line to defend and protect our country, but they should never have to put their healthcare on the line.
