Late and No Show Policy
As an appointment-based clinic, it is imperative that our customers and clinic staff establish a cooperative partnership to adhere to appointment times. All clinics in the Department of Family Medicine will make every effort to see our patients in compliance with TRICARE standards.
We strongly encourage patients to arrive 10 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment time. This allows for completion of the nursing intake and time for your appointment. Patients who arrive more than 10 minutes late may be asked to reschedule.
If you cannot make your scheduled appointment, please reschedule by calling the cancellation line, 907-APPT (2778). This will aid in timely patient flow, help decrease patient wait times, and allow other patients to book appointments.
Read the policy on Missed, Late or Wrong Day Appointments.
No Show Policy
In order to provide the highest accessibility to our patients, we request patients call 907-APPT (2778) to cancel appointments rather than "no show". Your unused, canceled appointment may be used for another patient to gain access to care. Units will be notified of beneficiaries who demonstrate a pattern of failing to cancel appointments in a timely manner.
