If you haven’t accessed your TRICARE Online (TOL) account in a while, you may want to check it out. TRICARE Online now offers a new (and surely much requested) feature. You can now view your expanded personal health data online. What exactly does expanded personal health data mean? This means that in addition to viewing and printing your demographic information, allergy, and medication profiles; you can now view and print your lab results, patient history, diagnoses, and provider visits.
These new features are part of the expanding current Blue Button capability already available on TRICARE Online. In order to access these features you will need to login with either your CAC Card, DOD Self Service Logon or MHS iAS logon. If you do not have any of these logon’s, information on how to obtain a logon can be accessed through the TRICARE Online website.
If you are not familiar with TRICARE Online, TRICARE Online provides TRICARE beneficiaries access to available healthcare services and information through a secure portal for themselves and authorized family members. TRICARE Online users who receive their care at a military treatment facility can view, schedule, and cancel appointments, place prescription refills, correspond with their healthcare provider group, and view their personal health data as described above.
