To ensure that personnel and family get free, comprehensive, high quality health care through regular disbursement of funds and materials to the Health Care providers and monitoring the standards of health care delivery regularly.
At the primary care level, the DHML currently operates 138 health care facilities spread over the entire country. Those wishing to take advantage of DHML services must enroll so that adequate professional staffing and resources are available in both military and supporting facilities. Priority for treatment in military hospitals and clinics will be given to participants enrolled in DHML.
Another key feature of DHML is that all who enroll will be assigned a Primary Care Provider (PCP). A Primary Care Provider is a health care professional or medical establishment who patients see first for their health care needs. Primary Care Providers will be supported by military and civilian medical specialists to whom patients will be referred if they need specialty care.
