Patients seen by a BACH provider
Patients assigned to a BACH medical home may book appointments by calling the appointment line at 270.798.4677 or 931.431.4677, visiting www.tricareonline.com, or by emailing your care team using the Army Medicine Secure Email Messaging System.
To help care teams make preparations for your visit when calling the appointment line or sending a AMSMS message, please inform the team whether your child will attend a school in Kentucky or Tennessee, or another state during the 2018-19 school year. If you are leaving the Kentucky or Tennessee areas before school begins, please download the appropriate school form to take to your child’s appointment. You may download forms at the Blanchfield Army Community Hospital website at https://go.usa.gov/xQpbp
TRICARE Prime patients seen by a network provider
TRICARE Prime beneficiaries assigned to a network medical provider may schedule an appointment with their network primary care manager (PCM) for school or sports physicals or they may call for an appointment to attend the Saturday, August 4th School and Sports Physical clinic, using BACH’s appointment line at 270.798.4677 or 931.431.4677.
What should patients bring to the school and sports physical appointment?
To receive a school or sports physical, students must bring their immunization record (shot record) and the appropriate physical forms to the appointment. Parents are asked to complete school sports and physical forms provided by their school before their child’s appointment. Children are asked to wear shorts and a short sleeved shirt to facilitate the examination.
If other medical concerns arise during the school or sports physical examination, a follow-up appointment should be scheduled with your PCM in order to ensure proper time and attention is devoted to the medical need.
Routine physical exams are valid for one year and are required for the following students:
- Any child entering Christian County or Clarksville-Montgomery County schools for the first time
- Any student participating in school organized sports
- Any youth participating in Fort Campbell’s organized sport programs
- Any adolescent who enrolls in the 6th grade in Christian County or Fort Campbell Schools
- Any adolescent who is entering the 7th grade in Tennessee
If your child had a school or sports physical completed at one of BACH’s medical homes within the last
12 months and has had no medical changes, it is not necessary to receive another physical. Blanchfield Army Community Hospital medical home patients who do not need a new physical may contact their care team to have the required school forms completed. Paperwork may take up to three business days to complete.
Patients unable to attend a scheduled school or sports physical appointment Monday through Friday should call the BACH appointment line to cancel at least two hours prior to the appointment. To cancel a Saturday appointment, please call the appointment line any time before noon on the Friday before your scheduled appointment.
