Other Info

Stay off the Chena River!!! This is a fast moving river very unpredictable.  This winter was mild compared to the past, the river is already melting in areas please be cautious!

Dental- go to www.tricaredentalprogram.com click on enrollee, “find a dentist tab”.  Use one of the preferred dentist listed.  Not using one of the listed dentists can cause you to pay more for treatment.  If your dentist isn’t listed it doesn’t mean they cannot bill United Concordia.  They can and will but United Concordia will only pay a certain amount.  With Dentist listed on the site…they have agreed to charge a certain $$ amount and of course you pay the remaining balance.  With others that are not listed on the site…they are not in agreement with United Concordia and can charge you way over the amount…. United Concordia will pay their part but you can still be stuck paying $100-$1000 more.

FAC Volunteers Needed

February 2, 2010

Good Morning,

ACS will be conducting a Family Assistance Center (FAC) exercise on February 17, 2010.  It is currently scheduled to begin between 0800-1100, with After Action Review at 1330.  ACS will call all role players when the FAC has been activated.  All agencies/FRSA’s on post will be participating and have a role in this exercise.  ACS is asking for volunteers who would like to participate in the exercise to contact ACS @ 353-4332.  Volunteers are not required to be available the entire time, you will need to leave a good contact number so that you can be reached when the exercise begins.  Child Care is available and will be paid for by ACS (registration for child care is required before Feb.17th).

Reason for this exercise is to understand the Family Assistance Centers purpose.  What FAC can provide and review roles of key agencies.  When the Strykers were extended in 2007 it was a mess, so ACS has decided to conduct this exercise yearly so that we can be better prepared.

The next IPR will be held on February 10, 2010 @1330 (Walk Thru of the exercise etc)

FRG’s please share with families so we can get as many volunteers needed for this exercise.

Have a wonderful day!!!
