Eligibility for Care
The ID card is used to validate eligibility when you arrive in the Admission and Disposition office. All children aged ten and older, must possess a valid ID card and present at the time of registration. There are various circumstances which will require eligible children under the age of 10 to possess an ID card. You may contact the ID card section on Fort Sam Houston to find out the specifics regarding your situation. Care will not be denied if patient does not have an ID card. You will be required to go to the Treasurer office (A&Dís office during afterhours) to complete a Temporary Authorization for Medical Care form. A copy will be kept in the Treasurerís office and you will be requested to return with a valid ID card within thirty days. However if a valid ID card is not presented a bill will be send to the patient or other health care insurance provider for any care rendered to a patient that is not eligible for care.
