WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Medical group officials at Sheppard Air Force Base took a tour of a Wichita Falls urgent care clinic Tuesday afternoon. 

The Community Med Urgent Care clinic is opening opportunities in health care for military members and their families. 

CMUC is an in-network TRICARE provider. 

TRICARE is the health care program for military members, their dependents, and retired military members. 

SAFB officials said this in-network status is something that is going to benefit the 21,000 people with TRICARE in the Wichita Falls area. 

"It's a peace of mind thing for our beneficiary population. It will just make it very very easy for their care to get reimbursed. A lot of less steps for them to go through. We have a population who already has other stressors that the civilian community doesn't have. So, anything that we can take off their plate is a good thing," Lieutenant Colonel Amy E. Russo, Medical Service Core Officer said. 

Officials at SAFB said the tour of the clinic helps build the relationship with health care providers and other businesses within the city. 

There are other TRICARE providers in the Wichita Falls area, but they are out-of-network providers.
