Active duty service members mainly receive their primary care at military hospitals and clinics. If stationed in a remote location, active duty service members may receive primary care with a civilian network provider. If you are injured on active duty, there are additional programs and resources as well as special benefits like respite care for primary caregivers of injured service members. National Guard and Reserve members who are on active duty for more than 30 days receive the same benefits as an active-duty service member. The Extended Care Health Option (ECHO) is a suite of benefits available to active-duty family members with qualifying mental or physical disabilities.
