New TRICARE Online (TOL) enhancements now allow people to schedule text and email appointment reminders for all appointments, regardless of the booking mechanism. To set up an appointment reminder, just log in to TOL with a Common Access Card, Premium Department of Defense Self-Service logon, or Defense Finance and Accounting Service myPay logon and define up to three email addresses and mobile phone numbers. People will receive a confirmation message when booking the appointment, as well as a reminder up to 48-72 hours before the scheduled appointment time, and again, two hours before the scheduled appointment time.
