There are two ways to make appointments. You may book an appointment by doing one of the following:

  • (TOL) - TRICARE Online is a secure web portal designed to increase access to care for authorized TRICARE beneficiaries and increase access to information for designated TRICARE physicians and support staff. Visit to register.
  • Irwin Army Community Hospital Appointment Line - Call 785-239-DOCS (3627) or 1-888-239-DOCS (3627) Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Irwin Army Community Hospital is asking TRICARE beneficiaries who use IACH to help reduce patient "NO SHOWS".

Patients who neither keep nor cancel their scheduled appointments or who arrive late to their appointments are termed as "NO SHOWS".

In addition to costing the hospital money and resources, failing to cancel also may keep other Soldiers and Family Members from being able to use your appointment slot to receive needed care.

Patient "NO SHOWS" potentially can have a tremendous negative impact upon Medical Treatment Facilities. The potential effects can be: loss of medical staff including physicians, curtailing services, loss of productivity, and patients who need appointments cannot get an appointment.

To cancel an appointment, patients can call 785-239-DOCS (3627), leave a voicemail message at 785-239-8428, cancel their appointment during Irwin Army Community Hospital's automated appointment reminder service, or cancel on TRICARE online if the appointment was booked online.

TRICARE beneficiaries who have a medical appointment at Irwin Army Community Hospital or its outlying clinics should receive at least 72 hours prior to their appointment time a reminder telephone call at the contact number in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System reminding them of their appointment. An automated voice message machine reminds the patient of their appointment date and time when he or she picks up the phone or the system will leave a message for the beneficiary. The voice message asks the beneficiary to either confirm or cancel the appointment by pressing a key on their telephone before ending the call. It is very important that the beneficiary make a choice during the call. This enables IACH to optimize appointments that might otherwise go unused.

If you do not choose the right option or if you miss the reminder call, you can cancel by calling 785-239-DOCS (3627) Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. or leave a voicemail message at 785-239-8428. If the appointment was booked using TRICARE online, you can cancel at

Thank you for your help to reduce the number of missed appointments at IACH.
