Areas of Responsibility:
Every patient that is admitted or discharged from Womack Army Medical Center must go through the Admissions & Dispositions Office. Upon admission the patient must present a valid Military Identification Card to verify eligibility for Military Healthcare. At this time the patient’s demographics will be updated in the Composite Healthcare System (CHCS) to ensure the facility has the most current information. If the patient has Other Health Insurance (OHI), please provide this information to the Admission Clerk and complete a Third Party Collection Program Record of Other Health Insurance, DD form 2569. Patients will be asked for their Advance Directive; if none is available, information on how to obtain one will be given.

CHCS Registration
All military treatment facilities use the Composite Health Care System (CHCS) to automate the administrative functions necessary to provide your health care. After updating DEERS and Tricare, it is necessary to be registered in the military treatment facility where the patient will be receiving their routine health care. This can be accomplished in the Registration Office at your servicing Clinic.
