Haha so I've heard! Thanks for the tip. We probably won't have any choice but to live on base though, unfortunately.

You do, but they take it all for your rent. I have friends that live on base and don't even see their BAH. We live in town and our BAH covers our mortgage and most of our bills.

Agreed!!! I HATE going to the clinic on base. They do not care about the families at all. I'd much rather see a doctor in town, but we're prime

Yeah, they lose all their BAH and the housing community has just decided, now they have to pay their own electric bills. Before, the BAH covered it all except cable/internet/phone.
Our BAH out in town covers our mortgage payment and most of the utilities. But, we're also a higher rank than they are.

But no matter what if we stay within rh budget allowed we will still have to pay 15 dollars because they charge us 2 dollars and some odd for... Ugh can't remember.. Lame.

Heathen had the same pedi most of her life. Just changed in January. I loved her. We haven't met with the new doc yet. She doesn't have a checkup until November.
My PCM has changed 5 times in 12 months.

I was seen off post for ds1 pregnancy I enjoyed it. Wasn't bad. Waited ours to been seen. But liked it. Had ds2 on post and loved it. I love my OB I saw her evertime I went I just asked to see her and my c/s went amazing!! The clinic is not too bad they are doing colors now. Like teams.. So your with the same dr nurses and not just random people. I don't go there often I'm hardly sick and so far ds1 is hardly sick ds2 is only 2 months and the few times he's been its been great.

Is it because they did away with tri west or whatever it was called? So we lost a lot of non military workers at the clinic? Idk who my PCM is. Last time he was evil but I know its changed since.

No idea about the tri-west thing, as we're tri-north I believe. My PCM has always changed after I've been seen for something. It's ridiculous.
I guess I'm old fashioned with wanting to see the same doctor EVERY TIME I go in. Heathen's pedi remembered her every visit. She's a relatively healthy kid and doesn't need sick visits, just check ups. But her doc remembered her and would remember the visit the previous year.
