What is Travis AFB accomplishing with CareStarter?


For Families

Travis AFB has partnered with CareStarter to improve the experience of military members and families who have special health care needs. The pilot objectives aim to improve family readiness for the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) members by standardizing processes and highlighting the many available care resource providers within their community.

We are doing our best to get a CareMap to every inbound family before they arrive on Travis AFB.


For Providers

By offering their services, area resource providers are actively meeting community need and bringing health and resilience to their communities. Our goal is to highlight those services so that incoming families have up-to-date information about what resources are available to them when they arrive at Travis Air Force Base. When a military family receives their travel determination, a family is notified of the area resources that are most relevant to their special care family member.
