About OCMO

The Office of the Chief Medical Officer (OCMO) provides leadership and/or oversight for a range of quality assessment /quality improvement, patient safety, and population-based health management programs across the TRICARE Military Health System (MHS), affecting both the direct care and purchased care components of TRICARE. The OCMO provides medical consultative guidance for the TRICARE benefit appeals, development, validation and reimbursement process. It provides DoD level direction for a range of special programs affecting beneficiaries, particularly special needs beneficiaries and provides implementation guidance for the MHS Patient-Centered Medical Home initiative.

There are six divisions in OCMO: 1. Behavioral Health; 2. Clinical Quality; 3. Health Care Benefits & Risk Management; 4. Information Management; 5. Patient Safety; 6. Health Promotion & Disease Prevention; and 7. Patient-Centered Medical Home. The major areas of responsibility relating to each are listed within their respective sections.

The TMA Mission is to manage TRICARE, the Department’s medical and dental programs under which members from the uniformed services, their dependents, and other beneficiaries are entitled to DoD health care.

The OCMO Mission is to design and promote safe, evidence-based, quality healthcare, trusted by all we serve. In support of this mission OCMO strives to enhance the Strategic Goals of the MHS Quadruple Aim: Readiness, Population Health; Patient Experience; and responsibly Managing Medical Costs.

The TMA Vision is to have a world-class health care system that supports the military mission by fostering, protecting, sustaining, and restoring health.

The OCMO Vision is: We bring good health to lives.

“On October 1, 2013, the Department of Defense established the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to manage the activities of the Military Health System. These activities include those previously managed by TRICARE Management Activity (TMA), which was disestablished on the same date. During the next several months, all TMA websites will change to reflect the new DHA. We appreciate your patience during this transition."
