My Military Health Records
You should keep copies of your medical documentation, records, and health care history information for your own reference.
- If you get most care at military hospitals or clinics, you’ll have a DoD electronic health record.
- If you retired or separated after Jan. 1, 2014, paper copies of your Service Treatment Records (STRs) were digitized following your retirement or separation from the Armed Forces. If your STRs don’t contain information classified as sensitive, they’ll be available via your Patient Portal, either MHS GENESIS or TRICARE Online (TOL). Note: You may access your historical health records on TOL until 1 October 2024. All new health records will be available on the MHS GENSIS Patient Portal.
- Civilian providers may keep paper records or use a private electronic health record system.
