Exchange wellness services help military families maintain health

  • Published

Maintaining a healthy body is essential for the military community. The Army & Air Force Exchange Service helps them achieve their health goals with a wide range of wellness services.  

The Exchange’s BE FIT program takes a holistic approach to health and wellness, including expanding wellness services available on installations. Airmen, Guardians, retirees, family members, disabled veterans and civilian employees can find durable medical equipment (such as braces, crutches, CPAP supplies and more), cryotherapy, optometry offices and dental services at Exchange locations. Chiropractic care, which launched in 2022, is the latest medical service in the Exchange’s portfolio of health and wellness offerings.

“Military members and their families have busy schedules, which can often make it difficult to maintain regular wellness appointments,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Osby, Exchange senior enlisted adviser. “The Exchange makes access easy and convenient by bringing these services onto the installation.”

Exchange wellness services include:

•           Optical and optometry clinics in 141 locations worldwide.

•           Durable medical equipment shops in 31 locations (five additional locations projected to open in 2022).

•           Dental offices in 11 locations (12 additional locations forecasted to open 2022).

•           Cryotherapy at two locations.

•           Chiropractic clinics at two locations (eight new locations anticipated to open in 2022). 

Exchange wellness locations accept TRICARE and most insurances, when applicable.
