How do I get my birth certificate?
LRMC does not issue birth certificates, but we do issue a report of live birth that the U.S. Consulate uses to issue a Report of Live Birth, or FS-240.
The FS-240 is valid in all U.S. States and Territories as the equivalent of a birth certificate. To obtain a copy, follow the instructions at the U.S. Department of State at: http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/abroad/events-and-records/birth/replace-or-amend-consular-report-of-birth-abroad.html
The American consulate is the only agency abroad that can issue an American Birth Certificate and Passport. However, your Regional Personnel Center can assist and must collect, verify and forward all requests to the American Consulate.
How can I obtain a copy of my medical records?
To request records by email from LRMC Medical Records Office, please download and complete DD Form 2870 which can be found at http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/forms/eforms/dd2870.pdf.

If you have a referral from a Host Nation Provider and would like to be seen at LRMC, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at DSN 590-4830/Commercial 06371-9464-4830.
For more background information, please see our release below:
"When the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan were busy, our focus was treating Wounded Warriors arriving at LRMC from theater," said Col. (Dr.) Brian Sonka, Chief of the Division of Surgery at LRMC. "Now that the flow of patients has thankfully slowed down from the Middle East, Landstuhl wants to allow greater access to care to our beneficiaries and the opportunity to keep our surgeons gainfully employed."
The surgical specialties at LRMC include orthopedic surgery, ophthalmology, general surgery, neurosurgery, spine surgery, plastic surgery, urology, obstetrics & gynecology, ear/nose/throat surgery, oral surgery, occupational and physical therapy.
“We want to capitalize on maintaining these skill sets and providing a high level of care to the retirees and DoD Civilians in the Kaiserslautern Military Community that support the Active Duty population and their families every day.”
The change is especially significant for DOD civilian employees and retirees whose German doctor refers them to a surgical specialist. In most cases, Dr. Sonka said that retirees and DoD Civilians can be seen at LRMC for surgical consultation unless the patient has a problem that requires a specialty or capability not available at LRMC. Other specialties such as dermatology, endocrinology, rheumatology and gastroenterology would be determined on a case-by-case basis.
How does this work? How do I access LRMC if I am seeing a Host Nation Provider?
If a retiree or DoD Civilian is seeing a Host Nation Provider for primary care and has a specialty care referral, they can either call the LRMC TRICARE Office at DSN 590-4830/Commercial 06371-9464-4830 and ask for Referral Management or they can bring their referral to the LRMC TRICARE Office in person in Bldg. 3744 (near the AAFES Gas Station) at LRMC.
The LRMC Referral Management team at the TRICARE Office will work with the clinics and/or surgeons at LRMC and facilitate the care if appropriate. The LRMC Referral Management team can take referrals in German as well. There is no need to have them translated before contacting the LRMC TRICARE Office.
