DOD/DODOASHA RIN: 0720-AA50 Publication ID: Spring 2011 
Title: Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Uniformed Services (CHAMPUS); Double Coverage 
Abstract: This rule clarifies our double coverage policy for non-institutional claims for beneficiaries with primary health insurance. TRICARE network, non-network but participating, and non-participating providers are all reimbursed differently under current procedures. This has had the unintended effect of discouraging TRICARE network participation since non-network but participating providers receive the most favorable treatment with respect to double coverage calculations. The Department proposed to revise double coverage reimbursement calculations by reimbursing all providers up to 100 percent of the CHAMPUS Maximum Allowable Charge after the primary health insurance has paid or 115 percent for non-participating providers.
