DOD/DODOASHA RIN: 0720-AB44 Publication ID: Spring 2011 
Title: TRICARE: Unfortunate Sequelae From Noncovered Services in a Military Treatment Facility 
Abstract: The Department of Defense is publishing this rule to allow coverage for otherwise covered services and supplies required in the treatment of complications (unfortunate sequelae) resulting from a noncovered incident of treatment provided in a Military Treatment Facility (MTF), when the initial noncovered service has been authorized by the MTF Commander and the MTF is unable to provide the necessary treatment of the complications. This rule is necessary to protect TRICARE beneficiaries from incurring financial hardships due to the current regulatory restrictions that prohibit TRICARE coverage of treatment of the complications resulting from noncovered medical procedures, even when those procedures were conducted in a Department of Defense facility.
