To our patients with Tricare Standard Insurance:
We are happy to file your claims directly to Tricare for you. We do not participate with Tricare, and therefore, we do not accept assignment of any benefits available to you. Tricare is a government sponsored insurance program. All checks for benefits will be paid directly to you. We will receive an explanation of benefits for what Tricare allows for participating providers. As non-participating providers, the law allows us to charge 115% of the allowed amount. This is the amount you will be asked to pay. This may be exactly 15% more than you receive from Tricare, or it may be more if Tricare reduces their payment to you for cost share amounts, deductibles, or copays.
For example, if we bill Tricare for $150.00 and Tricare allows $100.00, you will be responsible for 115% of $100.00 or $115.00. Tricare may pay some portion of the $100.00 but they will not pay any portion of the $15.00.
If you have questions or need further explanation, please call and ask to speak to the billing administrator.
