TRICARE Waives Copayments for COVID-19 Tests on or After March 18

Posted on Apr 15, 2020 06:58 pm

The military’s primary provider of health insurance for service members, veterans and dependents announced on Wednesday that it will waive copayments for COVID-19 testing and associated visits to testing.

“This may apply to you if you paid any copayments for certain testing and the resulting office visits with a TRICARE network or non-network provider. The test must be one approved, cleared, or authorized by the Food and Drug Administration to detect SARS-CoV-2 or diagnose COVID-19,” according to the TRICARE update.

In order to apply for a reimbursement, patients must file a factual appeal.
