Are you a TRICARE Beneficiary? If so, do you have Other Health Insurance (OHI) than TRICARE?
As part of the Third Party Collection Program, we will bill your insurance carrier for medical services rendered in our facilities at no cost to you. Funds collected from your Other Health Insurance
(OHI) will help offset the cost of the taxpayer’s dollars and can help the facilities improve their delivery of healthcare. If you have OHI, please fill out form DD 2569, attach a copy of your insurance card (front & back), and email both to firstname.lastname@example.org
OR drop it off in our office at Building 3700, 4th
floor. This form must be updated annually.
Please be aware, medical services rendered in one of our overseas facilities are not covered by Medicare or Medicaid even though they are United States Military Treatment Facilities. Please contact our customer service team for further information regarding our medical billing services.
Are you wondering why you haven't been billed for services?
We continue to have a significant volume of returned mail. Most returned mail comes back without a forwarding address. In these cases, the only way for the accounts to be closed is if they are transferred for payroll deduction or administrative offset.
Please send an email with your new billing address to the RHCE UBO at email@example.com
