When a payment error is discovered during the claims review process, Health Net Federal Services, LLC is required to process a correction and recover any funds paid in error (recoupment). In certain cases, a recoupment letter is sent requesting a refund. If you receive a claims recoupment letter, follow the instructions as provided. Please note cash payments are not accepted. All recoupment payments must be made by check or money order.
TRICARE requires beneficiaries access individual Explanation of Benefits (EOBs) online. To do this, log in and click on “Summary TEOB.” If you would like paper copies of claim information, you can call customer service to request individual EOBs on a per-instance basis. You can also request ongoing monthly summary EOBs be sent to by mail.
TRICARE beneficiaries are instructed to receive all routine care, when possible, from network providers in their designated region prior to travel. If care is required when traveling, you must verify your plan’s requirements for obtaining a referral from your primary care manager and/or Health Net Federal Services, LLC (HNFS). Providers are encouraged to submit claims on your behalf to HNFS. However, you may need to pay up front for services and file a claim for reimbursement. Your TRICARE claims must be submitted to the region in which you reside in or are enrolled, even if you receive care in a different TRICARE region.
