TRICARE West for Providers

News and Updates

  1. Effective Feb. 1, 2020, we are limiting the number of locations we'll list for individual providers in our Network Provider Directory to five. This change will help reduce the risk of beneficiaries being appointed to incorrect provider offices. 

  2. We are holding new home health agency claims as we await TRICARE's Home Health Value-Based Purchasing Demonstration and Patient-Driven Groupings Model pricing.  

  3. As of Jan. 1, 2020, TRICARE covers annual 3-D mammography screenings through its provisional coverage program. Previously, TRICARE only covered 3-D mammograms for diagnostic purposes. Because this is a provisional benefit, prior authorization is required regardless of TRICARE plan type.
