Copayments Waived for COVID-19 Testing and Related Services
Monday, April 13, 2020
Retroactive to March 18, 2020, TRICARE will waive copayments/cost-shares for COVID-19 testing and related services, and office visits, urgent care or emergency room visits (to include telemedicine) during which tests are ordered or administered. COVID-19 diagnostic tests must meet Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) criteria in order to be eligible for the cost-share and copayment waivers.
Providers are expected to refund cost-sharing amounts to beneficiaries as appropriate. Find current cost details on our Copayment and Cost-Share Information pages.
