Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

  • Testing copayment waiver: Retroactive to March 18, 2020, TRICARE will waive copayments/cost-shares for medically necessary COVID-19 diagnostic and antibody testing and related services, and office visits, urgent care or emergency room visits during which tests are ordered or administered. COVID-19 diagnostic and antibody tests must meet Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) criteria in order to be eligible for the cost-share and copayment waivers.
  • Telemedicine copayment waiver: TRICARE is waiving copayments and cost-shares for covered audio-only or audio/video telemedicine rendered by network providers on or after May 12, 2020. This waiver applies to covered in-network telehealth services, not just services related to COVID-19. Beneficiaries who seek telehealth from non-network providers are liable for their regular copayment or cost-share. TRICARE Prime beneficiaries who seek care from specialists without an approved referral when required are subject to Point of Service fees.

Providers are expected to refund cost-sharing amounts to beneficiaries as appropriate.
