Then, how do I get reimbursed from Tricare?

If yes, then you can file your claims online.

  1. Fill out the TRICARE Claim Form. Download the Patient's Request for Medical Payment (DD Form 2642).
  2. Include a Copy of the Provider's Bill.
  3. Submit the Claim.
  4. Check the Status of Your Claims.

Subsequently, question is, what is timely filing for Tricare claims? A: TRICARE For Life requires that all claims for benefits must be filed with the appropriate TRICARE contractor no later than one year after the date the services were provided or one year from the date of discharge for an inpatient admission for facility charges billed by the facility.

Also, does Tricare pay back pay?

If TRICARE pays first and then discovers you had other health insurance, TRICARE will take back any payments made. They will only reprocess your claim after your other health insurance does.

How do I check the status of my Tricare claim?

In order to view status information, the National Provider Identifier (NPI) on your www.tricare-west.com account must match the billing NPI on the claim. If you do not have a www.tricare-west.com account, use the automated self-service tools at 1-844-866-WEST (1-844-866-9378).
