Copayments waived for some COVID-19 tests

FALLS CHURCH, Va. - Did you know you can ask to have Tricare copayments waived for certain COVID-19 testing and office visits related to the testing? This applies to tests and visits on or after March 18.

This may apply to you if you paid any copayments for certain testing and the resulting office visits with a Tricare network or non-network provider. The test must be one approved, cleared, or authorized by the Food and Drug Administration to detect SARS-CoV-2 or diagnose COVID-19. To apply for a reimbursement, file a factual appeal for reimbursement.
