TRICARE Launches Philippine Demonstration in 2013

Posted on: October 10th, 2012 by admin No Comments

TRICARE Management Activity
October 09, 2012

Starting Jan. 1, 2013 TRICARE is launching a demonstration project in designated areas of the Philippines to provide beneficiaries access to high-quality health care from approved demonstration providers. TRICARE Standard beneficiaries who live in the Philippines and receive care in the designated demonstration areas may participate.

All beneficiaries who live in the Philippines and who’ve filed a claim in the last two years will be notified by letter at least 60 days prior to the start of health care delivery under the Philippine Demonstration. To have TRICARE cost share on their claims, beneficiaries getting care in demonstration areas must see an approved provider.  If they elect not to participate in the demonstration by seeing a provider not on the approved provider list when they receive care in designated demonstration areas, TRICARE will not cost share on their claim.

One of the main benefits of the TRICARE Philippine Demonstration is approved providers will file claims on behalf of the beneficiary. The beneficiary then receives an explanation of benefits (EOB), which informs them of their patient liability, appropriate cost shares and deductibles.

Beneficiaries who live in the Philippines and want to participate in the demonstration must provide their physical address to the approved provider to submit claims on their behalf. Post office boxes and retirement activity office boxes are not acceptable.

TRICARE is committed to providing high-quality care to eligible TRICARE Standard beneficiaries residing in the Philippines while effectively managing health care costs. Beneficiaries looking for more information on the Philippine Demonstration can visit www.tricare.mil/Philippines or www.tricare-overseas.com/Beneficiary_PhilippineDemonstration_home.htm. The approved provider list will be posted on the TRICARE Overseas Program contractor’s website at least 60 days prior to the start date of the demonstration, www.tricare-overseas.com.

US Navy Destroyer Barry

Posted on: September 17th, 2012 by admin No Comments

Like so much of America, the Navy’s Arleigh Burke destroyers are at retirement age but still facing another couple decades of hard work and making do.

The responsibility for doubling the life expectancy of these saltwater steel ships from 20 to 40 years, while achieving every mission, falls to many people. But in the end — it falls to the crew.

When I got the call to join the USS Barry for a ride off the Atlantic seaboard last week, I expected to meet a staff burdened by duty and unhappy with how the country is dumping money into new technology on trouble-ridden ships.

Instead I met a crew of sailors who worked 12 to 16 hour days without complaint.

I’ve never seen a group of people work so hard to make the most of what they had. The Barry seemed to belong to them and come what may, they would not fail her.

I’m an Army veteran, not a sailor, but I’ll be damned if by the time we pulled back into port, I didn’t have a lot more respect for the Navy.
