Dear (Provider Name):
The Department of Defense, through Defense Health Agency (DHA), is responsible for appropriate cost containment for services provided to TRICARE beneficiaries. One particular area of concern has been the costs billed for prescription drugs. In an effort to establish a Uniformed Military Services drug benefit and claim processing requirement for all TRICARE eligibles, the Deputy Director, DHA, has determined that pharmacy claims submitted for services outside the United States (U.S.) must be reimbursed in accordance with the reimbursement formulas for TRICARE U.S. claims as established under the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
This letter notifies you that effective 60 days from date on this letter, (Date), overseas pharmacy claims submitted will be processed in accordance with the reimbursement formulas for TRICARE claims in the U.S. which are from a schedule of allowable charges based on the Average Wholesale Price (AWP) rates plus $3.00 administration fee. Should you have any questions regarding this requirement, please write me at (Contractor Mailing Address).
