TRICARE Policy Manual 6010.60-M, April 1, 2015
Administration
Chapter 1
Section 1.3
Court-Ordered Care
Issue Date:  December 5, 1984
Authority:  32 CFR 199.4(g)(22)
Revision:  
1.0  DESCRIPTION
Court-ordered care is medical service, including inpatient admissions, that a court of law orders or directs a party in a legal proceeding to obtain.
2.0  POLICY
The fact that medical services are ordered by a court does not determine the coverage of those medical services. Benefits will be paid only if the service is to diagnose or treat a covered condition, if the service is at the appropriate level of care to treat the condition, and if the beneficiary (or the beneficiary’s family) has a legal obligation to pay for the service.
