Dear _________:
TRICARE coverage of abortion services is specifically limited by federal statute. As implemented by the Department of Defense, TRICARE coverage of abortion services is limited to when:
•  The life of the mother is at risk if the fetus is carried to term -- based upon certification from the attending physician that the patient suffers/suffered a condition that endangered her life if the fetus were carried to term; or
•  The pregnancy is the result of an act of rape or incest -- as documented in the patient’s medical record (effective January 2, 2013).
This means TRICARE won’t cost-share on abortions performed for reasons other than those listed above. Since initial review of your claim(s) gave no indication that this abortion met the conditions for coverage, TRICARE denied the claim.
If you believe you do qualify under one of the exceptions, you may request a Reconsideration of the denial decision by submitting a written Reconsideration request to this office within 90 calendar days of the date of this notice. Your request must include a copy of this notice, a statement outlining why you disagree with the decision, and any additional information/documentation from your physician which will support your position.
If you have any questions concerning the TRICARE abortion policy, please contact (Contractor Name and Address).
Sincerely,
- END -
