Summary of Changes: This change documents the process for contractors who collect enrollment fees through retired military pay allotments. Currently, contractors have individual agreements with Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) (and Public Health Service (PHS)/Coast Guard) for processing enrollment fee payments by allotment. Documenting the process in the Manuals eliminates the need for individual agreements; rather there will be one Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) and DFAS with contractor requirements documented in the manuals. The process outlined in the manual changes is essentially the same process that contractors are currently using to process allotment requests. This change is published in conjunction with Aug 2002 TOM Change 132.
