TRICARE & VA

DoD policy encourages VA participation in TRICARE networks. VA medical facilities must negotiate rates directly with the Managed Care Support Contractors for the treatment of TRICARE beneficiaries. VA medical facilities are subject to the same utilization management and quality assurance requirements applicable to other network providers.

Generally, TRICARE benefits may be used if the VA medical facility is a participating provider in the TRICARE network. For specific eligibility questions, beneficiaries should contact their local TRICARE Service Center or VA facility.
