Billing : Forms, Military Unique
Health Plan and Policy Billing GuidelinesThere are several health coverage policies and plans to which cost recovery programs can submit claims. Claim formats that are used in the Military Health System (MHS) are based on encounter services provided, payer requirements, and Service and National Capital Region Medical Directorate (NCR MD) billing policies. The U.S. Government may not collect more than the total charge of medical care from any one source or combination of sources. If total payment received exceeds the amount billed, the MTF must refund the overage to the payer. The table below contains claim format guidelines for each UBO Cost Recovery Program.
