"On October 1, 2013, the Department of Defense established the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to manage the activities of the Military Health System. These activities include those previously managed by TRICARE Management Activity (TMA), which was disestablished on the same date. During the next several months, all TMA websites will change to reflect the new DHA. We appreciate your patience during this transition."

This section is updated with questions we get from you. Send questions or suggestions to UBO.Helpdesk@altarum.org, with the subject, "FAQs."

Q: What should I ask insurance companies when they send our office a denial of Non-Covered Charges?

A: You should contact the payer and ask for the reason(s) that the claim was denied and what information is necessary to correct the claim (make sure you document the conversation). In addition to reviewing on a claim by claim basis, review denials for trends for certain submissions. Talk with your utilization review team to get a sense as to what is impacting covered vs. non-covered claims, identify trends, and seek to proactively reduce and correct common mistakes.

Additional Q&As are available by webinar topic on the UBO Learning Center.
