MCSC Contract Management

Presently TRICARE Management Activity is conducting an Independent Government Cost Estimate (IGCE) to ascertain the impact of the usage of the MCP module by MCS Contractors in several regions. The IGCE should be complete mid-October 2000.

As found by the Government Accounting Office many regions are paying for appointment services from their MCS Contractors that they are not using. See the GAO Report:
Military Health Care: Factors Affecting Contractors' Ability to Schedule Appointments. HEHS-00-137. 12 pp. July 14, 2000

Please look at your operations to see the numbers of appointments retained in your facilities and those booked by the MCS Contractor. The TRICARE Management Activity is going to start monitoring the numbers of appointment of each.
