Project Announcement: Termination of the Audit of Payments for TRICARE Urgent Care Benefits (Project No. D2018-D000AW-0140.000)

Further, the Defense Health Agency informed the audit team that after June 30, 2018, the TRICARE claims processor that processed all claims prior to January 1, 2018, was not contractually obligated to provide explanations of why specific urgent care charges were paid.
