Urgent Care News
17 July, 2015
In June, the U.S. Senate passed legislation authorizing funding for the Department of Defense for 2016. Included in that bill is a provision that would allow TRICARE beneficiaries to access up to four urgent care visits without first needing to obtain pre-authorization for those visits.
The House version of the Defense authorization bill does not include this language. A committee of select Senate and House lawmakers has been convened to iron out the differences between the two bills. UCAOA strongly supports the Senate bill language easing pre-authorization requirements and needs your help to make sure that it is retained during negotiations. For the rest of the call to action, visit the UCAOA.
