    Tricare/Not Tricare?

    Advertisements
    Who do I call with questions about a bill I received? On the TriWest website it says they are no longer serving TriCare patients and now I'm really confused. It gave me a number to United Healthcare I think? But when I called the lab who billed me they still referred to my insurance as TriCare, so I'm lost.

    I'm even more lost at the fact that I received such a huge bill for required pregnancy screenings, when I was under the impression that everything except a small amount of your hospital stay is supposed to be covered.

    Yay for insurance?

    It's still Tricare. They just changed their contract from using the company triwest to now using UHC. It will depend on the date you received services to know who should have covered it.

    It's a big mess right now with the switch over.

    Thanks!

    I got it figured out, weird that it's still called TriCare but goes through a different company. Definitely a mess

    Glad you got it figured out!

    I know it's confusing, I didn't even realize triwest was like a ...business or whatever I thought it was like created for the military and run by the government or something like that....I don't know
