    Tricare Standard Deductable Question

    When I gave birth I paid my provider $150 for myself and DD. For some reason tricare has decided neither of us met the deductible and I have now paid an additional $300. I have tried calling tricare twice but get the does not compute answer of but you haven't met the deductible yet. I am not sure what to do. Other than pull checks and receipts but who do I send that too? Is it the providers or tricare who are responsible for the refund? Tricare's answer to that question is "you haven't met the deductible".

    If you paid the $100 (E-4 and below) or $300 (E-5 and above), you hand in your receipts to the Tricare office at your MPF.
    That is what I would assume...

    To file a claim, you must complete and sign a TRICARE DoD/CHAMPUS Medical Claim—Patient’s Request for Medical Payment form (DD Form 2642), available at or your regional contractor’s Web site.
    Beneficiaries (age 18 and older), spouses, parents, or guardians may sign the initial claim form, but later forms (needed to process a claim) must be signed by the beneficiary (or parent or guardian if the patient is under age 18).
    Attach a readable copy of the provider’s itemized bill and include:
    • Patient’s name
    • Sponsor’s Social Security number (SSN) or Department of Defense Benefits Number (eligible former spouses should use their own SSNs, not the sponsor’s)
    • Provider’s name and address (if more than one provider’s name is on the bill, circle the name of the provider who performed the service)
    • Date, place, description, and charge of each service
    • Diagnosis (if the diagnosis is not on the bill, complete block 8a on the form)
