PURPOSE: To collect information from Military Health System beneficiaries in order to determine their eligibility for coverage under the TRICARE Program; to issue payment upon establishment of eligibility; to determine that the service/supplies received are authorized by law; and to check or correct records with respect to your Medicare and/or Other Health Insurance (OHI) coverage.
