A Minute of Your Time to Help us Increase the Quality of Your Care

 

The Third Party Collection Program (TPCP) is a congressionally mandated program that authorizes military treatment facilities to bill private health insurance plans for services provided here at Naval Health Clinic Corpus Christi.

 If you have other health insurance besides TRICARE or Medicare, all you must do is complete a DD Form 2569, Third Party Collection Program - Insurance Information, indicating private health insurance status. This form, updated annually, will be kept in your medical record. The information will be entered into our computer database systems and will be used to bill the insurance companies for all medical services received here.

TRICARE is allowed to keep the money recovered.  DoD instructions specify the money be used to increase the quality of care. Therefore, our facility has the discretion to spend money as required by priorities. We are able to track exactly how much is billed and how much is recovered. The money may be used for equipment and supplies, furniture, renovations to the facility and additional staff members.

For your convenience and to facilitate your access to care, download this form, print it, complete it, and bring it with you to your next appointment.
