Tricare Now Accepting Pediatric Concurrent Care
TRICARE NOW ACCEPTING PEDIATRIC CONCURRENT CARE.
Despite 2017 legislation allowing Tricare pediatric beneficiaries to begin receiving concurrent hospice care, the policy has not yet been fully implemented. Tricare will be issuing regulations in 2019 and until then Tricare now stands ready to approve claims waivers for any child enrolled in hospice care and simultaneously receiving curative treatments. Waivers will be reviewed and approved by the Chief Medical Officer of Tricare. Tricare for Kids Coalition will be assisting providers and families in the waiver process. For more information on processing a waiver to receive concurrent care for your pediatric patients, please contact Kara Oakley (firstname.lastname@example.org) at Tricare for Kids Coalition.
