Report Fraud or Abuse

What is fraud and abuse?

  • Fraud—when a person or organization deliberately deceives others to gain some sort of unauthorized benefit.
  • Abuse—when providers supply services or products that are medically unnecessary or that do not meet professional standards.

You're an important partner in the ongoing fight against fraud and abuse. Your explanation of benefits (EOB) is a statement of services or supplies received, and it's one of the first lines of defense against health care fraud.

  • Read your EOBs carefully
  • The EOB includes a toll-free number to call if you have questions
  • Visit your regional contractor's website to view your EOBs, get your claims history and track TRICARE costs paid.

And remember, no one from TRICARE will ever contact you to recommend a particular product or medicine. If are ever contacted on the phone or via email, don't share any personal information and report the incident to your contractor immediately.

See the table below for details about how to report suspected fraud or abuse.
