Federal Laws (18 U.S.C. 287 and 1001) provide for criminal penalties for knowingly submitting or making any false, fictitious or fraudulent statement
or claim in any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States. Examples of fraud include situations in which ineligible
persons knowingly use an unauthorized Identification Card in filing of a TRICARE/CHAMPUS claim; or where providers submit claims for treatment, supplies or
equipment not rendered to, or used for TRICARE DoD/CHAMPUS beneficiaries; or where a participating provider bills the beneficiary/patient (or sponsor) for
amounts over the TRICARE/CHAMPUS-determined allowable charge; or where a beneficiary/patient (or sponsor) fails to disclose other medical benefits or
health insurance coverage.
IMPORTANT - READ CAREFULLY
Use this form if your provider doesn't file a claim for you. If you receive care overseas you can register on the secure claims portal to file your overseas claim

each drug; NDC for each drug if available; the prescription number of each drug; the name and address of the pharmacy; and the name and address
of the prescribing physician. Billing statements showing only total charges, or canceled checks, or cash register and similar type receipts are not
acceptable as itemized statements, unless the receipt provides detailed information required above.
