Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 117 / Tuesday, June 19, 2007 / Notices On November 5, 2001, the Department of Defense (DoD) published a notice of a Nationwide TRICARE Demonstration Project (66 FR 55928–55930). On October 1, 2004, the Department of Defense (DoD) published a notice (69 FR 58895) to extend the Demonstration through October 31, 2005. On October 12, 2005, the Department of Defense (DoD) published a notice (70 FR 59320) to extend the Demonstration through October 31, 2007. The continued activation of Reserve Component members in support of Noble Eagle/ Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom warrants the continuation of the Demonstration to support the healthcare needs and morale of family members of activated Reservists and guardsmen. The National Defense Authorization Act of 2005 amended existing statutes to authorize the Secretary of Defense to provide these benefits permanently by regulation. The Demonstration needs to be extended to allow sufficient time to complete the rule-making process. The impact, if the Demonstration is not extended before the regulation is completed, includes higher out-ofpocket costs and potential inability of beneficiaries to continue to use the same provider for ongoing care. There are three separate components to the demonstration. First, those who participate in TRICARE Standard will not be responsible for paying the TRICARE Standard deductible. By law, the TRICARE Standard deductible for active duty dependents is $150 per individual, $300 per family ($50/$150 for E–4’s and below). The second component extends TRICARE payment up to 115 percent of the TRICARE maximum allowable charge, less the applicable patient copayment, for care received from a provider that does not participate (accept assignment) under TRICARE to the extent necessary to ensure timely access to care and clinically appropriate continuity of care. Third, the Demonstration authorizes a waiver of the non-availability statement requirement of non-emergency impatient care. This Demonstration project is being conducted under the authority of 10 U.S.C. 1092. This Demonstration is extended through October 31, 2008. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: June 20, 2007. L.M.
