TRICARE; Off-Label Uses of Devices; Partial List of Examples of Unproven Drugs, Devices, and Medical Treatments or Procedures
Document Number: E9-20683
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-08-31
Agency: Office of the Secretary, Department of Defense
The Department of Defense is publishing this proposed rule to revise the definition of ``unlabeled or off-label drug'' to ``off-label use of a drug or device.'' This revision is consistent with the regulatory framework under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Additionally, this rule removes the partial list of examples of unproven drugs, devices, and medical treatments or procedures proscribed in TRICARE regulations. As it is determined that reliable evidence demonstrates that previously unproven drugs, devices, and medical treatments or procedures have proven medical effectiveness, TRICARE has removed them from the list and authorized medically necessary care. This revision removing the partial list is necessary as the list will never be completely current, and is only a partial list of examples. The removal of this partial list does not change or eliminate any benefits that are currently available under the TRICARE program.
TRICARE; Reimbursement of Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs)
Document Number: E9-20682
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-08-31
Agency: Office of the Secretary, Department of Defense
This rule implements the statutory provisions that TRICARE payment methods for institutional care be determined to the extent practicable in accordance with the same reimbursement rules as those that apply to payments to providers of services of the same type under Medicare. This final rule implements a reimbursement methodology similar to that furnished to Medicare beneficiaries for services provided by critical access hospitals (CAHs).

The United States (U.S.) Department of the Navy (Navy), after carefully weighing the environmental consequences of the installation and operation of the proposed action, announces its decision to develop an undersea warfare training range (USWTR) within the Preferred Alternative Site, the Jacksonville Operating Area (JAX OPAREA).
