The Claims Office asserts claims in accordance with the Federal Medical Care Recovery Act (FMCRA) in order to recover the cost of medical care provided by Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs) and TRICARE. Pursuant to the FMCRA, the United States may recover its medical care costs when beneficiaries who receive medical care at an MTF or through TRICARE are injured by an at-fault third party. Affirmative claims are often asserted for cases involving automobile accidents, assaults, dog bites, workers’ compensation, slips and falls, and civilian medical malpractice. In many instances, the Claims Office may recover lost wages for Soldiers who are on convalescent leave. The Claims Office also asserts claims for loss or damage to U.S. Government property caused by at-fault third parties.
If you or your dependents received medical care at government expense after being injured by the negligence of a third party, received medical care at Government expense, or you are aware of damage to government property, please notify the Claims Office at 719-526-2462.
