Billing your private insurance carrier will help us offset the cost of care and allow for improvements to the quality of care you receive at the MTF. How the TPC program benefits you- Most insurance plans have a deductible that must be met before the plan begins to pay. Costs for services billed by the MTF will be applied toward your deductible. This means you may pay less out- of- pocket expense when later seeking health care through a civilian provider.- You also benefit from the TPC program because the MTF that collects the money uses the insurance reimbursements to enhance their services for you.
