What Is DD Form 2642?

DD Form 2642, TRICARE DoD/CHAMPUS Medical Claim - Patient's Request for Medical Payment is used for evaluating eligibility for medical care provided by civilian sources. Beneficiaries can get the DD 2642 claim form through a TRICARE Regional Contractor, from a military hospital or directly from the TRICARE website.

In most cases, your provider will file the claim and you'll get an explanation of benefits showing what was paid. Sometimes, you'll need to file your own claims (i.e. when traveling or getting care from a non-participating provider).

DD Form 2642 is often incorrectly referred to as DA Form 2642. The form was last revised on April 2007 - a fillable up-to-date version is available below.
