The latest “Certified” list was posted by International SOS (ISOS) and we reviewed the list for suspicious removal activity. The providers we are concerned with were not moved to the Not Seen in > 2 Years list. This means beneficiaries used these providers during the last 2 years yet they secretly disappeared. While it is possible that they died or retired we find that is not the case with most of the ones we researched. So the removals are extremely suspicious and appear to involve the secret sanctioning process that is only conducted against providers in the Philippines; every other beneficiary anywhere in the world can access a list of sanctioned providers in their area. In the Philippines the Defense Health Agency (DHA) prefers beneficiaries play their game of Russian Roulette!
These are the results of our review:
Six (6) providers simply disappeared in secret and under suspicious circumstances.
See List of Secretly Removed Certified Providers. It can also be accessed from the TRICARE Overseas Philippines blog’s “Useful Links” on the right under the same name. It lists all providers removed in secret and under suspicious circumstances since 1 July 2013.
Never forget the Defense Health Agency and International SOS always have your back when it comes to high quality and easy access to care; just ask them!
