TRICARE for Life Fraud Alert!
The DHA Office of the Inspector General and TRICARE For Life contractor are aware of a text message phishing scam (also called “smishing”). Some beneficiaries report getting a text message from 888-763-0248, claiming to be WPS-TFL. The message states their health care is going to expire due to nonpayment and to call the toll-free number. TFL beneficiaries seem to be the target population. But scammers may target all TRICARE beneficiaries. 

TRICARE will never call to ask for payment, your personal identifying information, or your health information.
Never share personal or financial information with someone you don’t know.
