    Question Birth control with tricare prime

    Advertisements
    Okay so I was flipping through my tricare handbook (don't ask me why. I honestly don't know ) and it said something about birthcontrol not being covered. Is that right? I was wanting to go on the Mirena IUD after having this baby and I don't know how much it is but money will be tight then so we can't afford to pay for much more than we already are.

    My birthcontrol is completely covered as long as I get it from them. Otherwise I just have to pay a small fee.

    Yes what she said above. Merina you can I know because my doc suggested it for me. But you can talk to your doctor more about that.

    Yep, as long as it's through the MTF (military treatment facility) it's free. I had a mirena IUD put in in February.

    It is free. I have no idea why the handbook would say otherwise.
    Needs work.

    I am covered under Tricare Prime. I was referred by my Primary Care Manager, to an offbase GYN clinic to insert my Mirena IUD. I have never had children, but as a Diabetic, in the opinion of my Internal Medicine Dr., it was the best option for me to avoid hormones effecting my blood glucose readings. I did not have to pay any sort of co-pay, because I had a referral from my PCM. You should be good to go.

    You should have no problems, its free at the MTF and they have a fair amount of options... I have a friend who just got the mirena too.

    That's what I was thinking. I second guessed, because I thought it was supposed to be covered but I read in there that it wasn't. But if all of you ladies have been on some kind of bc and it was covered then I believe y'all.
