    Chiropractic Care?

    Advertisements
    Does Tricare cover it for the AD spouse? I was told by husband that he thinks only the AD member is covered for it, and the spouse has to pay out of pocket.

    I've read in the Tricare newsletters that it IS covered for AD... the spouse has to pay out of pocket, or get a physical therapy referral.. that's what I did..

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    technically no. But like Melissa said if it is listed as PT then all is well.

    Actually it is only covered for AD at certain places and I found out that if the AD member doesn't ask/qualify for the one that the military offers and gets hurt he can A) get in a lot of trouble and B) tricare may not pay for anything that may be injured because of his UA chiropractic care. scary huh?


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    Eek that would figure.

    I'm thinking I won't have a prob getting a referral for myself with my history of chiro treatments.

    My PCM was super cool about putting it in for me.. Tricare even paid for an electrical stim. machine for pain... My dr. said that PT is better for long term care anyhow, because they work with strengthening things and not just realignment. I went to the chiro for quite a long time when I was a teen.
