    Tricare and infertility treatment

    Advertisements
    anyone know what Tricare pays as far as infertility treatment? My health insurance through my employer will pay for testing to diagnose the infertility but not the actual fertility treatment (IVF, drugs..etc).

    I think tricare has it on their site..
    they'll pay for diagnostics, most drugs, IUI (the actual IUI, not the cleaning of the sperm), not IVF (certain MTFs offer IVF for a lower cost)

    i'll see if i can find something on their site for ya

    heres what their site says:
    Infertility Treatment

    TRICARE may cover certain types of infertility testing and treatment. so much for being specific

    From my research, it truly depends on the location you are at. They cover the basic meds and treatments so long as you are still doing timed intercourse, and some places cover IUI. A few of teh MTF's offer IVF at lower cost, but there is a wait list for those locations.

    I did IVR at WRAMC. If you have any questions feel free to PM me. A good board to go to is www.fertilethoughts.com. There is a military board there with a ton of info.
