    Question Birthing centers

    Advertisements
    No, I'm not pregnant but I'm doing my research now since I had such an awful delivery with Matt. Will tricare cover a birthing center? I'm really want to go completely natural with my next baby (I had complications due to the epidural) and would love to be able to go to a birthing center as opposed to the army hospital I was at last time.

    I am pretty sure I remember reading they do allow midwives and birthing centers. Might call Tricare and check for sure though.

    Good luck

    Ask Bryanna. She gave birth at a birthing center.
    An unconditional right to say what one pleases about public affairs is what I consider to be the minimum guarantee of the First Amendment.

    They covered the one I went to.... I only paid 75 dollars total with standard... and I think 50 of that was payment for tricare anyway.

    that included prenatal and post natal care.

    ETA: I had the most amazing experience.... definitely look into it.

    If you have Tricare standard but not Prime! I was seeing a civi Dr. and Tricare forced me to go on base for the remander of my pregnancy because they "ran out of money" (so they say) and where refering all pregnacy's to base hospitals/Dr's/Midwives. That was my situation and it was only last year, things could have changed plus I live in San Diego. You need to contact tricare and find out what they say for your location.

    Before my SIL miscarried (a couple weeks ago) she was forced to go to the base when she wanted to go to the womens hospital out in town. My brother and SIL live in Albuquerque and my brother is Air Force.
