    tricare/counseling?

    Advertisements
    Obviously I am having a hard time dealing with all this crap, even though I know I am better off. I am sure it'll be a little better after the baby is born and I am less hormonal but I am just wondering if tricare covers counseling. I am not going crazy or anything I just think I could benifit from talking to someone. Does tricare cover it?

    They should. I know they do counseling at the Family Resource Center at 32nd Street.

    I am pretty sure they do...if not, I do know that a lot of the bases or military welfare centers offer different things that might help...not sure what you are near though

    Yes Tricare will cover it.

    All you need to do is go on the Tricare site & do a provider search...then make your apt w/ whom you chose.

    Or you can go on base to the family support.

    YEs they do and you have 8 appointments a year where a referral is not required.

    I think it starts over at the anniversary date Jodi, so I dont think its January 1'st, but I could be wrong. I hope you find a good counselor!

    Yes they do! I recommend going out in town rather than through Fleet & Family Services. They suck, since they're "kinda" doing it pro-bono...Tricare doesn't pay 'em!!!!!
