    pregnant but not married

    Advertisements
    If a guy is in the military and his girlfriend is pregnant, is she covered by Tri-care? Who pays for her medical expenses? When the baby is born, will he/she be a dependent of the AD?

    Help because I'm confused.

    This isn't about moi.

    I dont think they girl would be covered if they are not married but once the baby is born the baby would will have medical. He just needs to put the baby on as his dependent and then the baby woud get an ID.

    Yup, I think that's how it works. The mother will not be covered under Tricare until they are married. Once the baby is born he/she can be enrolled in tricare. Plus I believe mom will have commisary/NEX benefits but ONLY for the baby. Not sure how exactly that works though.

    Thanks ladies.

    Dh & I were racking our brains trying to figure out how that scenario would play out.
