    Confused DFs Tri-Care insurance coverage

    Advertisements
    Okay so I found out this week after my blood tests came back that I may be a potential carrier for Fragile X. This is a mutation of your x chromosome that can cause autism in children. Everyone has it but depending on how many mutations there are determines whether or not it is a threat to your child. Anywho my doctor isnt too worried about it but I do have an appointment to see a specialist next week to make sure its not going to be something I pass on to the baby. My doctor said that as long as DF is not carrier there's really nothing to worry about. My insurance covers me to have the testing done but will his? Its a Genetic counsler/specialist...

    Personally, if I were him I would go to medical and explan to his Primary care provider what is going on, maybe bring some paperwork from your doctor ... and ask if they will test. Its free to ask, not free to assume no and pay for the test at a civilian facility.

    I agree. Have him talk to his PCM or talk to Tricare. Depending on the risks there may be an exception. You'll never know until you ask Tricare.

    Thanks for that info I'm going to have him contact Tricare on Monday and if necessary I think there is a air force base near here he could go to if necessary. Thanks!!
