    I know this is a long shot but did anyone's kids have to get one and did Tricare/triwest pay for it?

    My DD has moderate plagio. We saw a military neurosurgeon and then he refered us out. We had to get a referal to a civ. doctor for the DOC band. I believe this is the only way tricare will cover. We haven't had the appt yet so I am not sure 100%. I do believe it will be covered if the civ. doc deems it necessary.

    Many and that they will come through for you and pay for it.
    I am not really sure what the helmet is used for but I will keep you and your baby(s) in my prayers.
