    The "1 Elective Surgery"

    Advertisements
    I'm sure we've all heard by now that Tricare coveres 1 elective surgery for dependents.
    But does anyone know which ones are covered?
    I've heard its only stuff like liposuction, breast reduction/implants and nose jobs.
    But I've also heard its stuff like tummy tucks and face lifts and such. Anyone know for sure???

    I know I can get my breast reduction/lift covered for medical reasons and still have my 1 elective left to use and I'm really hoping to get a tummy tuck covered LOL

    Hey I dropped 100 pounds in the last 18 months - I can do it again I was just frustrated because I knew I'd have to pay for the skin removal myself. Now I'm finding out I might not have to - that's fantabulous news

    Becca that is awesome.. my problem is me.. i am too lazy.. once i get started i am ok, but it's the getting started.. and yup as far as I know tricare does cover tummy tucks.. they have for a looooonnnngg time.. i remember in the 90's our old neighbor got one at the army hospital.. so they have covered them for a while.
