    Tricare & Pregnancy question

    Advertisements
    My husband got out of the Navy in August. I got pregnant in April & was seen by military doctors about my pregnancy up until July. Someone at work told me that if you get pregnant while your husband is active in the navy, that I can use tricare until I deliver? I had no clue! & that would be awesome, b/c we are paying out the ass for insurance for my medical bills!

    i have never heard that. i have heard that tricare covers you for a bit after you get out but i am not sure how long. but to use tricare, you have to have an id card
