Check out the FAQ for this board - answer is there.
But since I'm answering anyway, generally, the answer is no. Even with the healthcare law changes, Tricare didn't change.
Here is a post from awhile ago - check out the links in my response there.
Sometimes you can borrow one from WIC if you're eligible.
Ha! Yea... No! I called tricare and they told me no. I wasn't too happy when I hung up.
Sad thing is alot of people think because of this new change that all breast pumps are going to be covered. Sad thing is most people dont know there has to be a reason for a breast pump to be covered. A baby born premie, baby in the nicu or for other medical reasons. The Dr has to write a medical reason down for a RX to get on. Than sometimes its only going to be coverd for X amount of time. Your best bet it just to call Tricare and talk to them. This way you can know the rules.
Igoo0304:I think the general consensus is that it does not unless the baby has to be in the NICU. However, some MTFs will loan out pumps.
This. If your baby has to be in the NICU they will let your rent one from them. At least that's how it is on Bragg.
This, they will only cover it if your child(ren) are in the NICU and even then you must go through their 'dealer' and if you don't you have to submit a claim to be backpaid the rental. Your OB must write a referral to rent a hospital grade pump. Trust me, its been a huge headache.
