So my husband goes to MEPS in about a week and I have a few questionfor current military wives about health insurance.
I guess the first one is how good is the health insurance, the recruiter my husband has been in contact with keeps saying it's great. He's a great guy, been very informative but his job is to get people to enlist so as one wife to another how are the benefits? Especially things like pediatric coverage and obstetrical coverage (might not actually need obstetrical coverage but just in case).
I guess my second question is do the benefits start when he goes to BCT, or AIT, or when he's actually assigned to post? I am 6 1/2 months pregnant and we have a 3 year old little boy so I'm trying to make arrangements with insurance companies so that we are covered during any gap in coverage.
I guess my last question is will the Army insurance, I think if my understanding is correct it's called Tricare, cover things like having your tubes tied? We have a boy, I'm pregnant with a girl so we've decided we are done having children.
Thank you for the help
