Just some background info: My husband just commissioned last week and heads to OBC this month. We're going to get me registered with DEERs this coming week before he leaves, because I'll be staying behind until he actually PCSs at the first of the year. We're expecting our first this November and I am about to enter my third trimester.
Now, I work for the state and have really great health benefits. I really like my OB and don't want to make any healthcare changes in my last trimester. We've already decided that baby and I will stay on my insurance through the rest of the pregnancy and until we make the PCS to the other side of the country. What I was wondering was if anyone knew whether or not I could use Tricare as a secondary insurance, and if so, is it even worth bothering with? My hospital co-pay will only be about $200 and I don't make prenatal co-payments, either. But, if something were, heaven forbid, to not go according to plan, post-natal co-pays have the potential to multiply quickly. Having a secondary insurance that could help with that might be nice to have.
Any thoughts? Thanks!
