Maternity care is 100% covered regardless of which Tricare plan you're covered under. Some people get charged a hospital copay on Standard, which is correct according to the Tricare handbook, but it's $16.50/day.
FWIW, I delivered vaginally under Tricare Standard and paid $0 OOP, not even the copay.
I had a c/s and was in the hospital 6 days. We paid around $85, I can't remember the exact cost.
I had 1 baby completely natural (no pain meds and no meds to help labor along). I stayed 1 night and paid $25.
My next baby was a c-section. I was in the hospital for 3 nights and paid $75 ($25/night).
Ditto what the others said. It's about $17/night with a $25 minimum, regardless of what services/interventions you end up using/needing.
The costs are very minimal.
Awesome Question! I was wondering the same thing, did they use Base hosp? or out on town hosp? Cause I'm not thrilled with our base hosp...
They insisted I needed an iv for them to draw a tube of blood and give me a shot in the butt for a back ache.. and 3 corpsman insisted on trying before giving up and listening to me that the IV wasn't needed I'd take the shot in the butt, cause i wasn't gonna feel it in a second anyway. lol
