Quick intro - my hubby is a pilot in the Air Force. We have a 2 yr dd and I'm pregnant with our second.
I'm using a new OB practice with this pregnancy - referred off base. This office offers the NT scan at 12 wks as they have the equipment and trained personnel to do it. It was not offered at my previous OB. Will Tricare Prime cover this scan?? Anyone have experience with this? I called tricare, the lady I spoke with was about as helpful as tits on a bull (sorry lol that's my moms expression). All she kept saying was only scans that are "medically necessary" are covered. Soooo how does one determine that? Is it all in how the dr office codes the scan when submitting the claim?
Thanks in advance for any input!!
