I am now dependent of my son in Army at Ft. Campbell.
I know nothing about Tricare.

Anybody have it?
Any doctors that accept it?
Any centers that accept it?
Because Hansa does not code insurance submission not an option- right?

Anything has to be better than Medicaid which does not pay for prescriptions not prescribed by Medicaid Doctor and no Medicaid Doctor will treat Lyme.

So suggestions?
Always grateful for responses!

I know it from a dental point of view (I was an office manager at dental clinic and filed tons of claims). It's a top premium insurance. Most private practices accept it especially if it's any where near a military base.

Deductibles are low. It normally covers a larger portion of cost than average insurance. It's definitely in the upper echelon of insurance. Rightfully so as military service people and their dependents should be taken care of, it's the least society can do.

I believe this is most likely the case crossing over to medical as well.

A newer LLMD in the Triangle area of NC accepts it. Pretty sure this doc is finding big obstacles along the way so I'm not sure how long this doc will be able to take the insurance.
