Change in coverage for Tricare Patients


To Our TRICARE Patient Families:

We have just been informed of a change in the coverage of WELL CHILD visits by TRICARE.

According to our TRICARE representative, TRICARE will only cover WELL CHILD visits through the age of 5 years.  This falls far short of the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation thatchildren have a WELL CHILD exam annually through the age of 18.  This information can also be found on the TRICARE website:
