TRICARE has updated their breast pump policy and now, as of July 1, 2015, they will cover breast pumps and supporting supplies in full for new mothers and mothers who adopt an infant and plan to breastfeed. TRICARE had been ordered by lawmakers to include this coverage as part of the National Defense Authorization Act.
Prior to this update, TRICARE was only covering the rental of a hospital grade breast pump when separation of mom and baby occurred due to illness. TRICARE will now cover a manual, electric, or hospital grade breast pump as long as members have a written prescription that specifically indicates which type of breast pump the member needs. TRICARE’s breastfeeding support benefit is considered to be preventive care; therefore the equipment and supplies covered under this benefit are covered in full not subject to any co-payments or deductibles.
