Tricare Covers Specialty Baby Formula Through Insurance Covered Baby Formula

Tricare – the health care program for uniformed service members, retirees, and their families around the world – supports the military by supporting their health. One benefit that Tricare offers that many members are not aware of is insurance covered baby formula. Through Tricare, parents whose children need specialty formula due to an allergy, metabolic disorder, or low birth weight may qualify for free baby formula through Tricare.

Parents whose infant needs a specialty formula learn quickly that specialty formula gets very expensive very quickly. This does not include formulas that are commercially available but still considered “regular” formulas.

Tricare baby formula is covered under “specialized formulas to include amino based formulas”. Insurance Covered Baby Formula is proud to work with Tricare to get members the newborn formula they need for their child.

For children who require specialty baby formula, parents will need a prescription from their pediatrician. These are usually for a specialty formula such as Elecare, Neocate, or PurAmino.

The next step is for the parents to enter their information on and hit submit. Next, an insurance specialist will reach out to confirm Tricare baby formula coverage and then confirm the prescription with the family’s pediatrician. After benefits are established, Tricare covered baby formula will ship directly to the family’s house for free.

Tricare infant formula is covered under Nutrition Therapy and is a benefit that all members are entitled to use. However, Tricare does not fulfill prescription formula as a prescription but rather as durable medical equipment, like a wheelchair or crutches. Just taking the prescription to a pharmacy won’t work. That’s why Insurance Covered Baby Formula is the perfect place to get Tricare infant formula covered.

Insurance Covered Baby Formula is part of a larger durable medical equipment company – MedSource, LLC – and is able to deliver formula directly to the family.
