TRICARE is a medical welfare program in the United States operated by the United States Department of Defense Military Health System in partnership with private companies, who currently manage health care for over 9.6 million beneficiaries. Tricare’s primary customers are military members and their families, but some veterans also are covered.
A leading military health insurance carrier, provides coverage for more than 5.4 million active military members, their families, and retirees. Tricare continues to expand benefits by now offering its members coverage for behavioral health services in most of its plans.
Does Tricare Cover Addiction Treatment?
The TRICARE program was initiated to provide comprehensive medical coverage for military families, retirees, and injured soldiers.
