Tricare Help

Will Tricare pay to reverse sterilization?

I am an Air Force retiree. After being divorced for 19 years, I will be remarried in August. My fiancée has had her tubes tied, but we would like to try to have a baby together. After we get married, will Tricare pay for her to have her tubes untied? And will it pay for her to become a mom?

I have bad news and good news. Tricare covers voluntary sterilization procedures (vasectomy for men and tubal ligation for women), but it does not cover reversal of these procedures. However, assuming that your bride-to-be has other insurance and can get her tubal ligation reversed on her own, she will be fully covered by Tricare for maternal care, and any children you may have together will be fully covered for their health care needs as well.
