Tricare Breast Augmentation

Breast Reduction surgery can occasionally be covered by your health insurance. However, most health insurances require permission or pre-certification, to ensure payment. Health insurance companies across the country have different requirements, but some are fairly general and are widespread. To obtain pre-certification, your plastic surgeon will meet with you and discuss with you what needs to be done before surgery can be scheduled.

Having large breasts ormacromastia, is the most obvious reason for wanting a breast reduction. Typically, you may be experiencing neck, back, and shoulder pain. You may have grooving of the soft tissue and skin of your shoulders because of your bra strap creating a skin fold in your upper shoulders.

Intertrigo, also known skin irritation, may occur in your breast fold, because your breast tissue is so heavy and may generate pressure on your breast fold area. Documented cases of breast intertrigo may require skin creams or antibiotics to help prevent it.

Your weight should be proportionate to your height. Your health insurance company will probably not approve surgery for breast reduction if you are significantly overweight. Larger or overweight women may have larger breasts, and overall weight loss may result in smaller breasts.

Physical therapy may help with neck, back, and shoulder pain. If your family doctor has recommended physical therapy first, then this may help with your pain. If you still have continued pain from bilateral macromastia after tryingphysical therapy, then you have a slightly stronger case to get your beast reduction surgery authorized.

Photographic documentation is key to get approval for breast reduction surgery. Your plastic surgeon will probably take photographs of your chest and then your health insurance company authorization panel will want to review them to ensure that you are a candidate for surgery.

Every health insurance company will vary a little in terms of what requirements they need regarding breast reduction surgery. You may have to take a more active role than you realize to get your surgery approved. Although your Plastic Surgeon will handle the initial request and submission of forms, you may have to contact your health insurance company to speed the process along.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    will tricare cover breast augmentation if I have asymmetrical breasts?
    I have always been embarrassed (even in front of my own husband) about my breasts. They have always been uneven and very obviously so, but have worsened after two kids. My left nip is much lower than my right, and I would need a lift on the left but want implants too, to restore volume. Does anyone know if tricare would cover this? I know generally tricare doesn’t cover augmentation except in cases of birth defects… From my reading online, it seems there is confusion as to whether asymmetry is a defect or not. Thanks for any help… Please only answer if you’re certain one way or the other.

    • ANSWER:
      From my understanding, Tricare will only cover breast reductions IF it meets certain criteria (pain, back problems, etc). They would also covering anything that’s needed done in relation to breast cancer. I’ve never heard of them covering anything else.

  2. QUESTION:
    I’m looking to get breast augmentation and i’ve heard that military dependants can get it through tricare
    I heard recently heard that Tricare can pay for plastic surgery.Is that true? and If so where do i start? Is it only in selected states?Any feedback on how i go about this procedure is greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      There is a long waiting list and usually unless it is for reconstruction surgery you are not eligible. Best bet would be to call Tricare and ask.

  3. QUESTION:
    Tricare covers breast surgery for AD?
    I know a few women who are [active duty] in the AF. Their breast augmentations were covered/paid for by Tricare. The only reason they need to have this done is that they have self-esteem issues. Wtf? What about every other woman on the planet?…especially the moms out there with self-esteem issues! This annoys me. Has anyone else heard of this?

    • ANSWER:
      wait a second.. are we talking breast reduction or implants?

      i had a breast reduction a year ago.. i am a dependent of the military and tricare did pay for my surgery.

  4. QUESTION:
    Does the Army pay for breast implants?? TRICARE PRIME?
    Ok, I’ve had 2 kids, breastfed both of them and now my boobs are literally nothing but skin. Will Tricare in this case cover implants? My mother told me that her neighbor on base had hers done simply because she wanted nicer boobs and tricare covered all of it. I’ve read up on it and I know the tricare website says no they will not cover breast augmentation unless u’ve had a mastectomy. Then why have I heard stories of military spouses getting implants just because??

    • ANSWER:
      no health insurance. will pay for breast implants because it is considered a cosmetic surgery.

  6. QUESTION:
    How do people get cosmetic procedures covered by Tricare?
    My husband is in the army and after having our two little girls, I would like to have a tummy tuck. I have Yahoo Answered the topic and most people have answered that you can be covered by Tricare if you have hadGastric Bypass.
    I grew up Military and know for a FACT that women had breast augmentation, tummy tucks, and other cosmetic procedures covered by Tricare.
    Does anyone know what the loophole is? Please only those who has or knows someone who has had Tricare covered cosmetic procedures.

    • ANSWER:
      I was in the Air Force for 8 years and worked in surgery. If I remember correctly, it has to be tied to a mental health issue. What I mean by that is that I know of active duty females that had breast augmentation due to the fact that they had “mental health issues” associated with having small breasts. I know it sounds silly, and a huge waste of tax dollars, but that is how it went down. I’m sure if you looked into it you could work a similar type of deal.

  7. QUESTION:
    about TRICARE coverage?
    i am just really curious. my husband is in the army and we have tricare. Ive heard from a few people through the FRG that tricare will cover tummy tucks and breast augmentation if the soldier is not happy with their spouses appearance. How true is this?
    thank yall for confirming what i thought! adn for everyone! my husband is not a jerk and i dont need those two. i had heard that and i went on tricare because i didnt believe it and even told the women who were saying it that i thought it was false so i just needed some other opinions to make me feel better LOL

    • ANSWER:
      they wont cover it if a spouse is simply “unhappy” with the appearance. however, yeah they WILL cover plastic surgery if deemed medically necessary just like any other medical insurance will.

      TRICARE covers cosmetic, reconstructive and plastic surgery to improve the physical appearance of a beneficiary only under the following circumstances:

      Correction of a birth defect
      Restoration of a body form following an accidental injury
      Revision of disfiguring and extensive scars resulting from neoplastic surgery (i.e., surgery that removes a tumor or cyst)
      Reconstructive breast surgery following a medically necessary mastectomy
      Reconstructive breast surgery due to a congenital anomaly (birth defect)
      Penile implants and testicular prostheses for conditions resulting from organic origins or for organic impotency
      Surgery to correct pectus excavatum
      Liposuction when medically necessary
      Panniculectomy (tummy tuck) performed in conjunction with an abdominal or pelvic surgery when medical review determines that the procedure significantly contributes to the safe and effective correction or improvement of bodily function.
      To be covered, surgeries must be performed no later than December 31st of the year following the accidental injury or surgical trauma, except in the case of postmastectomy reconstructive breast surgery or cases involving children who may require a growth period.

      TRICARE does not cover cosmetic, reconstructive or plastic surgery related to:

      Dental congenital anomalies
      Elective correction of minor skin blemishes and marks
      Breast augmentation
      Face lifts
      Reduction mammoplasties (breast reductions), except in the case of significant pain due to large breasts
      Blepharoplasty (removal of excess skin of the eyelid)
      Rhinoplasties (nose surgery)
      Chemical peeling for the treatment of facial wrinkles or acne scars
      Hair transplants
      Electrolysis
      Removal of tattoos
      Liposuction for body contouring.

      i am in the process of losing a lot of weight and when i get done plan to have excess skin removed through tricare. i have already had a couple of dr’s tell me it is common for them to cover things such as loose skin after massive weight loss.

  8. QUESTION:
    Tricare-Cosmetic Procedures?
    Hi, I was just wondering if this was true…I heard that you can get one cosmetic procedure a year on tricare. Is that true? If it is, how would I go about getting a breast augmentation? Thank You!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Not true, they will do it for AD members or dependents if the procedure is needed for a valid reason. If they do offer it outside of that then you do have to get it approved and you will have to pay for part of it.

  9. QUESTION:
    I need help. birth defect ruining my self esteem….?
    I want to sell something on ebay to raise money for a breast augmentation. I’m not sure if I should auction off a bunch of my stuff to raise money or just 1 thing (in hopes that they buy based on wanting to help me).

    Let me explain. I’m 23 years old. I appear to be a cute young woman, but underneath my clothes I feel so ugly. I only developed one of my breasts, the other stayed small. It effects the way I see myself as a woman, it’s embarassing. The thing I have in my bra hides it USUALLY, but it’s hard to find clothes for summer. I don’t go swimming :(
    I always feel inferior to other women.

    What’s REALLY painful is that my husband is in the Navy and I was told birth defects are covered under his insurance. I was so happy. I did everything I had to do, got the consultation, scheduled my surgery date…but then Tricare denied me because my husband is leaving the Navy next month.

    I just want to look normal.

    so, what should I sell…or do you think nobody would even care?
    …So, this is what I chose to sell. It had the most meaning….

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290249621676&ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:US:1123

    tell me what you think?

    • ANSWER:
      Hey girl, I feel for you, When I was seventeen (in the 70′s) I had a girlfriend the same way. One side normal (C cup) the other didn’t even have nerve endings. She struggled with it. I found nothing wrong but, others did. I don’t think selling one thing on Ebay will do it, even with your story. An easier solution would be for your husband to go into the TAR (Training Active Reserves). They do not go to sea other than for training cruises. They cannot be sent to war as the reserves do and they get the same medical as full time Nav. They also accrue 2.5 points per year towards retirement and can draw pay after total of twenty years. As a reservist he would not get the benefits for family and would have to wait to 65 to draw pay and get .5 points per year.

      If the two of you can handle it it would be the best way for the care. Unless he has a total of eight years service he will be required to be in at least the inactive reserves when he gets out. Whats this mean? He can be called back until the eight year point is reached.

      I hope things go well for you. You deserve it.
