WHY won't tricare cover this!!?? This is clearly medically necessary, no? I can't believe it!

Examples

Items not covered under Tricare:

Termination of pregnancy
Current benefit: excluded from coverage unless the life of the mother is endangered if fetus carried to term (statute)

Smoking cessation
Current benefit: excluded from coverage (regulation)

DOC band (cranial orthotic for plagiocephaly)
Current benefit: excluded from coverage (cosmetic care and unproven)

Screening colonoscopy for normal risk beneficiaries
Benefit in Jan 2006: excluded from coverage (unproven)


Yeah, cosmetic care and unproven...Gotta love Tricare. This is only a partial list btw, we have a list of like 100 things that they dont cover.
