Breast Pump

TRICARE may cover electric hospital-grade breast pumps for premature infants who meet certain criteria.  The breast pump may be covered for use in the hospital, and in certain cases, if the physician can prove medical necessity, for home use.

TRICARE doesn't cover:

  • Electric hospital-grade breast pumps for convenience
  • Basic electric breast pumps
  • Manual breast pumps

This A-Z list of topics is not all inclusive. TRICARE covers most inpatient and outpatient care that is medically necessary and considered proven. However, there are special rules or limits on certain types of care, while other types of care are not covered at all.
