Chiropractic Care

TRICARE doesn't cover chiropractic care.

However, the Chiropractic Health Care Program is available to active duty service members (including activated National Guard and Reserve members) at designated military hospitals and clinics.

Family members, retirees and their family members, unremarried former spouses and survivors are not eligible for this program. They may be referred to non-chiropractic health care services in the Military Health System (e.g., physical therapy or orthopedics) or may seek chiropractic care in the local community at their own expense.

Disclaimer:

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.
