Is It Covered?

Search the A-Z list for a list of covered services. Your coverage and out-of-pocket costs may vary based on who you are and your health plan option.


TRICARE covers any therapy for the purpose of improving, restoring, maintaining, or preventing deterioration of function. The treatment must be medically necessary and appropriate.

Rehabilitation therapy must be:

  • rendered by an authorized provider,
  • necessary to the establishment of a safe and effective maintenance program in connection with a specific medical condition,
  • provided at a skilled level, and
  • must not be custodial care or otherwise excluded from coverage (e.g., exercise or able to be provided at a non-skilled level).

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.
