About TRICARE

TRICARE is a major part of the Military Health System that:

  • Combines the resources of military hospitals and clinics with civilian health care networks
  • Offers several health plan options that give our beneficiaries access to high-quality health care
  • Provides comprehensive health coverage, including prescription drugs
  • Supports military operations and readiness

Please visit the TRICARE Website to learn more:


While TRICARE covers formulas and vitamins for enrollees with metabolic disorders, TRICARE doesn't cover regular baby formula for otherwise-healthy infants. TRICARE also doesn't directly ship baby formula to beneficiaries. Parents with children who have a medical need for specialized formula should work with their pediatrician, Primary Care Manager, or specialist in case they can't get the formula they need. To learn more about what TRICARE covers, visit www.tricare.mil.
