Family Planning -- Question & Answer Listing  
Question / Answer

Do I need to enroll my newborn in TRICARE?

TRICARE provides TRICARE Prime coverage for your newborn for the first 120 days of the newborn's life--as long as one additional family member is enrolled in TRICARE Prime. After 120 days, your newborn would be covered under the TRICARE Standard benefit - with lesser benefits and increased costs unless you enroll your newborn in TRICARE Prime. Contact the regional TRICARE contractor to determine if you reside in a TRICARE Prime service area.

Where can I go for prenatal and postnatal care?

The first resource to go to for prenatal and postnatal care should be your local Military Treatment Facility (MTF) or civilian health care provider. Additionally, there are other civilian agencies that can provide some additional assistance such as a Planned Parenthood agency. For general information about prenatal and postnatal care, check with your local library for videos and reading materials. There are also many online resources such as those found on MedLine Plus and Planned Parenthood's websites.

Where can I obtain family planning information?

There are many local, State, and Federal agencies available where you can obtain family planning information such as Planned Parenthood or other family service agencies. Your local Military Treatment Facility (MTF) (or civilian health care provider) can also provide you with family planning information. Additionally, the Army Community Service's (ACS) New Parent Support Program (NPSP) offers services (such as parenting skills classes) to assist parents from pregnancy through the time a child is 3 years old.
