What is the Program for Persons with Disabilities (PFPWD) and what costs will I be responsible for?  
The Program for Persons with Disabilities (PFPWD) provides financial assistance to reduce the costs to care for active duty family members who have moderate or severe mental retardation and those who have a significant physical disability. The program is subject to certain restrictions and it may be used concurrently with other TRICARE medical programs. PFPWD eligibility is a prerequisite to benefit authorization. Active duty family members, or persons acting on their behalf, who apply for benefits under the TRICARE PFPWD must show that the medical condition qualifies them for the program and that the requested benefits are necessary and appropriate and that the medical condition requiring care is beyond the scope of your nearest uniformed services hospital. Additionally, community resources (such as public funds that may be available for persons with disabilities) must be either unavailable or insufficient to meet the patient’s disability-related needs. Part of the monthly expenses for the person’s care must be paid before TRICARE Standard can help. How much you must pay depends on the sponsor’s pay grade.
