Will TRICARE cover the cost for nursing home care?  
Long-term care, also known as “custodial” care, is not a TRICARE or Medicare covered benefit. Long-term care refers to assisting individuals with services associated with daily living such as bathing, dressing, using the bathroom, etc. However, TRICARE and Medicare both provide coverage (with co-payments) for care delivered in a skilled nursing facility, where nursing and rehabilitation services are provided by licensed nurses, physical and/or occupational therapists, etc. and are determined to be medically necessary by a Medicare/TRICARE authorized physician. Other health insurance coverage may have different benefits. Contact your heath insurance customer service representative for more information.
