Am I wrong for feeling this way?
My husband was retired from the military for medical reasons. He sustained a traumatic brain injury while he was in Iraq. It really messed up his brain and everything connected to it, including his eyes.
After he was discharged, we had to move back with family so I could finish school so we will actually be able to get by after I get a good job. He can't work. This means that we had move out of the area that has TRICARE prime providers and we are under TRICARE standard. This also means that we don't have dental coverage or vision coverage for him. Standard doesn't cover vision.
We're without a working income, and his vision keeps going downhill. I can't afford to get him new glasses out of pocket. This seems totally wrong considering the insurance we get is supposed to be because he was injured, but it doesn't cover everything effected by the injury! I want to cry. It's frustrating.
