Need advice for my friend regarding Tricare

My best friend is having a hip replacement tomorrow. Her husband is currently deployed, and his CoC refused to send him home for this. Will Tricare cover a home-health nurse or anything to help her once she is at home?

i would imagine they would because they would likely pay for skilled bed placement in the event she opted to complete her recovery in a nursing home.  She should call the discharge planning social worker at the hospital she is having the procedure at and ask.

 

i pesonally don"t know though

awesome. thank you ladies. she doesn't want to go into a rehab facility, so we are trying to figure out all of her other options.

I don't blame her. Those rehab places smell bad (to me). Plus, there is nothing like recovering at home.

 If your friend has any trouble finding help, please let me know and I will be happy to do anything I can to assist.  Also, does she have kids?

like PP said IF it is written properly yes.. they paid for a home nurse for my sister when my nephew was on chemo, they paid for her to come out and show my sister how to do the at home chemo:)

No. She doesn't have any children. She has hip dysplasia in both hips, and they are going to perform hip replacements. She is getting her right done tomorrow, and her left will be done in about 3 months. Her husband just deployed two months or so ago.
