If the doc deems a scrip is merited, they usually do.

I am a SLP. We see kids with Tricare as insurance.

So yes, they should cover it as long as there are referrals in place. Amt of coverage is dependent on the need. Usually we get a doc referral for an eval and we do the eval and indicate on the report if we recommend tx or not. Goodluck :)

Thank you Lady for posting this question...

I am curious if the wait is really long to get in to see a SLP within the military medical system?

If your dr deems it necessary tricare will cover it. Availability of a speech therapist depends on where you are located.

They do. My son had speech impediments. He was given a referral for an evaluation and speech therapy over the course of one year, meeting one time a week for one hour each week. He was then re evaluated after a year, and no longer needed it. As long as you ask your pediatrician, they will grant you the evaluation and therapy sessions.

Thank you... I was just curious as we are using private coverage right now for it but hubby wants to switch over just to tricare and I am concerned about wait times as dd is verbally apraxic so she needs speech several times a week...
