Traveling While Pregnant & Tricare (prime)

I can easily call my OB tomorrow and ask but I thought I might as well post in here to see if anyone knows...

I was told after a certain week of pregnancy Tricare might not cover an emergency delivery at an unauthorized hospital so I shouldn't travel far after that week...

I can't remember which week it was...does anyone know?

Thanks in advance :)

32 weeks. Birth is considered an eminent event after that. I've had friends that did travel and were on the road and gave birth, and Tricare did pay, but that is not to say that that will pay either.

I didn't even know this... I went to visit my parents at 35 weeks both pregnancies, but my doctor knew I was doing it and my pregnancies were cake so she wasn't worried.
