I have seen this multiple times on CM. No one has ever been able to answer where and what it shows up as on an LES.

Could someone please answer me?

Not sure. Just know that I'm good if I get hurt or worse.

i just asked my husband...he said nothing shows up for medical but something shows up for dental because they get some money taken out of their check for dental

It does not show up at all on the LES. At least Prime

Your husband is correct. Dental is about $30 per month for a family. Dental is also optional.

Sounds like either you weren't covered or didn't use the primary facility..Unfortunately tricare is really screwy...If your within so many miles of a military installation that has medical care..doctors, hospital, etc your required to use them.  As for them covering maternity..I never had to pay for anything for either birth of my children other than food I ate while in the hospital. 

I'd have your husband call tricare if he's the Active Duty person.

tricare. it won't show up on an LES, cause you don't pay into it. it's free. the only thing not free is vision and dental which you pay seperately, usually through united concordia
