TriCare paying for my boobies?

Will TriCare cover reconstruction after a lumpectomy if my breasts are now not symmetric and noticeably different sizes/shapes?
I have read so many different conflicting posts about whether or not they cover it so I'm just looking to see if anyone has been in this situation.
Some people say yes they covered everything and some people said they had problems getting TriCare to even cover the surgery.

 You can call tricare and ask, or better yet have the doc who is doing the surgery determine what they will cover.

Call them. They might consider that cosmetic which they wont cover but since it's due to a surgery like that they might.

I know Tricare covers one elective surgery for the active duty member. I also know the AD member can sign it over to their spouse. I want my husband so sign his over so I can get LASIK.

I don't know if yours is elective or not. I say call them or get in touch with your doctor and ask.

Good luck xx
