In brief: Please check w a

Tricare supervisor to get accurate ; complete information.
Regulations can change. I believe that a home birth may be covered if it is done by a certified nurse midwife (cnmw) ; you have tricare prime remote ( >50 miles from mtf). If your mtf doesn't have labor/ delivery services i believe you can have your primary care provider provide a specific referral for that cnmw. Some women may change to >.

to Tricare Standard if they are within 50 miles of an MTF that has labor & delivery services. I am a doctor – not a TRICARE Rep – so insure you do your homework too.
