Tricare Doula Coverage

The Loving Cedar, LLC Doula Services now is a proud non-network provider for Tricare in the Charleston Metropolitan Area.

What non-network means for you as a beneficiary:

 You will likely pay out of pocket for services and be reimbursed by Tricare when rendered. You will likely follow the fees and payment schedules outlined in our Birth Doula Services Contract. After the last postpartum visit, I will create an itemized bill you can submit to Tricare for reimbursement.


My specific bill will include the dates and location codes for all prenatal/postpartum visits and continuous labor support during the birth. 


The allowable reimbursement fees :
•Up to six antepartum and postpartum visits at a rate of  $52.50 per visit. Visits are untimed, but only one visit is allowed per day. 
•Continuous labor support at a rate of up to $780.00 regardless of the length of time and outcome.

To get reimbursed for doula services, you must:
•Be at least 20 weeks pregnant upon your first prenatal visit
•Be enrolled in Tricare Prime or Tricare Select
•Plan on giving birth with a Tricare-authorized provider
•Choose in-person labor support.  Prenatal and postpartum visits may be in-person or virtual 
•Use Tricare as your primary insurance
If you do not meet the above requirements, Tricare will NOT reimburse you, and you will be financially responsible for any services provided.
