Cholesterol Testing

TRICARE covers age specific, periodic lipid panels as recommended by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.

The current recommendation can be found in the Third Report of the Expert Panel on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol in Adults (see section III–6 or page 92 of the PDF).

Disclaimer:

This A-Z list of topics is not all inclusive. TRICARE covers most inpatient and outpatient care that is medically necessary and considered proven. However, there are special rules or limits on certain types of care, while other types of care are not covered at all.
