Gender Dysphoria Services

TRICARE covers hormone therapy and psychological counseling for gender dysphoria. Gender Dysphoria is a condition in which a person's sex assigned at birth is not congruent with their gender identity. TRICARE generally doesn't cover surgery for gender dysphoria. However, active duty service members may request a waiver for medically-necessary, gender affirming surgery.
