TRICARE offers several services under the basic TRICARE benefit for beneficiaries with special needs:
- Applied Behavioral Analysis
- Cancer Clinical Trials
- Durable Medical Equipment
- Home Health Care
- Hospice Care
- Mental Health Care
- Skilled Nursing Facility Care
TRICARE also has several special programs that provide services beyond the basic TRICARE benefit for beneficiaries with special needs.
NOTE: Long term care isn't covered. TRICARE (and Medicare) don't cover long term care--services that assist in the activities of daily living. You may purchase long term care insurance from a private insurer, and you may qualify for the Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program.
