The Provisional Coverage Program covers some emerging services and supplies.
What is FAI?
FAI is a condition that affects the hip joint. It occurs when some portion of the soft tissue around the hip socket gets pinched or compressed. It causes pain that limits a person's mobility.
What is the provisional coverage for treatment of FAI?
TRICARE covers surgical treatment for FAI when you meet certain criteria. We cover surgical treatment that's open, arthroscopic, or a combined approach. The goal of the hip surgery is to improve the hip joint range of motion and improve or alleviate pain by restoring normal anatomy.
