The answer to whether chiropractic is a TriCare covered service is YES! Unfortunately, it is not covered
for all beneficiaries. This chiropractic service is only available on base and requires a referral from a
primary care physician. This referral process can typically last weeks to even get an appointment
scheduled, much less a actual visit to the military chiropractor. By this time the problem may have gotten
worse or you have simply learned to deal with the pain. To offset this chiropractic coverage discrepancy,
we have developed a program called Chiropractic Express, which we cover later on this page.
Only the active duty soldier is currently covered under the TriCare policy network. This leaves the family
members of the soldiers and military retirees out in the cold when it comes to chiropractic. At this time
they have two choices; pay for chiropractic themselves, 100% out of pocket, or simply do without a
service they very well may need.
The fact that other government run insurance plans such as Medicare and Medicaid cover chiropractic
care without the need of referrals for all their members, frustrates me more. When I think about the
sacrifice the military families make for serving our country it upsets me that they are treated in this way.
I have seen too many spouses care for their families while their soldier spouse is deployed for six
months or even a year. I cannot fathom the thought of being without my family for that extended period of
time. With such sacrifice should come a balance of reward.
We, at May Chiropractic, support many organizations in the fight to have
chiropractic equality for all active duty, their families and military
retirees. These groups work with many members of congress to
promote legislature to ensure chiropractic access to all Tricare
beneficiaries. To date, we have made great progress and many
studies are being done to analyze the benefit of adding chiropractic to
all members of Tricare. Health care for our military personnel and their
families is an issue that deserves the full attention of Congress, the
Department of Defense and Tricare. I urge service members to contact
their elected officials in Washington and share with them the need for
expanded chiropractic benefits.
We also provide free chiropractic care for all active duty and retired
military families at the O’Fallon Community Park during the annual
Salute to Scott Day in the month of June. We have happily aligned
ourselves with the O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce in making this a
day of appreciation to our military community members a great success.
We have developed a program we call Chiropractic Express for our
military families. This program essentially guarantees affordable
chiropractic care without a referral and a no wait policy for treatment.
To make this program a success, we have discounted all our fees for all military members and their
families. As a result, more than forty percent of our practice members are made up of active and retired
military members and their dependants.
I think it says a lot when someone could receive chiropractic care for free, but opt to pay us for the much
better service and caring approach we provide.
