Needing to file for reimbursement of a breast pump or breastfeeding supplies through TRICARE? TRICARE has added a payment cap for manual and standard electric breast pumps. All related supplies needed for the operation of the breast pump are included in the cap amount. As of March 2019, TRICARE pays $312.84. In addition, TRICARE currently reimburses for up to
90 breast milk storage bags per month.
Lactation Connection is here to meet your specific needs as a TRICARE user. We have breast pump bundles that include much needed accessories and do not exceed your reimbursement allotment. We have also added a specific bundle of the alloted 90 breast milk storage bags which is the standard allotment for reimbursment through TRICARE per month.
