Breastfeeding supplies

  • TRICARE will reimburse for 100 breast-milk storage bags every 30 days. If you require more than 100 in a 30-day period, you will need a prescription or Certificate of Medical Necessity (CMN) from your doctor. If you buy bags in bulk, TRICARE can only reimburse at 100 bags every 30 days, and cannot pay for future dates of service.
  • Replacement supplies cannot be billed on the same day as the breast pump. When purchasing a breast pump, you will receive a kit which includes all supplies, including an initial set of breast milk bags. TRICARE will reimburse one kit per birth event. Breast pump supplies can be ordered before delivery, starting at 27 weeks of pregnancy.
