Procedures v. Tricare

You would not believe what a chore it has become to decide which type of reconstruction is best for me! There are different types of mastectomies and different types of reconstruction. Not like Mr. Potato Head where you can take one off and snap a new one on.

Now that I can't do anything for a while, I guess I should take this time to make sure I am making the best decisions for me. The problem I am having is that I can't figure out how to determine which doctors do which procedures. I can bet that Tricare won't let me travel the world for consultations, so I need to use as many resources as I can without actually being in an office.

There are so many different choices, but what will Tricare cover? I mean, yeah, they cover which ever reconstruction I chose, but are there any doctors in the network that actually do what I decide? That would be my luck, I finally cement something in my mind and an then Tricare doesn't cover any doctors that do it!

I will continue to freely research without restrictions from insurance... hopefully, I won't be disappointed.
