TRICARE Hearing Aids
« on: March 14, 2008, 05:54:56 pm »
TRICARE HEARING AIDS UPDATE 01:  Tricare does not cover
 hearing aids for retirees or their family members.  However,
 some military treatment facilities support the Retiree At
 Cost Hearing Aid Purchase Program (RACHAPP) for
 servicemembers in need of hearing aids.
This program allows retired
 service members to purchase hearing aids at government cost.
  At http://www.militaryaudiology.org/rachap/state.html you
 can view facilities along with contact information and
 whether or not the facility provides hearing aids at cost to US
 military retirees. This information is subject to change at
 any time. It is recommended that you contact the
 appropriate facility before incurring significant travel expenses.
 Retirees can use any facility which will accept them; you
 don't need to return to your service affiliation to
 participate in this program. Dependents of military retirees are
 generally ineligible to participate in this program at the
 current time. [Source: NAUS Weekly Update 7 Mar 08 ++]
