Anybody know if tricare will pay for breast reduction if your breast size is causing you pain I have always been larger up top F but after I had my daughter I am now a 40 H and my arms and shoulders ache alot I am not breastfeeding and they have already went down as much as I think they will I am trying to loose weight and hopefully that will help but they are so freakin heavy anyways if anyone knows let me know.

you have to go to your primary care provider 1st about the issue. then that person will send a request to tricare for you to get a referral to a plastic surgeon for a consultation. then the plastic surgeon will send a request to tricare to have the surgery done then you'll get a letter in the mail saying weather they approve it or not. i went through this a wile back but not to get a reduction. the whole process takes a few months. if its a medical issue they should pay for it

I think it does actually. I had a friend get a b**b job because she was insecure about being so small. They also pay for lipo if you are really uncomfortable soin your situation, I would definitely look into it! Good luck!
