[FONT=”Microsoft Sans Serif”]I found this link: [url]http://www.tricare.mil/mybenefit/jsp/Medical/IsItCovered.do?kw=Stem+Cell+Transplants[/url]

Notice that they say, “will not cover SCT for unproven conditions…”

I would still try as I have seen many get it covered even with that statement. Perhaps at this juncture, and considering the cost of IVIG, etc.– they will consider what’s been done as proof enough.

Best of luck and do let us know–

Incidentally, NW doesn’t recommend you contact your insurer and tell them all right up front. They kind of guide you through the wording and when to say what. You may want to hold back, apply 1st and then let them walk you through the process.

My dad is retired military and i understand Tricare to be one of the best insurers around. I’d be very interested in knowing how they handle this one with its ambiguity…

Best of luck.
