Does Tricare Cover Latisse or Lumigan?

I have Tricare as we are a military family and I just cannot afford $120 a month for this. Just curious if anyone has seen Tricare cover either of these products?

Probably Not

Generally speaking, insurance does not cover treatments or drugs that are used for cosmetic purposes. However. you may want to ask Tricare directly.

So far my Tricare patients have paid for Latisse out-of-pocket. I would be very surprised if any insurance company would pay for essentially a cosmetic product.
