TRICARE Benefit Update for 3D Mammograms

December 26, 2019
3D Breast Tomography Now Covered for USFHP Members. Effective January 1, 2020, TRICARE will allow coverage for digital breast tomosynthesis for screening mammography, also called three-dimensional (3D) mammography. This procedure is covered for all women beginning at age 40. It is also covered for women beginning at age 30 who are at a greater risk for breast cancer. To be considered high risk a member must meet one of several risk factors. To view the list of risk factors visit the TRICARE website

3D mammography is a preventive care benefit and no copay or cost share will apply. Currently, TRICARE requires a preauthorization for this service; however, that may change in the future. 2D mammograms are still covered if preferred by the provider or the beneficiary.
