Childbirth and Breastfeeding Support Demonstration

TRICARE allows for certified labor doulas, certified lactation consultants and certified lactation counselors – currently excluded as TRICARE-authorized provider types under the regular TRICARE benefit – to provide reimbursable care to TRICARE beneficiaries under its Childbirth and Breastfeeding Support Demonstration (CBSD). This is a five-year demonstration that started on Jan. 1, 2022.
