Would like some guidance. I am a Tricare Prime beneficiary. Received referral to local Gastric banding surgeon and Doctor said I was well qualified and needed weight loss surgery (Lab Band -my preference). He said we could be in Surgery in late March/early April. His office Insurance Coordinator then stated as a Tricare Prime patient, TRICARE required all weight loss surgeries to complete: Psych eval Nutritionists eval Blood and Thyroid tests Show proof of attending a six-month weight loss program within past three-five years (this was a show stopper and meant no surgery until did six month program. Sept surgery?). My question is does Tricare really require the six month program? RJSu
