Notice Regarding Baby Formula

Updated May 20, 2022: The Defense Health Agency is always concerned about the health, wellness and safety of all our beneficiaries. Currently during this infant formula shortage our military pediatricians are discussing with parents the best recommendations to fulfill their baby’s health and nutrition needs.  And while TRICARE covers formulas and vitamins for infants with metabolic disorders, TRICARE does not cover regular baby formula for otherwise-healthy infants. TRICARE also does not directly ship baby formula to beneficiaries. Parents with children who have a medical need for specialized formula should work with their pediatrician, Primary Care Manager (PCM) or specialist to identify medically appropriate and safe feeding alternatives in the case that the formula they need is unavailable.
