Can You Treat PTSD With Tricare Health Insurance?
PTSD Therapy for Tricare Health Insurance Members
Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is one of the most common mental health conditions in the United States. According to the US Department of Veterans Affairs, roughly 6 out of every 10 men and 5 out of every 10 women will experience at least one significant traumatic event throughout their lives. Men and women are liable to experience differing traumatic events – for example, men are more likely to experience trauma as a result of active combat, physical assault, or the witnessing of death or serious injury, and women are more likely to experience sexual assault or ongoing sexual abuse during childhood or adolescence. Sadly, many individuals who are suffering from PTSD do not end up seeking or receiving the help they need, either because they have never been professionally diagnosed or because they are unaware of the countless resources that are available to them. At Voices of Mental Health, our experienced experts have years of experience helping men and women overcome PTSD by putting them into contact with reputable treatment centers that can treat them effectively and on an individual basis.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder – Signs and Symptoms
There are many signs and symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder, the most common and disruptive being:
- Experiencing flashbacks to the traumatic event
- Ongoing nightmares and other sleep-related issues
- Actively avoiding people, places, and things that might remind the individual of the traumatic event
- Emotional numbness
- An inability to connect to other people
- Feeling jumpy and being easily frightened
- Difficulty concentrating or paying attention
- Severe stress responses to flashbacks or other reminders of the traumatic event, like panic attacks and hyperventilation
The good news is that all of these symptoms can be effectively treated with adequate treatment.
PTSD and Tricare Health Insurance
Tricare insurance is a healthcare plan that was specifically developed to help military personnel and veterans (and their immediate family members). Tricare covers more than traditional medical services and hospital visits – because many military veterans suffer from substance abuse and mental health disorders, they also cover many behavioral health services, including trauma and addiction treatment. There are many different treatment approaches when it comes to PTSD, and the most beneficial treatment methods always vary on a person-to-person basis. If an individual has been struggling with a co-occurring disorder, inpatient treatment is always recommended. Many military veterans leave the active service having seen and experienced a range of things that leave a lasting negative impact. Because of this, they are more prone to PTSD – and men and women who struggle with unresolved PTSD are far more likely to engage in self-medication.
The good news is that our comprehensive, dual diagnosis treatment program is in-network with Tricare, meaning that some or all of our services will be covered if you are currently covered through this specific healthcare company. For a no-obligation health insurance benefits check, all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
