Family Strategies Counseling and Mediation partners with TriCare medical insurance to better serve our military and veteran population. TriCare is a health care program for uniformed service members, retirees, and their families. TriCare provides coverage to all beneficiaries, including military marriage counseling.

Does Tricare Pay for Military Marriage Counseling?

As per their insurance policy, TriCare will cover marriage counseling if one member of the couple has symptoms that meet the criteria for a mental health diagnosis. Such as:

All of the above are considered likely factors that contribute to marital dysfunction. In these cases, counseling is viewed as a medical necessity. When a diagnosed spouse or a member of the family takes part in the sessions, it becomes family counseling, which is also coved by TriCare insurance.

Why Us for Military Marriage Counseling?

Family Strategies Counseling and Mediation offers marriage counseling to military families, in addition to a host of other services. We believe in a holistic approach to therapy that aims to consider your whole person. In addition, we retain an expert team of mental health counselors, licensed marriage and family counselors, and faith-based counselors that are eager to help. 

Services We Offer to Military Families

Because we understand the complex issues that military families face, we offer specific services to help. In addition, most of these services TriCare insurance covers. That said, consider working with us if you are struggling with:

Poor Communication Patterns

According to Gottman’s “Four Horseman of Divorce”, hypercriticism is often the first indicator that a marriage is on the rocks. If you and your partner are overly critical of one another, that is a red flag. Hyper criticism is a dangerous pattern to fall into because neither person feels heard.

Mental Health Related Issues

Mental health counseling is available if you have been diagnosed, or suspect that you or your partner may be struggling. Our therapists have a diverse background concerning mental health concerns. Some of these concerns include but are not limited to:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Personality Disorders
  • Mood Disorders

Treating PTSD or Trauma-Related Issues

Trauma-focused therapy is one of the areas we specialize in at Family Strategies Counseling & Mediation. Trauma-informed therapy recognizes and emphasizes understanding how traumatic experiences impact behavioral, emotional, and physical well-being. Many members of our military suffer from a condition described as complex PTSD, which requires slightly different treatment options over those with PTSD. Treatment for complex PTSD can vary, and not every method will work for every person. The most common option is talk therapy, medication, or EMDR.

Strategic Family Therapy

When a marriage is struggling, the rest of the family is likely suffering too. Strategic family therapy combines two major therapeutic theories – strategic therapy and family therapy. This kind of therapy differs from other family therapy strategies in that it is a highly structured method of treatment rather than free forming. The goal is to plan, execute strategically, and measure outcomes to help solve inner-familial problems. 

Conclusion

Family Strategies Counseling and Mediation partners with TriCare medical insurance to better serve our military and veteran population. Because we understand the complex issues that military families face, we have a host of available resources, most of which are covered with TriCare insurance. These services include but are not limited to mental health services, PTSD treatment options, couples counseling, and family therapy.
