Working with TRICARE

Being a TRICARE provider means that we are helping the families of America’s heroes.  We are one of the few child and adolescent facilities that are contracted with all three divisions of TRICARE:  TRICARE NorthTRICARE West, and TRICARE South.  We are also authorized by TRICARE Overseas to provide treatment for dependents of service members stationed outside United States borders.  We have an ever-expanding focus and are dedicated to serving military families in their time of need.

TRICARE Benefits

Lakeland’s treatment clinic in Missouri is centrally located for easy access from all areas of the United States.  Lakeland will help with transportation costs for admission and discharge as well as the required monthly face-to-face family sessions.  If you are a military family in need of acute or residential services, please contact us so we can discuss the benefits provided through TRICARE and how Lakeland Behavioral Health System can meet your needs.
