Regenerative Medicine Therapy Now Covered By Tricare
If you are suffering from joint pain and have Tricare insurance there's an option other than just having to live with the pain.
The U.S. Government has made a decision to invest in you.
They don't want you in pain, and to be honest it's probably for selfish reasons (more on that in a second).
Do you know that the cost to take someone from brand new through boot camp is over $70,000?
Or how about getting an officer through one of the Academies... $350K+?
Special Forces... $500K+ in training...
They've made an investment in you and they don't want you to leave (or pay for expensive surgeries later in your life).
It's really all about the numbers (the money) for them.
The average duration from a minor knee arthroscopic surgery to discharge is 19 months for joint related injuries. So let's say you are experiencing joint pain that may turn into Osteoarthritis. You may need a hip, or a knee replaced (a $40K+ surgery) at 45 years old. That may be good for 10-15 years and you'll need it replaced again, and again...
You get it, the bills add up quickly and the government has made a decision to help prevent all of that.
Currently, they are running a test program (who knows how long it will last), of a regenerative medicine therapy.
It's a super easy procedure that only takes a few minutes and is about as painful as a flu shot. No one needs to take care of you... you come in, get the shot and go home.
After about 90 days you come back in and we check up and see how it's all going.
These shot normally cost thousands of dollars EACH! But right now it's covered by Tricare.
