ICEA Birth Doula Certification Recognized to Become a TRICARE-Authorized Provider
ICEA is honored to be recognized as an international leader in the field of childbirth professionals by the United States Department of Defense. Selected out of over 150 organizations and based on strict criteria, ICEA’s Certified Birth Doula program was recognized as one of five certifying programs for birth doulas desiring to become TRICARE-authorized providers. Beginning January 1, 2022, there will be a “demonstration” period within the United States and The District of Columbia to determine the appropriateness and feasibility of making doula coverage a permanent benefit under the TRICARE program. ICEA looks forward to our certified birth doulas supporting TRICARE beneficiaries during this demonstration period and beyond.
