Advocacy

There are many caregivers that face end of life decisions for children. Home hospice care may support keeping children at home who are facing a terminal illness. Unfortunately, Tricare military policies do not support military families who receive hospice care to also receive curative home care. The Defense Health Agency (DHA) that oversees TRICARE policy is trying to identify families who could choose home hospice care but gave it up to receive curative treatment. Contact moaaspouse@moaa.org for more information if you fall within this group.
