Lawmakers want DoD to study whether Tricare may cover horse therapy
from Air Force Times
The family of Kaitlyn Samuels, 16, and many other family memnbers with special needs were hoping Congress would pass a law requiring Tricare to cover hippotherapy — physical therapy conducted on horseback. In April, two House legislators introduced a bill that would bolster Tricare's "therapeutic exercise" coverage to include physical therapy treatment on any platform deemed helpful by a therapist, including "a horse, balance board, bolster and bench," according to the bill.
