Does anyone have any idea as to whether or not TRICARE Reserve Select will pay for a DIRECT entry midwife (not a midwife affiliated with a doctor's office or CNM) for a home birth?
they won't. tricare only covers CNMs, unfortunately.

mamadiamond is correct, TRS is just like Tricare Standard, except for the name and the fact that you pay a premium for it. This means the rules are the same, and it will only pay for CNMs. I hope you find a solution or a CNM that meets your needs.
