Does anyone use air purifiers and did health insurance cover it for Asthma? I'm just wondering what the odds that tricare will pay for Frederick's purifier.

Also, what are good brands to check out for his room?

We haven't asked. Although with tricare you never know. I hear about stuff all the time that they cover that I didn't know about. I would talk to your dr. I think if they deem it medically neccessary Tricare will cover. Good luck.
We don't have one so I am not sure about brands. I think there is another lady that used to post that got one. I could be wrong though.

We use Idylis with HEPA filters. Our insurance didn't cover it but everything is different with each insurance. It is worth asking about. Make sure you get one with a HEPA filter otherwise it is only going to look useful but it really isn't.

Thanks for that warning. His allergist/asthma dr said we need to get one for his room. So when the nurse calls me back about the question I asked earlier, i'll ask her to see if the dr will write a prescription for it, and see if tricare will cover it first and foremost.
