Does anyone know anything about practicing on a military base OCONUS such as Okinawa? I am a RN/IBCLC with my own lactation consulting business and I get reimbursed by Tricare. I would only practice out of my home office or in the homes of those on the military base. I was told by another IBCLC that Tricare told her they would not reimburse OCONUS unless local Japanese RN boards were passed. I know there is legislation for a compact for all 50 states and making licensure easier for military spouses but I'm wondering if that would extend to OCONUS locations as well?
OCONUS - Wiktionary
OP I have taken the liberty of defining terms as there maybe folks out there who can give you help with this that are not military.
One suggestion I have is to contact Humana as they administer Tricare for the Feds and see if they can help you put the pieces together.
Moved to government/military nursing.
1. Email the military clinic where you will be PCSing to and ask them.
2. Ask your spouse's sponsor.
3. Try to hook up with another IBCLC military member.
