Payment for Maternity Care for Air Force Member
B-189498: Aug 29, 1977
- Full Report:
An accounting and finance officer, Bolling Air Force Base, questioned whether payment may be made for medical services rendered in a civilian medical facility in connection with the birth of a child to a member who had become pregnant during a period of active duty. Regulations do not authorize payment for maternity care received in civilian facilities, and pregnancy is not included under 10 U.S.C. 8721 as a disease which would allow for payment.
