Cognitive rehabilitation therapy (CRT) is an umbrella term that refers to a collection of therapy techniques that may be used to help improve an individual's cognitive (i.e. thinking) abilities after a brain injury. TRICARE does not cover CRT as a stand-alone therapy. However, TRICARE offers a comprehensive rehabilitation benefit that includes occupational therapy (OT), physical therapy (PT), speech therapy and behavioral health services when ordered by a physician as part of a comprehensive individual rehabilitation treatment plan. Individual therapists commonly incorporate CRT techniques into covered services which are reimbursed under each separate therapy. For more information, visit the Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy webpage on the TRICARE website. For specific coverage details, contact your regional contractor.
