The TRICARE Health Plan has announced new reimbursement rates effective April 1, 2016 for applied behavior analysis (ABA) services, which are provided under the Autism Care Demonstration (ACD). TRICARE's ABA coverage and benefits are not changing. The new calculation process ensures the rates are reviewed each year and not frozen for another seven years. For more information on TRICARE's ACD benefit and ABA coverage, visit the TRICARE ACD webpage, or view a TRICARE TV video explaining the benefit. The new rates have been published and can be viewed on the Health.mil website.
