TRICARE Update: Autism Care Demo

Update from TRICARE -

The Comprehensive Autism Care Demonstration (ACD) was recently updated to reduce the potential financial burden of applied behavior analysis (ABA) services for non-active duty families. As of October 1, 2015, all ACD cost-shares will match TRICARE Prime and Standard cost-shares for all ABA services provided by authorized ABA supervisors, assistant behavior analysts, and behavior technicians. This change will allow cost-shares to contribute to the annual catastrophic cap for families and eliminates the 10 percent cost-share for assistant behavior analyst and behavior technician services, also known as “tiered” services, significantly reducing the potential financial burden of ABA services for our non-active duty families. The TRICARE ACD covers all TRICARE eligible beneficiaries diagnosed with ASD under a single benefit. For more information about the changes to this benefit, visit the TRICARE Autism Care Demonstration webpage at http://www.tricare.mil/Plans/SpecialPrograms/ACD.aspx.
