TRICARE Publishes Interim ABA Benefit

Families Can Begin Submitting Claims for ABA During Interim Benefit Period

August 10, 2012

If you are TRICARE eligible, read the entire TRICARE manual change, it includes diagnostic codes and circumstances under which ABA will be reimbursed during this interim period. This change is retroactive, eligible claims dating back to March 5, 2010, may be reimbursed under this action.
 
If you are not sure whether you qualify, call your TRICARE regional contractor.
ALL TRICARE telephone contact numbers can be found HERE.
 
Refer to the TRICARE manual change, be patient and persistent in speaking with TRICARE claims personnel, they may not yet be aware. If you familiarize yourself with the information in the manual, you should be able to get the answers you need in regards to your own coverage.
 
TRICARE has a total of 60 days from the date of judgement (July 26, 2012) to appeal. Advocates and organizations are working hard to pursuade DoD/TRICARE not to appeal this landmark case.
