A number of EIA services, such as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), have been introduced to treat ASD. Currently ABA is the only EIA service accepted within the Military Health System (MHS) as having been shown to reduce or eliminate specific problem behaviors and teach new skills to children with ASD. ABA therapy is provided by TRICARE-authorized providers as a Special Education benefit under the Extended Care Health Option (ECHO).
Through TRICARE reimbursement for EIA services is delivered by paraprofessionals, known as EIA Tutors. These paraprofessionals deliver care under the strict supervision of TRICARE-authorized licensed or certified providers.
Individual therapy is covered under the Demonstration; group EIA sessions are not a TRICARE benefit. The maximum benefit through both the Demonstration and the ECHO program may not exceed $36,000 per beneficiary per fiscal year beginning on October 1st of each year.
