Tricare Delays Autism Service Reduction

Tricare announced earlier this month it would delay until 2015 a reduction in the reimbursement level for some autism services, pending the results of an independent study.According to the Department of Defense, the independent study, conducted by Rand Corp., will determine the prevailing rate for the services.Tricare is expected to postpone the 46-percent pay cut for board-certified behavior analysts or BCBAs until April 20, which means analysts — who previously were paid $125 per hour — will only be paid $68 per hour after the reduction, according to the DoD.
