Clarification on Recent ACD Participation Agreement Mailing
Thursday, July 15, 2021
Per guidelines outlined in the TRICARE Operations Manual, Chapter 18, Section 4, Autism Care Demonstration (ACD) Corporate Services Providers (ACSPs) and sole providers must sign new ACD Participation Agreements and return them to regional contractors by Aug. 1.
Health Net Federal Services, LLC (HNFS) began the process of reaching out to providers in May with updated participation agreements. This notice is to clarify a recent mailing containing TRICARE West Region ACD Participation Agreements that was sent to East Region providers.
In order to be reimbursed for services provided to a TRICARE West beneficiary, you must have a TRICARE West Participation Agreement on file. If you are an East Region provider who will not be treating TRICARE West beneficiaries, you may ignore the communication. However, if you believe you may treat a TRICARE West beneficiary in the future, you must sign and return the materials.
