Reminder: Annual Autism Care Demonstration Training for ABA Providers Due April 24

Thursday, March 28, 2024

All Autism Corporate Services Providers (ACSP) and sole applied behavior analysis (ABA) providers participating in the Autism Care Demonstration (ACD) must complete an annual ACD training per TRICARE Operations Manual, Chapter 18, Section 4. You are receiving this email because Health Net Federal Services, LLC (HNFS) assigned you this training in January. Please refer to the email from “TRICARE West Online Learning” that contained a link to the training module and access instructions.

Important: The 2024 training due date is April 24. Providers required to complete the training who miss this deadline will be subject to a 10% penalty applied to all authorized adaptive behavior services (ABS) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) code claims beginning on day 91. This penalty will be removed once you complete the training; however, the penalty will remain in place for the days you were not in compliance. 

Training Highlights

The annual training provides an overview of the ACD, including:

  • Eligibility and diagnosis 
  • Referrals and authorizations
  • Medical documentation requirements
  • Claims
  • Billing 
  • Audits
