In order to provide ABA services to TRICARE beneficiaries, ABA providers must be TRICARE-certified. TRICARE recognizes three certification types: Assistant Behavior Analyst, Behavior Analyst and Behavior Technician. Once certified, providers can apply to join the TRICARE East network.

Autism Care Corporate Services Providers (ACSP)

Note: Individually-authorized ABA supervisors who are behavior analysts should complete the Individual Behavior Analyst Certification Application and do not have to complete the ACSP application.
