Behavioral Health Support for Military Families

On November 19, Senators Patty Murray (D-WA) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) introduced amendment 2265 to provide access to behavioral health treatment, including applied behavioral analysis (ABA), to children and adults with developmental disabilities in TRICARE, the military’s health care system.  A similar provision was passed by the House in June.  Behavioral health therapy has been shown to be highly effective for children with significant developmental disabilities.  TRICARE currently provid es limited coverage of ABA under three different programs (for a summary, visit )
