As important as it is to have a network of trained civilian behavior health providers in every community, Service Members and their families must also have a way to pay for those services. Thus, TRICARE recruitment is a key element of CSSP’s Behavioral Health initiative.
A significant number of Behavioral Health Professionals were added to the TRICARE Network as a direct result of the AHEC Trainings, representing an increase of approximately 12-14%. According to the NC TRICARE Network provider list, there are now some 800 BHPs in NC that take TRICARE.
Carolinas Rehabilitation also became a TRICARE network provider as a direct result of CSSP TBI training.
Additionally, CSSP provides information and links for health care providers interested in TRICARE participation in the Behavioral Health section of this site. Click here for more information.
