Is the PSI-4 approved by TRICARE’s Autism Care Demonstration (ACD) program?
The Parenting Stress Index™, Fourth Edition Short Form is approved by TRICARE. Under the Autism Care Demonstration (ACD), every six months, applied behavior analysis (ABA) providers must submit PSI-4-SF scores for all enrolled beneficiaries, ages 12 years and 11 months and younger. PSI-4-SF scores are not part of the treatment planning process; however, ABA providers can use these scores to identify available resources and enhance the overall support provided to families of beneficiaries diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Also approved is the SIPA for individuals ages 11 years through 19 years and 11 months. For beneficiaries ages 11-12 years at the time of authorization/reauthorization, either the PSI-4-SF or SIPA will be accepted.
The PDDBI and the SRS-2 are also part of the Autism Care Demonstration program.
