Residential Treatment for Autism: Apply Through TRICARE

TRICARE Helps Military Families Pay for Residential Treatment for Autism

Springbrook is proud to support military service members, their families, and veterans who need services from a residential autism behavior treatment center. That’s why we have worked hard to become an Internationally Certified TRICARE Network Provider and to maintain that certification over the years. Even better, as a TRICARE certified EMF, we work closely with your caseworker to make sure that you, and your family, get the help that you need.

How It Works: Springbrook Makes TRICARE Referrals Simple


All appointments with our residential behavioral ABA treatment program for children with autism are referral-based. After your child with behavioral issues has received an autism diagnosis from an approved provider, you will get authorization from your TRICARE case manager to pursue treatment.

At Springbrook, we work with military families frequently and thoroughly understand the military lifestyle. Our goal with the TRICARE program is to make your life easier, both before and during treatment. Our account specialists will work hand-in-hand with your TRICARE case manager to make sure that you are meeting all of the requirements for your child’s treatment to be covered, reducing your overall out-of-pocket costs.

Our doctors and therapists involve you, as the parent, directly to establish a proper treatment plan for your child and make sure to keep you updated about progress each week. We know that it’s difficult to send your child with autism to a residential treatment program for behavioral problems, especially if you’re deployed, and we want to make the experience comfortable and positive for the entire family. We also partner with local organizations, like the Ronald McDonald House, to schedule free accommodations and other resources for military families who want to visit their child while they are with us.
