Home Health Care Benefit
Home Health Care Benefit provides part-time and intermittent nursing to beneficiaries that do not qualify for skilled care through other TRICARE programs such as the Extended Care Health Option (ECHO) Program.

TRICARE Comprehensive Autism Care Demonstration (Autism Care Demo)
The TRICARE Comprehensive Autism Care Demonstration (Autism Care Demo) covers applied behavioral analysis (ABA) services for all eligible TRICARE beneficiaries diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). 

Individual Case Management Program for Persons with Extraordinary Conditions (ICMP-PEC)
Also, known as the Individual Case Management Program, was a discretionary program for TRICARE beneficiaries with extraordinary medial or psychological conditions. ICMP began March 1, 1999 and was terminated December 28, 2001. 

For beneficiaries in the ICMP-PEC, payment will continue as if the ICMP-PEC were still in effect for home health care or custodial care services provided to beneficiary that would otherwise be excluded from coverage under the new Home Health Agency Prospective Payment System (HHA PPS), the ECHO, or the Skilled Nursing Facility Prospective Payment System (SNF PPS), until those services are no longer required or can be appropriately provided by other TRICARE programs.
