Tricare stays the same for active duty for children with autism

Tricare, the military's healthcare provider, will *not change coverage requirements for active duty children with Autism.

The changes come after military families expressed outrage over tougher requirements that were set to go into effect next week.
This year,  lawmakers voted to add non-active duty members to coverage and that prompted Tricare to mandate strict requirements for everyone.
But now Tricare says active duty families will see no changes.
However non active duty families will have to submit to tougher requirements to get therapy covered for their children.
