TRICARE Mental Health Rates Announced

A Federal Register notice earlier this month announced per diem rates for both full-day and half-day TRICARE partial hospitalization programs for fiscal year 2015. Rates are effective for services provided on or after Oct. 1, 2014. The notice includes updated regional per diem rates for low-volume mental health providers, the update factor for hospital-specific per diems, the updated cap per diem for high-volume providers, and the beneficiary per diem cost-share amount for low-volume providers.
