Today Advanced Brain Technologies (ABT) announces that it is now an approved provider for the TRICARE Extended Care Health Option (ECHO), making its innovative neuroscience based music programs for brain training available to qualifying beneficiaries with special needs, which can be covered with little to no out of pocket expense.
The Extended Care Health Option (ECHO) provides financial assistance to beneficiaries with special needs for an integrated set of services and supplies. The following beneficiaries who are diagnosed with moderate or severe mental retardation, a serious physical disability, or an extraordinary physical or psychological condition may qualify for ECHO; active duty family members, family members of activated National Guard/Reserve members, family members who are covered under the Transitional Assistance Management Program, children or spouses of former service members who are victims of abuse and qualify for the Transitional Compensation Program, family members of deceased active duty sponsors while they are considered “transitional survivors.” Children may remain eligible for ECHO beyond the usual age limits in some circumstances.
Advanced Brain Technologies is working closely with its extensive national network of trained providers serving US military families, and is also assisting military families with benefits information directly. Our family advisors will help you to understand if a child qualifies for ECHO, and then explain how to easily get set up to receive their benefits including the suite of ABT neuroscience based music programs for brain training which offer support to children with autism, ADHD, and qualifying mental, learning or physical disabilities.
April D. Christoperson, OTR/L, Director of Occupational Therapy, The Shandy Clinic , Colorado Springs, Colorado said “The ECHO program has opened so many doors for our active duty military members and their families! With the option of using ECHO funding for The Listening Program®, inTime, Sleep Genius and other Advanced Brain Technologies (ABT) products, our therapists have been able to recommend home programming options for special needs children that previously put a large financial burden on the family. Now, when a child is eligible for ECHO funding it is so easy to obtain the equipment and start the training in clinic with our providers – ensuring a seamless transition to in-home use. We are so grateful for the support and training that ABT offers our clinicians and families – what a blessing!”
Advanced Brain Technologies solutions are GSA and TRICARE approved, and offered to active duty military members, their family members, and veterans through clinics, military and VA hospitals across the United States. Visit our U.S. Military Resource Center
