Our Services – What We Do
Olive Branch Autism Services provides outcome measure assessment testing for individuals with autism. This testing is required for ongoing participation in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) treatment for those insured by Health Net Federal Services/TRICARE. Current outcome measure assessments completed are the Vineland-3, Social Responsiveness Scale 2nd Ed (SRS-2), Parent Stress Index (PSI) and Stress Index for Parents of Adolescents (SIPA). These assessments are completed online, electronically. There is no need to schedule an appointment.
Outcome Measure Testing Information
At Olive Branch we work closely with TRICARE and Health Net Federal Services (HNFS) to quickly and efficiently complete needed outcome measure assessments for military families. All beneficiaries participating in the Autism Care Demonstration must receive an outcome evaluation at the start of ABA services and every 6 months to 1 year thereafter while receiving ABA services.
The Vineland, 3rd Edition (Vineland-3) and Social Responsiveness Scale, Second Edition (SRS-2) are required annually and the Parent Stress Index (PSI) or Stress Index for Parents of Adolescents (SIPA) is required every 6 months. The beneficiary’s physician primary care manager (P-PCM) or a TRICARE-authorized specialized autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosing provider no longer needs to submit the referral for the outcome measures. Authorization for service will come directly from HNFS to Olive Branch Autism Services. Once we have received authorization for service, we work quickly to complete these needed assessments.
