    EFMP and Triwest?

    Advertisements
    My son was just diagnosed with autism. Dr. said it was a mild case, but, I don't know what they consider mild.

    So, we enrolled in EFMP. But, how do they base it? Is it off a point system? I'm just trying to figure this all out.

    We should find out Monday or Tuesday what cat. he's put into.

    He is in speech and OT as well. Not sure if that takes effect as well.

    Do you mean what EFMP category or what autistic category?

    Mild Autism is when they are more functional that extreme. My sister has two autistic children, one is mild one is extreme (the boy). The boy used to bang his head on walls, pinch people, pinch himself, hit, scream, etc. The girl didn't do any of that. She sits very quietly, doesn't speak and just does her thing.

    So, I believe the mild would be their behavior and what functions they can/can't do... if that makes sense.

    usually mild funtioning autism will rate a 3-4 in the EFMP catagories- but it has nothing to do with tricare. they are completely seperate.

    I am a little worried. My son is moderate-severe autism and also diagnosed with Mood disorder NOS and Disruptive Behavior Disorder NOS. Our EFMP was approved, we were given priority housing, but I was never told about categories or what category he is in.
    Maybe I need to make a call...

    To find out what category your son is in, you'll need to contact the EFMP coordinator on the base your at.

    I see that your in Oceanside, San Diego is one of the category locations. You are fine, no matter what category your son is in.
