Proposed Collection; Comment Request, 8838-8839 [2012-3498]

Download as PDF sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 8838 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 31 / Wednesday, February 15, 2012 / Notices August 2009 through August 2011, with the majority (89%) occurring in the West region. Of these calls, 1888 calls were listed as either ‘‘initial’’ or ‘‘intake’’ with 3098 listed as ‘‘followup,’’ and 123 calls were not coded for contact type. Thirty-five percent (35%) of callers reported themselves as the sponsor, 62% reported as a dependent, and 3% did not report relationship. These results indicate the demonstration has not been utilized to the extent anticipated. At a cost of approximately $3 million annually across all three TRICARE regions, the demonstration’s goal of improving beneficiary access to behavioral health care by incorporating Web-based video technology has not been realized and thus not viable from a financial perspective. The termination of TRIAP in March 2012 will not cause a void in the availability of non-medical counseling services for Service members and their families. Military OneSource (MOS) offers a robust and popular Employee Assistance Program model of nonmedical counseling service to provide Service members and their families in both the continental United States and overseas with an avenue for private, non-reportable discussion of personal life issues. Issues such as family difficulties and pressures, crisis intervention, anxiety, self-esteem, loneliness, and critical life decisions can be discussed on a one-to-one basis in the context of a confidential relationship with a professional counselor. Telephonic or face-to-face counseling is available 24/7 by contacting the MOS 1–800 call center who maintains a National Network of trained, experienced, and credentialed counselors. In addition, MOS is currently pursuing integration of video technology and software capability such as Skype or iChat to their non-medical counseling service by early 2012. By terminating the TRIAP Demonstration and integrating video technology into the MOS non-medical counseling service, the Department is responsibly managing costs, streamlining and eliminating duplication of services, and making it easier for Service members and their families to find assistance through one convenient toll free number. The TRICARE Management Activity will work with MOS to develop a communication plan and ensure a seamless transition of Web-based video counseling from TRICARE to MOS.
