Intensive Outpatient Program

TRICARE covers Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs). 
You may qualify for an IOP if you:
  • Have a psychiatric or substance use disorder 
  • Don’t need to be in a hospital full-time
  • Need stabilization, symptom reduction, or prevention of relapse
  • Need treatment for partially stabilized mental health disorders 
  • Need a higher level of care than you're currently receiving in outpatient care
  • Are transitioning from an:
    • Inpatient program
    • Psychiatric residential treatment center
    • Partial hospitalization
    • Regular outpatient services
Check with your regional contractor to see if you need to get prior authorization.
