TriWest Agrees to Administer PC3 and Veterans Choice Program Nationwide for U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Through Stand Up of Next Contracts

Phoenix, Arizona (October 2, 2018) – The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has asked TriWest Healthcare Alliance – one of two VA contractors administering the Patient-Centered Community Care (PC3) and Veterans Choice Program (VCP) for Veterans – to step in and help bridge the gap in services due to Health Net Federal Services no longer administering these programs in its designated regions of the country. Health Net’s contract expired on September 30, 2018. TriWest will expand services to cover all regions to help ensure that Veterans will have ready access to community care when needed until the next generation of community care contracts – Community Care Networks (CCN) – are awarded and implemented.

“We are humbled that VA has asked us to again scale the cliff in support of our nation’s heroes so that Veterans will soon have the gaps in access to care eliminated during this transitional period,” said David McIntyre, President and CEO of TriWest Healthcare Alliance. “We stand by VA’s commitment to provide access to community care when it is unable to provide care timely or conveniently, and we are confident in our ability to successfully and seamlessly transition into the new regions. It has been a privilege to work collaboratively with VA over the past five years to provide Veterans in half the country with access to community-based health care, having now facilitated nearly 10 million appointments for care with our network of over 200,000 community providers. We stand firm in our commitment to support VA as it seeks to fulfill the nation’s promise to its warriors and will not rest until the network is ready to go and appointing and claims services are set up and operational. We will stand up the first regions by December 7, in honor of our nation’s World War II Veterans, and will be fully operating in all regions by the end of January 2019 so that all Veterans will be afforded the care they have earned.”
