Veteran Services: Honored To Do Our Part
Fulfilling Our Nation’s Obligation to Veterans
TriWest is honored and humbled to administer the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Community Care program to provide quality and timely health care to our Nation’s Veterans.
Tens-of-thousands of VA employees deliver care to millions of Veterans through VA’s network of 154 Medical Centers; 800 Community-Based Outpatient Clinics; 126 Nursing Homes; and 35 Domiciliary facilities. Yet, despite the reach of this vast network, there are times when VA turns to medical professionals in the community and asks them to serve too. There are currently two programs to meet these needs. This is where TriWest comes in.
The Veterans Affairs Community Care Program
With the Community Care program, VA can call on TriWest to help coordinate Veteran care from a health care provider in the community. Every one of the 1,000,000 health care providers in the TriWest network has to meet VA-required quality standards to ensure that Veterans always receive the highest quality care. Additionally, our health care providers make certain that Veterans’ VA medical records remain up to date by returning information about the care and treatment they received to VA.
Veterans are eligible for this program if they have been informed by their local VA medical facility or if they’ve received a call or a letter from TriWest.
