TriWest Serves Community Care Network Regions 4 and 5
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) purchases care in the community to ensure Veterans receive the health care services they need. The new consolidated approach to purchasing this care is through the Community Care Network, or CCN.
TriWest is VA’s third party administrator for CCN Regions 4 and 5.
CCN covers all U.S. states and territories with an established set of regional boundaries aligned to state borders to provide local flexibility and increased access to care. VA relies on the third party administrators to develop and administer regional networks of high-performing, licensed, and contracted health care providers.
On Oct. 1, 2020, VA awarded TriWest a contract to administer CCN in Region 5 (Alaska) with start of health care launching in Kodiak on April 1, 2021, and full delivery of health care services in the entire state of Alaska on June 15, 2021.
TriWest continues to administer the Patient-Centered Community Care (PC3) program in CCN Region 6 at this time.
