DOD Awards TRICARE T-5 Contracts
On Dec. 22, 2022, the Defense Health Agency announced the Department of Defense (DOD) has awarded the TRICARE West Region contract for T-5, the next generation of TRICARE, to TriWest Healthcare Alliance of Phoenix, AZ. Health care delivery under TRICARE T-5 is expected to start in 2024. The new contract does not change the existing TRICARE benefit, and how beneficiaries get health care won’t change during the transition period. Health Net Federal Services currently performs on the existing TRICARE contract in the West Region, and will continue to serve beneficiaries during the transition period.
TRICARE beneficiaries do not need to take any actions at this time. The Defense Health Agency will launch an extensive and comprehensive communications campaign with TRICARE beneficiaries keeping them informed of coming changes during the year-long transition. Those interested in the progress should bookmark the web page www.tricare.mil/changes, sign up for email alerts from TRICARE, and continue to visit this page for up-to-date information.
