TRICARE West for Providers

Five Things to Know

  1. Providers who have not yet received their 1099 tax form or need a replacement should call the 1090 Tax Line. HNFS is unable to assist with tax-related questions or requests.  

  2. It's easy to verify eligibility for your TRICARE patients. Log in to use our Patient Eligibility & Deductible tool. 

  3. Questions about which Prime beneficiaries are enrolled to your practice? Log in to view PCM enrollee rosters using our secure PCM Enrollee Roster tool. 

  4. Learn to easily submit referral and authorization requests: We have live webinars, a video tutorial and printable user guides. Don't forget: Use our Prior Authorization, Referral and Benefit Tool to first verify requirements.  

  5. Check credentialing status online. If you asked to join our network, check credentialing status using the individual (Type 1) or facility/ancillary (Type 2) National Provider Identifier (NPI). Credentialing may take 60–90 days.
