Become a Non-Network Provider
Non-network providers do not have signed agreements with Health Net Federal Services, LLC (HNFS) and are, therefore, considered “out of network.” Providers may choose to participate on a case-by-case basis.
In addition to meeting state regulatory board licensing and/or certification requirements, non-network providers must also meet TRICARE policy requirements.
Note: TRICARE Prime beneficiaries must have approval from HNFS to seek care from non-network providers.
There are two types of non-network providers: participating and nonparticipating.
- Participating providers may choose to participate on a by-claim basis. They agree to file claims for TRICARE beneficiaries, accept payment directly from TRICARE and accept the TRICARE allowable charge as in full for their services.
- Nonparticipating providers do not agree to accept the claim-TRICARE allowable charge or file claims for TRICARE beneficiaries. They have the legal right to charge beneficiaries up to 15 percent above the TRICARE allowable charge payment for services.
- Single case agreements (SCAs) are only used in very limited and unique circumstances and do not apply to applied behavior analysis (ABA) providers.
