Today TriWest Healthcare Alliance learned it was not awarded the contract to continue to manage the 21-state TRICARE West Region for the Department of Defense (DoD). This announcement comes after TriWest secured the contract in July 2009.
“We are extremely disappointed that the Department of Defense chose to reverse their decision. For the past 16 years, we have worked tirelessly and with the highest levels of respect to meet the healthcare needs of West Region military families who have very much become our family,” said David J. McIntyre, Jr., TriWest’s President and CEO.
Consistent with federal regulations, TriWest expects to learn more about the government’s decision in an upcoming debriefing. At this time, we will seek to ascertain whether it was appropriate and fair, and to determine our future course of action.
The TRICARE West Region includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, western Texas, Washington and Wyoming.
