2018 Insurance Changes

By admin

1) Optum will no longer be providing the behavioral health network for Tricare effective January 1, 2018.  On Jan 1, 2018. the TRICARE West Region contract is transitioning to a new managed care contractor, Health Net Federal Service (HNFS). Their website is www.tricare-west.com.

2) CHIPA no longer manages the MHN contract.  Maybe now providers will get paid more and faster.

3) Windstone will no longer pay any claim received more than ninety days past the date of service.  Yes!  They don’t pay on time but they expect providers to be.

4) Magellan no longer handles Caloptima contract and providers must be contracted with Caloptima to continue patients’ treatment.
