Going Paperless Raises $85K for Military Families

6/6/2011

PHOENIX — Making the simple switch to electronic statements means military families throughout the country will receive thousands in additional funding to help during a future time of need.

Through TriWest Healthcare Alliance's "Go Green & Give" campaign, more than $85,000 was raised to help four national military charities in their mission of supporting military families. 

All told, more than 17,000 TRICARE West Region households participated in the three-month effort. 

Go Green, TriWest Gives Green

For each of the 17,000 households that chose to Go Green and receive healthcare statements electronically, TriWest agreed to donate $5 to one of four military charities:

"It's great to know that by simply choosing paperless options, our customers were able to help these four outstanding organizations—and ultimately, provide support to the men, women and children who do so much for our country," said TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre, Jr.
