TriWest Serves Community Care Network Regions 4 and 5
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) purchases care in the community to ensure Veterans receive the health care services they need. The new consolidated approach to purchasing this care is through the Community Care Network, or CCN.
TriWest is VA’s third party administrator for CCN Regions 4 and 5.
CCN covers all U.S. states and territories with an established set of regional boundaries aligned to state borders to provide local flexibility and increased access to care. VA relies on the third party administrators to develop and administer regional networks of high-performing, licensed, and contracted health care providers.
On Aug. 6, 2019, VA awarded TriWest a contract to administer the new CCN in Region 4, which includes 13 western states. TriWest began full health care delivery in Region 4 in late August 2020. On Oct. 1, 2020, VA awarded TriWest a contract to administer CCN in Region 5 (Alaska) and began the delivery of health care services in Alaska on April 1, 2021.
TriWest continues to administer the Patient-Centered Community Care (PC3) program in CCN Region 6 at this time.
