PC3 Ended March 31, 2021, in Region 4
Patient-Centered Community Care (PC3) ended in Region 4 on March 31, 2021. Ongoing care delivery is now provided through the VA Community Care Network (CCN).
Effective April 1, 2021:
- New authorizations for care must be under CCN.
- Providers should not submit a Request for Service (RFS) to continue care under PC3. Only CCN contracted providers may send an RFS to VA for a new approved referral/authorization under CCN if they have not already received an updated authorization.
Are You in the TriWest Network?
VA requires all providers to be fully contracted, credentialed, and in-network with TriWest to participate in CCN and continue receiving referrals for Veterans under CCN. If you have not signed a CCN contract to continue to care for Veterans, contact TriWest at 866-286-4174.
If Veteran care has not yet been transitioned to CCN, direct the Veteran to contact their local VA Medical Center to request an extension of care under CCN if ongoing care is needed.
- TriWest will continue to pay PC3 claims on approved referrals for dates of service through the authorization expiration date or March 31, 2021, whichever comes first.
- Region 4 providers should submit all PC3 claims to WPS Military and Veterans Health (WPS MVH) within 30 days for timely reimbursement. To check a PC3 claims reimbursement status, login to Availity to search or call 877-CCN-TRIW (226-8749) to speak to a Claims Customer Service Representative.
TriWest thanks you for supporting the important mission to care for our nation’s Veterans. We value your partnership.
