Pacific Health Services have new
TRICARE Partner beginning July 1st
HONOLULU--Please join me in welcoming TriWest Healthcare Alliance Corporation, our new TRICARE partner, to the Tripler Ohana.
TriWest officially assumes responsibility as the TRICARE contractor July 1st but TriWest staff members have been busy transitioning with their Healthnet counterparts for several weeks. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Healthnet Federal Services for all the outstanding services provided to our patients as Hawaii’s civilian TRICARE partner.
TriWest brings eight years of military health system experience to Hawaii. Its leaders are committed to providing customer-focused service as they do “whatever it takes” to deliver access to world-class health care to our nation’s finest.
We are pleased with the ongoing transition from Healthnet to TriWest. Our goal is to continue to deliver outstanding, uninterrupted care to our patients. The majority of changes is “behind the scenes” and designed to make our strong TRICARE program even better.
For more information, please visit the TRICARE Center, located on the first floor Oceanside, C Wing. TriWest provides additional information on its website, www.triwest.com, and by calling 1-888-TRIWEST.
