U.S. Military’s Health Program Consolidates Coverage Regions

Military.com reports that “The U.S. military’s Tricare health care program for families and veterans will consolidate its regions from three to two under a new pair of contracts, officials announced Thursday.”  

“The system is currently administered in three regions — North, South and West — by three separate contractors.”  

“The North region, which includes North Carolina but not Tennessee and goes as far west as Illinois, is currently managed by Health Net Inc. The South, which includes Tennessee plus the Fort Campbell, Kentucky, area and stretches west to include Oklahoma and most of Texas, is managed by Humana Inc.’s military subsidiary. The West, meanwhile, is the largest, including Hawaii and Alaska and a portion of Texas, as well as states north of Oklahoma and west of Illinois. It is managed by United Healthcare.”
