TRICARE mental health transitions to Health Net Federal Services

May 09, 2019
Area(s) of Interest: Practice Management Payor Contracting Mental Health 

Effective May 13, 2019, Health Net Federal Services (HNFS) will assume management duties for the TRICARE West mental health provider network from MHN. HNFS recently mailed notifications to affected providers advising that their TRICARE MHN mental health agreements will be assigned to HNFS with no change in contract terms or provisions. Providers seeking to join the TRICARE mental health network will now work directly with HNFS for contracting and credentialing. This change will have no impact on current operational processes, as HNFS already handles authorizations and claims. However, as of May 13, 2019, mental health providers will now have access to HNFS’ online tools and resources, including information on how to join the TRICARE network, check credentialing status and update provider demographics.
