Health Net Federal Services Awarded New VA Contract

Stocks in this article: HNT

Health Net Federal Services, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Health Net, Inc. (NYSE:HNT), today announced the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has awarded Health Net Federal Services a contract under its new Patient Centered Community Care program.

This new program provides eligible Veterans coordinated, timely access to care through a comprehensive network of non-VA providers who meet VA quality standards when a local VA Medical Center cannot readily provide the care. Health Net will support VA in providing care to veterans in three of the six Patient Centered Community Care regions. These three regions – Regions 1, 2 and 4 – encompass all or portions of 37 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

“Health Net is honored to be selected by the Department of Veterans Affairs to help ensure Veterans have timely access to quality care when local VA Medical Centers cannot provide those services directly,” said Tom Carrato, president, Health Net Federal Services. “Our network of specialty providers welcomes the opportunity to give back to our Veterans by serving those who have served.”

Carrato added, “Over the last 25 years, Health Net Federal Services has built long-standing partnerships with the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs based upon its understanding of military and Veteran issues.”

Health Net Federal Services has administered several contracts for VA. These include VA Community Based Outpatient Clinics throughout the U.S. that provide primary, preventive and behavioral health care to Veterans of all ages and military backgrounds; the VA Outpatient Recovery Audit that identified overpayments made by the VA to non-VA providers, helping to maximize care to Veterans through proper payments; and the VA’s Rural Mental Health program, a pilot program designed to provide behavioral health services to Veterans in rural counties.

Additionally, Health Net serves the Department of Defense as the managed care support contractor for the TRICARE North Region, as well as a contractor for the Military and Family Life Counseling program, which provides short-term, non-medical, solution-focused counseling to service members and their families.
