Optum takes over community care network contract

Sept. 17 marks the beginning of community health care delivery under the VA contract awarded to Optum Public Sector Solutions, Inc., part of UnitedHealth Group, Inc. TriWest Health Care Alliance was managing VA’s community care network (CCN) in the area and will fully transition responsibility to Optum over the next 30 days. VA community providers contracted by TriWest will not be automatically enrolled in CCN, so they will be required to sign up with Optum to continue providing services to veterans under CCN. VA is deploying this new network in phases to ensure continuity of care coordination. Veterans will continue to receive care from their current community providers during the transition. Read the full announcement here.
