Protecting patients. Empowering physicians. Join us!

TRICARE webinar to address transition

In an effort to further ongoing communication and be responsive to physician concerns, the Kansas Medical Society, in collaboration with the Kansas Medical Group Management Association Insurance Committee, will be co-hosting a webinar with Health Net Federal Services (HNFS) on July 18, 2018 from noon – 1 p.m. CST. Please plan to join us as senior staff from HNFS provide updates regarding their transition. 

Background materials for webinar:

As background information, on January 2, 2018, Health Net Federal Services (HNFS) became the new managed care contractor for the TRICARE West Region, serving approximately 2.9 million beneficiaries in 21 western states, including Kansas. HNFS took over the contract previously held by UnitedHealthcare Military and Veterans’ Services. As with any transition of this size, HNFS has experienced a broad range of implementation issues including challenges related to provider contracting & credentialing, undesired beneficiary enrollment transfers, and provider director inaccuracies. HNFS would like to offer our group an update on these and other issues during this session as they look to improve communications and partnerships.
