Health care contractor change

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo.—The 21st Medical Group prepares for the TRICARE contract to switch from TriWest Healthcare Alliance to UnitedHealthcare Military and Veterans April 1, 2013. According to Col. Michael Burke, 21st MDG commander, the change in contractor does not affect the benefits patients receive. Additionally, patients will continue to see the same friendly faces they are accustomed to at the TRICARE Service Center, Burke said. Most TRICARE customers will not notice the change and there will not be any interruptions to benefits. Customers who are signed up for automatic billing will need to submit a new Automatic Payment Authorization form to UHC M&V by March 11. For more information visit www.tricare.mil or call the TRICARE service Center at (888) 874-9378. (U.S. Air Force photo/Lea Johnson)
