by abilling, March 12, 2013

TriCare, West Region (to include, but not limited to: Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Colorado, and California), will transition to and be managed by United Healthcare Military & Veterans effective April 1, 2013.  All claims with dates of service prior to April 1, 2013 will continue to be processed by BCBS KS with WPS being the intermediary.  They will only process claims with DOS through March 31, 2013 until July 29, 2013; therefore we have 90 days from March 31, 2013 to get all claims submitted.  Please be sure you get all your TriCare claims with DOS through March 31, 2013 to ABI timely so these can be submitted no later than July 29, 2013.
