WPS Military and Veterans Health
WPS Military and Veterans Health (MVH) administers claims and provides customer service and related activities worldwide for the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Health Agency (DHA) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
For DHA, MVH is the contractor for the TRICARE Dual Eligible Fiscal Intermediary Contract (TDEFIC), which implements the TRICARE For Life program for TRICARE beneficiaries who are also eligible for Medicare. MVH partners as a subcontractor with International SOS on the TRICARE Overseas Program (TOP) contract. MVH also partners as a subcontractor with Humana Government Business (HGB) on the T-2017 Managed Care Support Contract—East Region.
For VA, MVH partners as a subcontractor with TriWest Healthcare Alliance (TriWest) for the Patient-Centered Community Care (PC3)/Veterans CHOICE Program (VCP) contracts, expanding coverage in 2018 to include all regions—1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. However, the VA has awarded new Community Care Network (CCN) contracts with newly aligned regions. Regions 1, 2, and 3 are under transition to Optum, and TriWest and WPS are transitioning to the new Region 4. New Region 5 (Alaska) is under bid and the new Region 6 (Pacific Islands) bid is anticipated sometime during 2020.
