Tricare West recently announced a change that will take effect in the middle of this month. MHN (Managed Health Network), a sister company to Health Net Federal Services (HNFS) will no longer be managing the TRICARE West mental health provider network, which includes applied behavior analysis (ABA) providers.
Providers currently contracted with MHN as a TRICARE provider will see the TRICARE portion of their MHN agreement transition to HNFS, and providers new to the TRICARE network will work directly with HNFS for contracting and credentialing.
For providers with contracts in place for Commercial MHN, MediCal and Medicare plans, this update will not impact their contractual relationship, as it only impacts providers with direct MHN agreements. If you are impacted, MHN should be notifying you via mail
