ATLANTA, July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The Department of Defense has selected United Health Military & Veterans Services, LLC to serve as the TRICARE provider for the South Region. This decision comes at the completion of a process that has gone on for well over a year.
After a Wednesday debriefing from the TRICARE Management Activity, TriServ will review all available information and likely file a formal bid protest with the government in an effort to reverse the Defense Department's decision.
"It is difficult to understand the logic of the process that brought the Department of Defense to this conclusion." Charlie Abell, TriServ's CEO said, "The robustness of our provider network and our competitive pricing proposal, combined with the excellent past performance of our owner companies makes our loss very hard to accept. We remain hopeful that the decision will be reversed and the contract awarded to TriServ, thereby protecting the military beneficiary's access to the highest quality, most affordable health care."
TriServ Alliance, LLC is an independent, community based company created to serve those who serve: military health care beneficiaries in the South Region, which includes Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, portions of Kentucky, adjacent to Fort Campbell, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and all but extreme western Texas. TriServ is headquartered in Atlanta Georgia, and will have local offices in Jackson, Mississippi; Jacksonville, Florida; and San Antonio, Texas.
