TriWest Healthcare Alliance Awarded 5 Year, $16 Billion Healthcare Contract
Date:7/13/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, July 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- TriWest Healthcare Alliance, with the support of Blue Shield of California, has been awarded a new contract by the U.S. Department of Defense's TRICARE program to provide access to healthcare services to nearly 2.7 million U.S. military personnel and their dependents through 2015. The new TriWest contract is worth approximately $16 billion, and covers military personnel in the Western United States.

Blue Shield, a not-for-profit health plan, has served nearly half a million TRICARE members in California since 2004, when it first purchased an ownership stake in TriWest and helped TriWest win the 2002 DoD contract. Since then, Blue Shield has built the largest network in the TriWest organization and consistently ranked high in audits and reviews against the DoD metrics and standards. Blue Shield even achieved a perfect score in a recent internal TriWest comprehensive 2009 audit.

"We provide health coverage to many large groups, and we've made it a priority to ensure these military members and their families have access to high quality medical care throughout California," said Bruce Bodaken, Chairman and CEO of Blue Shield of California. "It is an honor to take care of the people who protect us, and we take the responsibility seriously."

Formed from an alliance of not-for-profit health plans and hospitals, TriWest Healthcare Alliance began operations in 1996. Today, TriWest's owner plans support the health care needs of 2.7 million people. TriWest provides access to cost-effective, high-quality health care in the 21-state TRICARE West Region, and was named the 2007 TRICARE Region of the year.

"Blue Shield of California has been an outstanding partner in serving America's soldiers and their loved ones," said TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre, Jr. "Together we have built a strong tr
