Humana Behavioral Health routinely assesses its network needs. Beginning Oct. 1, 2015, except in select states*, Humana Behavioral Health will only accept applications from behavioral health providers during the following two open enrollment periods:
March 1 through March 31 (spring enrollment)
Sept. 1 through Sept. 30 (fall enrollment)
Due to network adequacy needs, applications from physicians and prescription-writing registered nurses will continue to be accepted year-round. Humana Behavioral Health also may selectively offer enrollment opportunities to specific types of behavioral health providers as required for network adequacy. Established groups will continue to work directly with their assigned contractors and submit requests to them.
* States where behavioral health providers may submit applications at any time are Arizona, Florida (advanced registered nurse practitioners only), Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, New Mexico, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
We are pleased to announce that the U.S. Department of Defense has awarded Humana Military the contract for the new TRICARE East Region. The contract will cover approximately 6 million beneficiaries in a 30-state region, scheduled to begin October 2017.
The team of experienced administrators includes Humana Military, the managed care support contractor; Humana Behavioral Health, supporting the behavioral health program and Wisconsin Physicians Service, conducting claims processing.
Expanding this provider network will not only ensure access to quality behavioral healthcare but improve the overall well-being for TRICARE beneficiaries.
