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.
Humana Government Business (HGB) in partnership with Humana Behavioral Health (HBH) has responded to the Defense Health Agency’s (DHA) request for proposal for the next generation of TRICARE contracts, known as T2017. We will be working together as a team called Humana Military. In the event HGB is awarded the T2017 contract we are inviting providers to apply to expand our behavioral health network. Growing this provider network will ensure and expand access to quality behavioral healthcare to improve overall well-being for TRICARE beneficiaries.
The estimated effective date of the new TRICARE contract is April 1, 2017.
