New Veteran Care in HNFS Regions Transitions to VA Aug. 1
Monday, July 30, 2018
Effective Aug. 1, 2018, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will assume care coordination for new referrals and authorizations under Veterans Choice Program and Patient-Centered Community Care for Health Net Federal Services, LLC- (HNFS) contracted regions. (VA assumed care for mileage-eligible veterans, also referred to as distance-eligible veterans, for HNFS-contracted regions on July 3). HNFS will continue to coordinate care for referrals/authorizations received prior to Aug. 1 (or July 3 for mileage-eligible veterans); however, we are not permitted to schedule appointments for veterans beyond Sept. 30.
