As you may be aware, our military family population is about to double (approximately 6 million) as we optimistically await award of the 2017 TRICARE® contract. In our work with TRICARE currently we are responding to the results of over ten years of active warfare, where military members and their families have endured the emotional whiplash of combat deployments coupled with brief respites and redeployments. Now, as we face the predicted mental health consequences, your clinical skill and expertise has never been more needed by your country.

Our Federal Network of mental health professionals has played a key role in the provision of world-class mental health and substance abuse services to the men and women of our military for nearly three decades. We see you as a critical partner and not simply a name on a provider directory. To that end, we will have provider representatives who can assist with any questions or issues you may have in order to minimize administrative burden for your staff. As a network provider, you will receive priority with regard to referrals so that you can maintain a patient/client base that meets your professional needs. You will have easy access to cutting-edge trainings, many of which will include free continuing education units. But most importantly, you will be part of a cadre of professionals who have vowed to make a difference for America.

We understand that there are innumerable competing priorities for your services, and that a professional practice requires a level of cash flow to meet those needs. Being fully aware of the necessity of payer mix, we only ask that you consider setting aside a small percentage of your practice time to help these people who have sacrificed so much for all of us.

ValueOptions® Federal Services is dedicated to providing quality customer service to our members and our network providers. An adequate network of dedicated professionals providing much-needed care is therefore critical. We need Your Help, and extend an invitation for you to join the provider network for TRICARE, assuming you meet requisite licensing and credentialing requirements in the state where service is to be rendered. Once TRICARE announces the award of the 2017 contract, you will be credentialed by ValueOptions Federal Services. After credentialing has been completed in full, you will be a TRICARE network provider and eligible for TRICARE referrals at the start of health care delivery.
