Phoenix-based TriWest Healthcare Alliance will end its challenge to the Defense Department's award of the TRICARE West Region contract to UnitedHealth. The decision comes weeks after the GAO dismissed TwiWest's protest.
The Government Accountability Office has turned back a protest over a multibillion dollar contract to administer part of the military's TRICARE health insurance system, the losing bidder said Monday. The Comptroller General's decision was not publicly released as of Monday afternoon, but TriWest officials said they had been notified of the rejection.
TriWest Healthcare Alliance is fighting for survival after it lost its only contract — the $17 billion contract to provide healthcare to military personnel. Although TriWest said it submitted the lowest bid it still lost out to United Health Group.
The Defense Department has awarded United Health Military and Veteran Services a six-year contract to operate TRICARE in the Western U.S., including Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado and a handlful of other states.
