Life Healing Center is a premier source of comprehensive, personalized treatment for adults age 18 and older who are struggling with mental health concerns, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other effects of trauma, and co-occurring substance use disorders.
We are an authorized provider in the Department of Veterans Affairs Community Care Network, and we are committed to offering the highest quality of care to U.S. military veterans.
What Is the Community Care Network?
The Community Care Network, or CCN, is the system that was created by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to connect military veterans with authorized, thoroughly vetted healthcare providers in communities throughout the United States.
The VA created the CCN in 2018 as a replacement for the Patient-Centered Community Care, or PC3, network. The CCN covers all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Northern Mariana Islands.
The Community Care Network is organized into six regions, each of which is managed by a third-party administrator, or TPA. The TPAs are nongovernmental organizations that are contracted by the VA to provide administrative duties. TPAs were incorporated into the development of the CCN as a means of ensuring accountability and transparency as well as promoting quality care and effective communication.
Life Healing Center is an authorized provider in Region 4, which includes 12 states in the western part of the continental United States, plus Hawaii. The TPA for Region 4 is TriWest Healthcare Alliance.
TriWest Healthcare Alliance
TriWest Healthcare Alliance, or TriWest, is the TPA for two CCN regions: Region 4, which includes Life Healing Center, and Region 5, which is composed solely of Alaska.
TriWest was established in 1996 with the goal of serving military members and veterans. Prior to receiving their first TPA contract in 2019, TriWest had administered TRICARE, which is the healthcare program for active-duty service members, retirees, and dependents, for several years.
TriWest’s connection with veterans also includes partnerships with several military-related support organizations, including the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation, Disabled American Veterans, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), and Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW).
Navigating the CCN
Life Healing Center is committed to providing person-focused services that meet each veteran’s needs and exceed their expectations. This effort begins the first time a veteran contacts our facility, and it includes helping them navigate and understand the Community Care Network.
Our admissions and intake professionals have a detailed understanding of the policies and procedures established in the CCN, and we are happy to provide any information veterans may need to access VA-funded care through this network.
