Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab is committed to providing premier care to military veterans whose lives have been disrupted by substance use disorders and certain co-occurring mental health concerns. We are proud to be an authorized healthcare provider in Region 4 of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Community Care Network.
What Is the Community Care Network?
The Community Care Network (CCN) was developed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in 2018 as a means of ensuring that veterans in communities throughout the United States had direct access to quality care for a wide range of concerns, including addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders.
The CCN is designed to replace the Patient-Centered Community Care (PC3) network, which the VA had previously used to purchase community-based healthcare for qualified veterans.
The Community Care Network includes VA hospitals as well as many thoroughly vetted private and public healthcare providers. The CCN is organized into six regions that include all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and all U.S. territories.
Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab is an authorized provider in the CCN’s Region 4, which includes the state of California.
The establishment of the CCN included a provision that the VA contract with third-party administrators, or TPAs. In addition to overseeing various administrative duties, the TPAs are charged with promoting transparency, quality service, accountability, and effective communication.
Region 4 is one of two regions in the CCN that are currently administered by TriWest Healthcare Alliance.
TriWest Healthcare Alliance
TriWest Healthcare Alliance, which is commonly referred to as TriWest, was awarded a contract in 2019 to serve as the third-party administrator for Region 4 in the VA’s Community Care Network. In addition to California, Region 4 includes 11 other states in the continental United States, plus Hawaii.
In 2020, the VA selected TriWest to serve as the TPA for the CCN’s Region 5. Alaska is the sole state in Region 5.
Since its establishment in 1996, TriWest Healthcare Alliance has worked closely with the U.S. military and the VA.
Prior to being selected as the TPA for Regions 4 and 5, TriWest had been the longtime administrator for TRICARE, which is the Department of Defense’s healthcare program for active-duty military members, retirees, and certain family members.
