TriWest Statement Regarding GAO Contract Decision

The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced today that it has denied TriWest Healthcare Alliance’s protest of the award of the TRICARE West Region T-3 Contract to a subsidiary of UnitedHealthcare. The award of the contract in March 2012 to UnitedHealthcare was a re-bid of the contract TriWest initially won in July 2009. Earlier this year, TriWest filed a protest with the GAO regarding the Department of Defense’s decision to award the TRICARE West Region T-3 Contract to a UnitedHealthcare affiliate. In its protest, TriWest identified a variety of concerns that the government’s decision in awarding the contract was the result of a flawed and unfair process.
