Health Net Federal Services Commemorates 25 Years of Serving Military Communities

Long-standing partnerships and expertise in military operations and health care delivery mark commemorative milestone in service

ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Health Net Federal Services, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Health Net, Inc. (NYS: HNT) , today announced its commemoration of 25 years of service to the United States military on August 1, 2013. Health Net Federal Services' long-standing partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) began in 1988, with the award of the DoD's first managed care demonstration contract under the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Uniformed Services (CHAMPUS) Reform Initiative in California and Hawaii.

"Over the last 25 years, Health Net Federal Services has built long-standing partnerships with the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs based upon a distinct understanding of the military and its operations and a commitment to those who serve," said Tom Carrato, president, Health Net Federal Services. "We are proud to build upon our history to expand our expertise in cost-effective, beneficiary-focused solutions and provider networks to other state and government programs as well."

Health Net Federal Services serves the DoD as the managed care support contractor for the TRICARE North Region. Additionally, Health Net Federal Services administers several contracts for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). These include VA Community Based Outpatient Clinics throughout the U.S., which provide compassionate and caring primary, preventive and behavioral health care to Veterans of all ages and military backgrounds; the VA Outpatient Recovery Audit that identifies overpayments made by the VA to non-VA providers, helping to maximize care to Veterans through reasonable, consistent and proper payments; and the VA's Rural Mental Health program, a pilot program designed to provide behavioral health services to Veterans in rural counties.

MHN Government Services, Inc. (MHNGS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Health Net's behavioral health subsidiary, Managed Health Network, Inc., is proud to be an administrator of the DoD sponsored Military and Family Life Counseling (MFLC) program, which provides short-term, non-medical, solution-focused counseling to service members and their families. MHNGS has been an administrator of the MFLC program since 2004, when it was a pilot program with 20 licensed counselors in Germany. Since then, the program has expanded it to a worldwide program that serves as a critical part of health and well-being for our military families and operational readiness. The MFLC program increases individual and family competency and resilience in coping with the challenges of military life, and helps to ensure these issues do not detract from operational readiness.

Health Net Federal Services continues to use its experience and expertise in health care delivery to expand its breadth of business to include state and other government programs, such as the California Correctional Health Care Services program.
