September 19, 2022

The Accountable Care Organization (ACO) demonstration, Kaiser Permanente, a TRICARE Prime option, ends on Dec 31, 2022. If you have this plan, you must change your Primary Care Manager (PCM) to a new TRICARE network provider or enroll in TRICARE Select during TRICARE Open Season. For 2022, Open Season is from Nov 14 to Dec 13, 2022.

Talk to your doctor about prescriptions you have with Kaiser Permanente. Also, ensure you have the right amount while you transition to a new provider. More details about continuity of care, claims, prescriptions and referrals are forthcoming.

Note: The Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Demonstration was developed/implemented by the Defense Health Agency (DHA) to conduct and evaluate value-driven initiatives in an effort to move from a volume-based reimbursement system to a value-based reimbursement system for health care services. The Demonstration was contracted for three years, which allowed DHA to gather knowledge from lessons learned and improve on initiatives that will drive future expanded iterations of value-based care models.
