April marks Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, recognized by both civilian and military communities alike. This observance focuses on creating the appropriate culture to eliminate sexual assault and requiring a commitment from all Service members and civilians at every level. All have a part in combating sexual assault.
This month we are pushing the message #NotJustApril and hope to include SAAPM messaging more often in our monthly messaging.

UnitedHealthcare Military & Veterans is the managed care support contactor for the TRICARE West Region. Under the new contract, beneficiaries will be required to file claims to new addresses, have new case managers if they had been assigned one by TriWest, and may need to find a new doctor, since United Health's civilian network differs from the former contractor, TriWest Healthcare Alliance.
