VA News Release: VA to Take Immediate Actions on Timely Payments to Community Providers

Deploy multiple IT improvements within the first six months of 2018 that streamline the claims submission and payment process to reduce time for payments significantly. Align on concurrent performance improvement goals with VA’s existing Third Party Administrators to improve multiple aspects of their performance rapidly to ensure Veterans have continued uninterrupted access to care. Award four new contracts in 2018 for implementation in 2019 to establish the new Community Care Network that includes elements designed to ensure prompt payment of claims.

Ensure transparency with VA’s claims processing performance by publishing VA’s claims processing timeliness on a monthly basis.
