Your Regional Resource on Healthcare Issues for AK, AZ, CA, CO, HI, ID. IO (excluding Rock Island Arsenal area), KS, MN, MS (except the St. Louis area), MO, NE, NV, NM, ND, OR, SD, TX (the southwester corner including El Paso), UT, WA, and WY.
The SEL serves as a key staff member in TRO-West presenting the enlisted perspective on healthcare issues that affect enlisted personnel and their families. My mission is to: 1) establish and sustain open lines of communication with senior enlisted leadership of all Services and components in the 21 state TRICARE West Region, 2) to provide up-to-date information on your ever-changing health benefit and 3) to facilitate resolution if complex or systematic problems arise.
Many of the issues that our enlisted members have addressed concern basic TRICARE education, claims issues, eligibility, special family member needs, benefit questions, traveling with TRICARE, and Prime enrollment information. The first step for answers to any TRICARE-related topic should be the closest TRICARE Service Center or by calling the Managed Care Support Contractor for the West region. TriWest Healthcare Alliance can be reached at 1-888-874-9378. Another avenue for assistance is the Beneficiary Counseling and Assistance Coordinator (BCAC), located at every military treatment facility (MTF). If the issue cannot be resolved at that level then I can be your next step for education or assistance at 1-619-236-5355.
If you are interested in TRICARE educational opportunities across the West region, there are several options you may want to consider. You can contact your local MTF, TRICARE Service Center, attend one of the TRICARE University courses (provided online or in person) such as the TRICARE Fundamentals Course. Please contact me if you are interested in the educational opportunities we provide.
I am looking forward to working with you to ensure each military member and their families utilize their healthcare benefit to its maximum potential.
