TriServ likely to file a formal bid protest with the government in an effort to reverse the Defense Department's decision
TriServ Alliance, an independent, community-based company, the military health care beneficiary in the South Region, is likely to protest on the decision of selecting United Health Military & Veterans Services, to serve as the TRICARE provider for the south region.
TriServ stated that it will review all available information and is likely to file a formal bid protest with the government in an effort to reverse the Defense Department’s decision.
Charlie Abell, CEO of TriServ, said: “It is difficult to understand the logic of the process that brought the Department of Defense to this conclusion. The robustness of our provider network and our competitive pricing proposal, combined with the excellent past performance of our owner companies makes our loss very hard to accept. We remain hopeful that the decision will be reversed and the contract awarded to TriServ, thereby protecting the military beneficiary’s access to the highest quality, most affordable health care.”
TriServ is headquartered in Atlanta Georgia, and have local offices in Jackson, Mississippi, Jacksonville, Florida, San Antonio and Texas.
