Make the switch to the Availity Web Portal - Humana
Working with TriWest Healthcare Alliance online?

TriWest users: make the switch to the Availity Portal.

TriWest and Availity have teamed up to make it easier for you to manage health care for Veterans online. The Availity Portal is becoming TriWest’s new method to access the TriWest Provider Portal, submit medical documentation, and, in the coming months, complete other secure tasks online.

TriWest’s secure portal at www.triwest.com/provider will remain available during the transition to Availity.

One password is the key to information from multiple payers.
The Availity Portal is a multi-payer site where you can use a
single user ID and password to work with TriWest and other participating payers online. Availity is compliant with all HIPAA regulations, and there is no cost for providers to register or use any of the online tools.

  • If you are not registered for the Availity Portal, please register now so you have access to the most up-to-date resources and tools for working with TriWest. To begin, visit Availity.com and click on REGISTER.

  1. Q: What is TriWest Healthcare Alliance’s relationship with Availity?
    A: Availity was formed in Jacksonville, Florida, as a joint venture between Florida Blue (formerly Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida) and four other payers in an effort to improve efficiency and reduce administrative complexity in the healthcare industry, with the ultimate goal of improving healthcare outcomes. TriWest collaborates with Availity to develop and improve online tools for healthcare providers.

  2. Q: Why does TriWest want me to use the Availity Portal?
    A: TriWest and Availity are working to streamline healthcare processes wherever possible. TriWest has selected Availity as its preferred provider portal as a way to help providers access secure information and submit transactions online. By using the multi-payer Availity Portal, you can access information and transactions from TriWest and other payers on one website, with only one login and one password to remember.

  3. Q: Why did I receive a request from TriWest to register for the Availity Portal?
    A: TriWest is contacting providers who currently use the TriWest Provider Portal at www.triwest.com/provider and asking them to register for the Availity Portal. TriWest will eventually discontinue its Provider Portal at www.triwest.com/provider, so we ask that you begin using the Availity Portal to see its advantages for yourself and your organization.

  4. Q: I am registered for the TriWest secure portal at www.triwest.com/provider. Is it going away?
    A: Yes, at some point TriWest will shut down access to its current Provider Portal at www.triwest.com/provider. TriWest is migrating to Availity as its sole secure portal for healthcare providers. Please register for the Availity Portal now to access TriWest’s current tools and resources via payer spaces.

  5. Q: What are the plans for TriWest.com?
    A: TriWest is migrating its secure Provider Portal tools to the Availity Portal and asking that providers use Availity for online transactions. When the migration is complete, the secure TriWest Provider Portal at
    www.triwest.com/provider will no longer be available. However, TriWest’s public website that does not require registration, TriWest.com, will continue to offer information to healthcare providers as it does today.

If you have questions about the TriWest Provider Portal at www.triwest.com/provider, please send an email to ProviderServices@triwest.com.
