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. If you currently use the TriWest Provider Portal at www.triwest.com/provider for any of these tasks, your Availity login credentials will now allow you to use the TriWest Payer Space in the Availity Portal, without having to log out and log back in.

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: 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.

    When you log into the Availity Portal, you will have access to the full suite of capabilities on the TriWest Provider Portal through the new TriWest Payer Spaces. You can also submit medical documentation, check the status of claims, and look up authorization information using the multi-payer workflows on Availity. You can accomplish all of this without having to log in and out of Availity and TriWest.

  2. 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.

  3. 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, along with customized training opportunities. See “Get up to speed quickly with training opportunities” below for more information.

  4. Q: I received a request to register for the Availity Portal, but I know others who have not. Why is that?
    A: Within each region, TriWest is notifying organizations’ administrators for their online portal. This way, the administrator can determine the approach and timeline for notifying and registering other users in their organization. However, any healthcare provider may register for the Availity Portal.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Q: When is the secure TriWest Provider Portal at www.triwest.com/provider going away?
    A: The portal will no longer be available once the migration is complete. A date has not been set at this time. However, by registering and beginning to use Availity now, you will have to the latest resources and tools, and customized training opportunities available in each region during migration. See “Get up to speed quickly with training opportunities” below for more information.
