The U.S. Department of Defense procures many different items and services. A great deal of these are to support their personnel, their families, dependents and retirees. Through various programs and delivery systems the military funds health care for millions of people. They do this through their own medical facilities as well as for the HMO like TRICARE.

Health Net Federal Services, part of Health Net (HNT), was awarded three separate contracts to provide appointment services at different military bases across the U.S. Two of the contracts are through the end of March and one is until January of next year. All include a potential six month extension option. No value for the contracts were given.

Health Net provides management of portions of the TRICARE system used by the majority of DoD customers. These are large contracts with values over $1 billion a year and smaller contracts like the appointment services only increase the value of the military health care business for companies.
