is pleased to announce that we are now a TRICARE
approved provider and contracted with TriWest
as an "In-Network" Provider.
What is TRICARE? TRICARE was created in the early 1990s and is the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) health care entitlement for active duty, Guard and Reserve and retired members of the military, and their eligible family members and survivors. TRICARE is not an insurance plan, but rather a health care entitlement earned by our nations military members for their service to this country.
What is TriWest
is a privately held corporation that contracts with the Department of Defense (DoD) to administer TRICARE
in a 21-state "West Region". There are also two other TRICARE
regions in the United States
, North Region and South Region.
TriWest is not an insurance company either, but rather a contractor to the DoD that administers the TRICARE
CBR YouthConnect has a strong history and heritage with our military, from our campus originally being an Army Air Base in World War II to hosting Armed Forces Day celebrations.
"We are delighted to join the TriWest network", said CBR YouthConnect President Chuck Thompson. "For nearly 50 years, our organization has grown and evolved to meet the needs of society, and to now be able to provide our mental health and educational services to our U.S.
military service members and their families makes us very proud".
"Our campus was built at the site of La Junta Village, a World War II military facility. In that regard, becoming a part of this program holds a special meaning to us", Thompson said.
Residential Treatment for youth is covered under the TRICARE system. Therefore, this is a great opportunity for any family with eligible youth and in need of residential psychiatric treatment services! These services may cover the client for up to 150 days per calendar year.

We have updated our program and services to offer what we feel will be real life practical skills to the youth that are here at CBRYC. We feel giving them hands-on practical experience is a great way of giving them employable skills in preparing for return to their homes, families, and communities.
Thank you for your enduring partnership with CBR YouthConnect!
