Community Care Physicians Signs Agreement with Humana

10/3/17

ALBANY, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Community Care Physicians (CCP) and health and well-being company Humana Inc.(NYSE: HUM) have signed a new value-based agreement that provides in-network access for Humana Medicare Advantage members at CCP facilities.

The contract provides Humana HMO, PPO and PFFS Medicare Advantage members in-network access to CCP’s 248 primary care and specialty physicians at its 37 practices across the Capital District as well as its five urgent care facilities in Delmar, Niskayuna, North Greenbush, Albany and Latham.

“We’re pleased that this new agreement with Community Care Physicians not only expands our Humana footprint in the Capital District, but it also unites us around our common goal of providing individual-focused care and improving the health of our Humana Medicare Advantage members,” said Humana Northeast Medicare President Alexander Clague.

Value-based care is designed to help people achieve their best health by emphasizing:

  • More face time with physicians and personalized care that is tailored to each person’s unique health situation;
  • Access to proactive health screenings and programs that are focused on preventing illness;
  • Improved care for people living with chronic conditions with a focus on avoiding health complications (watch Humana’s “Better Chronic Management Through Value-Based Care” video);
  • Leveraging technologies, such as data analytics, that connect physicians and help them work as a team to coordinate care around the patient; and
  • Reimbursement to physicians based primarily on the health outcomes of their patients rather than the number of services they provide (fee-for-service).

Under this new agreement, physicians will also benefit by having new tools, better data and access to care support to maximize time spent with their patients covered by Humana Medicare Advantage. For more information, visit www.humana.com/valuebasedcare.

The provider may also contract with other plans.
