Through this agreement, physicians in Aledade’s Accountable Care

currently participate in Humana’s Medicare Advantage network are able to
utilize tools and resources from both organizations to help deliver
value-based care to Humana Medicare Advantage members.

“We’re delighted to be able to deliver value-based care to an expanded
patient population through this agreement with Humana,” said Dr. Farzad

to improving patient health and lowering health care costs by empowering
independent physicians to thrive in value-based care arrangements.”

agreement reflects a strong, mutual belief by Aledade and Humana that
value-based care is key to enhancing both the patient experience and
patient outcomes.”

The agreement with Aledade is part of Humana’s longstanding commitment
to value-based care, which emphasizes:

  • More personal time with health professionals 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;
  • 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 linked to the health outcomes of their
    patients rather than based solely on the quantity of services they
    provide (fee-for-service).

Dec. 31, 2018, Humana has more than two million individual Medicare
Advantage members and approximately 115,000 commercial members who are
