Humana expands primary care network

Humana added 11 more primary care practices to its Medicare Advantage network in Arizona, Georgia and Texas through an expanded partnership with Iora Health.

This year, Iora, a Boston-based network of primary care clinics, will open new centers in Phoenix, Atlanta and Houston. The expansion is in addition to Humana's value-based agreements with Iora's existing primary care centers in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia and Washington.

The announcement comes a year after Humana and Iora expanded their partnership to 10 new primary care clinics in 2018.

Iora's care model includes a care team that guides patients through their respective care journeys. Patients receive 24/7 telephone access to healthcare providers, same- or next-day appointments for acute care, and on-site labs, as well as online access to their medical records.
