Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network, Humana sign value-based agreement for Medicare Advantage plans

Nashville, Tenn.-based Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network and Louisville, Ky.-based Humana entered a four-year value-based agreement.

Here are three things to know about the agreement.

1. Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network's more than 4,000 providers and more than 60 hospitals will be in-network with Humana Medicare Advantage members in middle Tennessee and Jackson, Tenn. Humana has 4,000 members in that area.

2. The agreement is the network's first value-based care agreement for Medicare Advantage policyholders. It will maintain Vanderbilt Health coverage for Humana Medicare Advantage policyholders and extend resources to physicians to improve outcomes while lowering per-capita costs.  

3. "Humana's new agreement with the Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network is aligning high-quality physicians and facilities with Humana's expertise in value-based care, population health tools and data-driven insights around the same goal: improving the health of the people we serve," said Doug Haaland, mid-south regional president for Humana.
