Kelsey-Seybold team to expand Humana's Medicare Advantage provider network
Major insurance hub Humana has partnered with multi-specialty group practice Kelsey-Seybold Clinic to sign an in-network agreement that Humana hopes will allow expanded access to value-based care through a broadening of its Medicare Advantage provider network in the Houston area. The insurer expects the move will expand access to care to include members of its Medicare Advantage HMO plans.
With this agreement that becomes effective Jan. 1, 2022, Houston-area members of Humana Medicare Advantage HMO plans will have in-network access to care at more than 26 convenient Kelsey-Seybold Clinic locations. They also will have access to more than 500 providers in 55 medical specialties across the Houston-Galveston region.
Humana has stressed that the new relationship will emphasize the insurer's focus on value-based care, as well as access to proactive health screenings and programs focused on preventing illness.
The insurer has also promised to leverage technologies such as data analytics to connect physicians and facilitate coordination of care. They have also said it expects improved care for people living with chronic conditions.
Humana also said that solid fundamentals across its business lines have played a part to navigate the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.
