Human announced that some of its senior payer agnostic services will begin to be shifted into CenterWell, the payer’s newest mark in the US. Although the transitioning services by Humana will take one or two years, it will envelop both the Primary care and the Family physicians Group starting from April 2021.
- The senior CenterWell Services will comprise 41 primary care facilities that were formerly partners in Primary care and the Family physicians Group. These services are dispersed all over Florida, Kansas, Nevada, and a few Southern states. Humana has also chosen to add a few more centers in Houston, Texas, Lafayette, North Shore, and Nevada.
- Bruce D. Broussard, Humana President, and CEO said, “ This new brand reflects the fact that our care-services business is growing and maturing –such as our payer agnostic senior-focused primary care center- and we need a brand that speaks to how we put our members and patients at the center of everything we do”.
- In addition to the already opened centers, Humana has plans to open 20 centers for the CenterWell senior Primary Care during 2021 and 2022. These centers will be operated on a coordinated care model by providing seniors with a primary care provider. CenterWell will embrace to seek a whole-person approach to health, by highlighting not only physical health but also emotional and social well-being.
- Renee Buckingham, Segment President of Humana’s Care Delivery Organisation said, “ our patients have grown accustomed to the highest level of care and nothing will change that.”
