The contract renewal enables Humana Medicare and commercial members, along with CarePlus Health Plans Medicare members, to continue receiving care at HCA’s affiliated hospitals and medical facilities in South Florida, Tampa Bay, Central Florida, Jacksonville and Northwest Florida.
The existing Florida Medicare and commercial network contract with HCA’s affiliated hospitals and medical facilities, Humana and CarePlus (Miami-based Medicare Advantage HMO owned by Humana) was scheduled to expire in August.
Under the new statewide network agreement, which took effect Aug. 15, 2013, more than one-million Florida members of Humana’s commercial, Medicare, Medicaid and individual health plans will continue to have access to close to 40 HCA-affiliated Florida hospitals, stretching from South Florida to Tampa Bay to North Florida, for all covered inpatient and outpatient services.
HCA’s affiliated Florida hospitals have been a part of Humana’s statewide health care network since 1995 and CarePlus’ provider network since 2005.
“We’re very pleased to renew our Florida network provider agreement with HCA,” said Humana Florida Network Management Vice President Randee Lehrer, “so that our current and prospective health plan members across Florida can be assured as they enroll this fall in their medical and health benefit plans for the coming year that they will have continuous access to care at HCA’s network of hospitals and medical facilities statewide.”
Humana Inc., headquartered in Louisville, Ky., is a leading health care company that offers a wide range of insurance products and health and wellness services that incorporate an integrated approach to lifelong well-being. By leveraging the strengths of its core businesses, Humana believes it can better explore opportunities for existing and emerging adjacencies in health care that can further enhance wellness opportunities for the millions of people across the nation with whom the company has relationships.
Humana is one of Florida’s largest health benefits companies with more than a million Medicare, commercial, Medicaid and individual health plan members statewide and is one of Florida’s largest health care employers with more than 7,000 associates across the state.
