Supporting our Georgia healthcare providers

At Humana, we understand the importance of supporting doctors so they can do what they do best: help their patients. Humana helps doctors spend more time keeping members healthy, as opposed to more time shuffling paperwork.

Our work in Georgia is a great example of this. Across the state, nearly 700 Humana employees work out of two Humana offices, five neighborhood medical facilities, a Humana Guidance Center, and eight military TRICARE sites for military families. Together, we serve more than one million Humana members and the community.

As a company, our mission is to improve the health of our members. To hold ourselves accountable, we’ve made a bold commitment—Humana’s 2020 goal: The communities we serve will be 20 percent healthier by 2020 because we make it easy for people to achieve their best health.

To accomplish this goal, we are helping physicians and their patients who are looking for a better model of healthcare. Across the country, doctors are migrating from the traditional fee-for-service model of care to what we believe is a better option: value-based care. In value-based care models, physicians are reimbursed based on the quality of patient care, rather than the quantity (e.g., number of office visits, tests and procedures).

“More plans are providing better care,” said Stacy Sanders, federal policy director at the Medicare Rights Center.

Humana believes that the best health results are achieved when people have access to the care they need, and doctors and other medical providers work together to align outcomes and objectives—which is the ultimate goal of our value-based care model. We’re committed to supporting Georgia doctors and other clinicians so they can help their patients get and stay healthy.
