Humana Inc. a leading health and well-being company, has announced it has collaborated with Heritage Provider Network (HPN), an effective physician-led value-based care organizations, on a value-based agreement designed to offer a coordinated, patient-centered experience to help Humana Medicare Advantage members in Southern and Central California achieve better health.
Humana’s Medicare Advantage HMO plan members in Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties, as well as Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan members in Kern and Ventura counties, will have in-network access to HPN’s vast number of physicians and facilities throughout Southern and Central California.
The agreement with HPN is part of Humana’s longstanding commitment to value-based care, which emphasizes:
More personal time with health professionals and personalized care that is tailored to each person’s unique health situation;
Access to proactive health screenings and programs that are focused on preventing illness;
Improved care for people living with chronic conditions with a focus on avoiding health complications;
Leveraging technologies, such as data analytics, that connect physicians and help them work as a team to coordinate care around the patient; and
Reimbursement to physicians linked to the health outcomes of their patients rather than based solely on the quantity of services they provide (fee-for-service). (Watch video of Humana and AAFP’s Value-Based Payment Study Congressional Briefing).
Under this new agreement, Heritage Provider Network’s physicians will also benefit by having access to new tools, real-time data and care support offered by Humana, which will maximize the time HPN physicians spent with their patients covered by Humana Medicare Advantage.

As of June 30, 2018, Humana has approximately two million individual Medicare Advantage members and approximately 130,000 Group members who are cared for by more than 52,000 primary care physicians in more than 1,000 value-based relationships across 43 states and Puerto Rico.
