Effective Jan. 1, 2021, Humana HMO members who choose the Humana Medicare Advantage HMO Direct Network, available in Clark and Nye counties, will have expanded in-network choice to primary care, including 120 new providers at 42 Prime West network locations.

The contract is a value-based care agreement, which builds upon Humana’s existing value-based care arrangement with Prime West, designed to improve patient health outcomes and the overall patient experience.

"Prime West and our independent network of primary care providers are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Humana and add our network for the members of Humana Medicare Advantage HMO Direct Network. Our providers are looking forward to providing superior patient care while improving health outcomes for the patients they serve," said Brigette Mang, Regional President for Prime West. "Both organizations are committed to the best practice of value-based solutions for our patients."

"Humana is pleased to be able to strengthen our relationship with Prime West, providing both our Medicare Advantage PPO and HMO members with access to doctors, specialists and other health care providers at convenient locations throughout Las Vegas and Henderson," said Rick Beavin, Desert Pacific Region Medicare President for Humana. "The agreement also deepens our shared commitment to value-based care, an important way to help our Humana members achieve their best health."

Humana has an extensive and growing value-based care presence. As of Sept. 30, 2020, Humana has more than 2.7 million individual Medicare Advantage and commercial members who are cared for by 67,000 primary care physicians in more than 1,000 value-based relationships across 43 states and Puerto Rico. Humana’s total Medicare Advantage membership is more than 4.5 million members, which includes members affiliated with providers in value-based and standard Medicare Advantage settings.
