Major health insurer, Humana, released their annual report on physician progress and patient outcomes based on calendar year 2020 data. The report details three key areas of data—prevention, outcomes and utilization, and costs and payments—for Humana individual Medicare Advantage (MA) members seeking care from primary care physicians in value-based agreements. A new section focuses on the experience of the patient and physician within value-based care.
Humana shares these results annually. As with the previous seven years’ results, the 2020 statistics cannot be directly compared year over year due to multiple demographic changes in Humana’s member population.
One key findings in the report is value-based practices include the greater share of Humana MA members, with 67% of Humana’s individual MA membership, 2.65 million, seeking care from primary care physicians in value-based agreements.
