Humana - Waive of Member Costs for Primary Care and Behavioral Health Visits of Medicare Advantage Members

May 6, 2020

All of us at Humana are inspired by your commitment and sacrifice in caring for your patients in the communities we serve together. We deeply appreciate all you have done to stay connected with your patients, and the creative approaches you have developed to care for our members during this crisis. Some members have used telehealth as a means to stay connected with their care providers while others may have delayed care while at home, which could adversely impact their health.

Priority Health - PCP Assignment Update of Changes

May 4, 2020

We know how important it is to have the Priority Health members you see assigned to your practice. That’s why we’re making changes based on your feedback to improve our member assignment.

We’ve started with our individual product reviewing our members’ assignment against claims data. Effective May 1, we’ve updated HMO and POS members’ assignments when they’re seeing a PCP different than the one chosen at enrollment. Members seeing a provider at the same office or accountable care organization (ACN) assignments will not change.
