Health insurer Humana has acquired Florida-based Family Physicians Group (FPG), one of the largest at-risk providers serving Medicare Advantage and Managed Medicaid HMO patients in Greater Orlando with a footprint in Lake, Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties.

FPG currently serves over 22,000 Medicare Advantage patients, including nearly 4,000 Humana members. FPG utilizes a comprehensive care management model and proactive medical management initiatives to improve patient outcomes and make health care more affordable, Humana said.

“We are actively expanding our primary care model and are committed to creating a national footprint of high-performing, senior-focused primary care physicians," said Renee Buckingham, Humana’s segment president, care delivery. "FPG advances this strategy in Central Florida. It will remain focused on delivering clinical excellence through its strong, highly qualified and engaged team to all Central Florida patients, regardless of their health plan affiliation.”

Buckingham added: “Family Physicians Group has a long history of providing integrated, value-based care to the patients they serve throughout the Greater Orlando market. We believe their payer-agnostic model and focus on value based care makes FPG an ideal fit to anchor our primary care business in Orlando."
