Health insurer Humana has entered into a value-based agreement with Tennessee-based Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network, a physician-led organization of healthcare professionals.

The four-year agreement aims to benefit about 4,000 Humana Medicare Advantage members in the Middle Tennessee and Jackson region.

This new agreement maintains Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network coverage for patients with Humana Medicare Advantage plans, and provides additional resources to physicians to help them better manage the health of their patients.

"This agreement with Humana further validates Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network’s proven model for delivering quality and value," said C Wright Pinson, deputy chief executive officer for Vanderbilt University Medical Center and chairman of the network board. "We are pleased to work together to bring the network’s mission for providing more proactive, coordinated and affordable care to Humana’s Medicare Advantage patients in our region."

Mark Cianciolo, executive director of Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network, added: "To truly transform the health of this region, we created a network of hospitals and physicians who are committed to excellence, innovation and collaboration. We have carefully chosen partners, like Humana, who share our vision for strong, healthy communities and who provide valuable support to help make our vision a reality.”
