Humana contracts with AdaptHealth, Rotech

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Humana has announced agreements with AdaptHealth and Rotech Healthcare to provide home medical equipment services to its Humana Medicare Advantage HMO members. 

The two national companies will begin providing services to these members under a value-based structure beginning July 1, with each serving a specific region of the country. 

“Partnering with national DME partners under a value-based arrangement aligns with our goal to enhance access to the home care services we provide to patients across the country,” said Kirk Allen, senior vice president of Home Solutions at Humana. “We’re excited about the partnerships we’re announcing today because working with these organizations on a national level will help us streamline and simplify our efforts to get Medicare Advantage HMO patients the equipment they require with best-in-class service, while empowering health care providers to more efficiently fulfill their patients’ DME needs. These deeper relationships will also enhance our ability to deploy clinical programs aimed at reducing hospitalizations for our members.” 

Humana says the agreements reflect its commitment to expand value-based care across its continuum of home care services through its onehome subsidiary and its entire Home Solutions business. As part of this commitment, one of the company’s top priorities is to build and rapidly scale a comprehensive value-based home care offering that covers 40% of Humana Medicare Advantage members by 2025. 

Humana says the agreements also exemplify its intent to create a more unified approach to the sourcing of durable medical equipment, resulting in a more coordinated experience for Humana Medicare Advantage HMO members and the physicians and health care professionals who care for them. 

Humana, AdaptHealth and Rotech are in the progress of communicating this transition to Humana Medicare Advantage HME members. AdaptHealth and Rotech will also begin directly contacting members who currently receive DME services to ensure their needs are met once the new contracts take effect. 

The agreements do not apply to Humana Medicare Advantage members enrolled in PPO or private fee-for-service (PFFS) plans, or Humana’s Medicaid, Commercial or TRICARE lines of business. 

Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.
