Humana Medicare Advantage members have additional access to high-impact, relationship-based primary care thanks to Iora Health and Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) teaming up to add one additional Iora Primary Care practices to Humana’s Medicare Advantage network in Arizona. Iora Primary Care is the consumer brand of Iora Health.

 

Iora Primary Care and Humana’s value-based care relationship is already delivering on the promise to provide a high quality of care and service to people with Medicare in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia and Washington.

 

The new and existing practices, operated by Iora Health, will accept all Humana Medicare Advantage HMO and PPO plans offered in Arizona, as well as Original Medicare with or without most supplement plans.

 

The new practice is located at 1719 N. Dysart Road, Avondale, AZ 85392. For a list of all Iora Primary Care locations visit: ioraprimarycare.com.

 

The new practices provide patients with Humana Medicare Advantage plans in Arizona access to Iora’s model of care that changes the way primary care is delivered. By investing more in preventive care, building robust care teams, focusing on health outcomes, increasing customer service and incorporating proprietary technology built to support this unique care, Iora is leading the charge to transform the industry. Iora Primary Care patients experience:

      Care built on respect and relationships with longer appointments and a team that listens.

      The benefits of an integrated care team including doctors, nurse practitioners, health coaches and behavioral health specialists, among others, who guide patients’ care through the complex health system.

      Convenience, including 24/7 access to health care professionals by phone for urgent needs, same/next day appointments for acute appointments and onsite labs.

      Iora’s proprietary collaborative care platform, Chirp, is designed so patients can schedule appointments, access their records and communicate directly with their care team electronically.

      Ease of collaboration with Humana’s deep array of in-network specialists so patients have a coordinated care plan that addresses their needs.

 

“We are so excited to be continuing our growth in Arizona and opening our fifteenth practice, enabling us to offer our unique relationship based care to more adults on Medicare in our community. We build our care upon healing relationships because we know when you invest in relationships, people stay healthier and lead happier lives. As we enter our fifth year caring for our community, we are thrilled to also be continuing our long-lasting partnership with Humana,” said Tracy Masson, Arizona’s Vice President of Operations at Iora Primary Care.
