Cleveland Clinic, Humana launch co-branded Medicare Advantage plans
Cleveland Clinic and Humana are creating two Medicare Advantage health plans with no monthly premiums for seniors in the Cleveland area.
The Humana Cleveland Clinic Preferred Medicare Plans will be offered during this year’s Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plan enrollment period, which runs from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7, with plan coverage beginning Jan. 1. The new plans build upon an existing value-based care agreement between the two organizations.
Both Medicare Advantage plans—an HMO and a special needs plan for those covered by both Medicare and Medicaid—have no monthly premium and no copayments for primary-care physi- cian office visits and 30-day supplies of tier-1 prescription drugs. They also require no referrals to see in-network specialists. The plans give members access to the clinic’s physicians, specialists and facilities, as well as independent physicians who are part of the Cleveland Clinic Quality Alliance.
