Kentucky-based company one of four recommended to provide Medicaid managed care for people across the Hoosier state
Leading integrated health and wellness company Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) has been notified by the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) that FSSA is recommending Humana be awarded a contract to deliver health care in the state’s Managed Long Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) program, Indiana Pathways for Aging (Pathways). Humana’s Medicaid division — Humana Healthy Horizons — expects to begin administering the coverage in 2024.
Building on our success improving health and delivering value, Humana Healthy Horizons will leverage its person-centered approach to improve the health and well-being of Indiana’s Medicaid MLTSS members. With a deep presence throughout the state, local teams of Humana employees will work closely with the provider community to deliver high quality services. The program will use advanced technology and data analytics to measure quality performance, guide outcomes improvement and identify potential health disparities in the population, with a focus on the needs of the individual.
“It’s our privilege to have been selected to serve Indiana Medicaid members,” said Humana Healthy Horizons President John Barger. “At Humana, we are proud of our approach to care that is centered on the needs and desires of our members and their health. In partnership with states, providers and communities, we focus on their physical and mental health and well-being and address needs like transportation, nutrition, housing and social connection. Together, we help our MLTSS members stay in their homes and remain connected to the communities they love.”
Humana is one of four health plans recommended for award as part of a statewide Medicaid managed care procurement issued last year. The state contract will provide for an initial four-year term of service that takes effect in 2024, with the option of renewal terms thereafter.
The awards also allow managed care organizations to continue serving those dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare through Medicare Advantage Dual Special Needs Plans (D-SNPs), while ensuring plans deliver a seamless, integrated health care experience for D-SNP members.
As of Dec. 31, 2022, Humana serves a total of nearly 350,000 Hoosiers through Humana Medicare Advantage plans, Medicare prescription drug plans, commercial group and ASO health plans, and the TRICARE military health care program as administered by Humana. Humana’s participation in Indiana’s Medicaid program will allow the company to bring its services to more people across the state.
