Humana and Towson, Md.-based SurgCenter Development entered an agreement adding more than 100 SurgCenter Development locations to Humana's national provider network, effective Feb. 1.
Three things to know:
1. The agreement expands Humana members' access to total knee, hip and shoulder replacements in an ASC setting.
2. SurgCenter Development has an operational portfolio of 114 multispecialty, orthopedic-driven ASCs, with 16 additional facilities under development.
3. SurgCenter Development's more than 1,800 physician partners have performed 38,000-plus joint replacements since rolling out programs to shift these cases to the outpatient setting.
"We're excited to take this step and significantly expand and enhance Humana members' access to total joint replacement outside the hospital, in a surgery center setting, through this national agreement with SurgCenter," Humana Care Decision Insights Medical Director Preeti Jois, MD, said in a press release.
