Anthem, Humana Make Deals to Expand Clinics

In acquiring Aetna, CVS Health Corp. promoted the value of integrating health benefits with the company’s thousands of existing pharmacies and retail clinics (see story, p. 1). Other health insurance carriers seem to have taken heed, as national health plans such as Anthem, Inc. and Humana Inc. recently have sought to establish or expand clinics in a variety of markets.

Anthem is contracting with CareMax Inc. “to build medical centers in areas where Anthem will offer a value-based care model to improve patient outcomes,” per an Aug. 13 press release. Meanwhile, Humana will expand its Humana Neighborhood Centers line of clinics, which already operate in Asheville and Greensboro, to several other North Carolina markets including Charlotte.
