  • A new Humana study found that value-based care can drive down acute care episodes among Medicare Advantage (MA) beneficiaries. According to the research, MA members treated by doctors in advanced value-based care models had 5.6 percent fewer hospitalizations and 13.4 percent fewer emergency department visits compared to those treated in fee-for-service arrangements. In its most recent value-based care report, Humana also found that the members enrolled in its value-based care programs also had a 60 percent lower risk of readmission after 30 days.
