Amedisys strikes value-based contract with Aetna

In-home care provider Amedisys has inked a value-based contract to provide care to Aetna Medicare Advantage members. 

The deal was announced by Amedisys CEO Chris Gerard during the company's third-quarter earnings call on Oct. 27.

Mr. Gerard said during the call that the company has similar value-based contracts in the works with other payers. 

"The remaining plans that have been unwilling to engage on models like this should take note," Mr. Gerard said. "In a world where clinical capacity is at a premium, we will not work with payers who fail to see the value that we deliver and the quality outcomes we provide for their members." 

The deal encompasses 22 states, Mr. Gerard said, including 15 states where Amedisys had historically not admitted Aetna patients.
