Aetna Better Health of Florida and Emcara Health are partnering to provide value-based primary care to 240,000 Aetna Medicaid members across the state.
Emcara is the provider arm of PopHealthCare, a subsidiary of GuideWell. Emcara's value-based primary care model, which includes behavioral health and social determinants of health assessments, will be extended to Aetna's adult Medicaid members, according to an October 5 news release.
The partnership will launch first in the Tampa, Orlando and Miami regions. In-home care teams will consist of complex care physicians, community health workers, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, physical and behavioral health care coordinators and licensed clinical social workers.
