Falls Church, Va. – Oct 7, 2020 Inova Health System, the leading nonprofit healthcare provider in Northern Virginia, today announced an agreement with Humana Inc. (NYSE HUM) to expand health care options for Humana Medicare Advantage members in Northern Virginia and the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Inova serves more than two million individuals annually through an integrated network of hospitals, primary and specialty care practices, emergency and urgent care centers, outpatient services and destination institutes.

“As the leading health system in Northern Virginia, and the largest system in the country to have each hospital earn five stars for quality and safety from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Inova’s mission is to provide world-class healthcare – every time, every touch – to each person in every community we have the privilege to serve,” said Stephen J. Motew, MD, MHA, FACS, Chief, Clinical Enterprise, Inova. “This agreement with Humana will enable greater choice for Medicare Advantage enrollees in Northern Virginia and enhance access to the world-class providers and services available through Inova Health System.”

The new agreement, already in effect, means current Humana Medicare Advantage members will now have in-network access to Inova’s five hospitals, multiple outpatient facilities, and close to 2,200 individual practitioners across the region.

“We are thrilled to offer in-network access to Inova Health System’s quality medical facilities and health care practitioners for our Medicare Advantage members in Northern Virginia,” said Shawn D. Gallagher, Regional Vice President of Provider Experience, Humana. “As a leading Medicare Advantage carrier across the Commonwealth of Virginia, this new relationship with Inova Health System will allow Humana to advance our mission to improve the health and well-being of the members we serve.”
