Humana physicians practice under several
operating brands, whether Continucare,
Metcare, CAC Florida, or Partners in
Primary Care.

Humana listens to physicians like you who
deliver care to help us rethink how patients
can be healthier and happier. This includes
reinventing the way Humana-employed
physicians are rewarded to spend their
workday; so, they can have both more time
with their patients and a healthy work-life
balance.

At Humana, you can be dedicated to more
than just your career, without sacrificing
compensation. For instance, weve
learned that many physicians meet their
compensation goals by increasing patient panel
size, which means less time at home.
Humana is committed to changing that
dynamic. We are on a mission to improve
population health and simplify the ways
you can achieve better outcomes with
your patients
