Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls and West Valley Medical Center in Caldwell have agreed to continue to provide in-network medical care to all Medicare Advantage members enrolled in plans offered by Humana.
Humana Inc., headquartered in Louisville, Ky., is one of the nation’s largest publicly traded health and specialty benefits companies. Under the renewed contract, members of Humana’s Medicare Advantage products will have in-network benefit access to all inpatient, outpatient and emergency services provided by both hospitals.
EIRMC, the largest and most comprehensive medical facility in the region, is located at 3100 Channing Way in Idaho Falls. West Valley Medical Center, a 150-bed, nationally accredited facility, is located at 1717 Arlington Ave. in Caldwell. Both hospitals are part of the Hospital Corp. of America (HCA) family.
Both Idaho hospitals will provide in-network care to members of Humana’s Medicare Advantage health maintenance organization, preferred provider organization and private fee-for-service health plans. Humana has approximately 30,500 members in Idaho.
Kathy Moore, chief executive officer at West Valley Medical Center, said the agreement will not alter services being provided by the hospital to Humana members.
