New Jersey Senior Medical Group, part of one of the largest Korean-American Independent Physician Associations in the United States, and Humana Inc. announced signing an agreement that expands the primary care options for Humana Medicare Advantage members in northern New Jersey.
The agreement, now in effect, adds 27 primary care doctors to the network for Humana Medicare Advantage Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) and Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) members in Bergen County.
New Jersey Senior Medical Group has contracted independent physician offices in Englewood Cliffs, Fort Lee and Palisades Park as part of its Independent Physician Association.
“New Jersey SMG is proud and privileged to partner with Humana in New Jersey,” said Dr. Min Young Cha, chief executive officer and president of New Jersey Senior Medical Group. “SMG is making a strong footprint in New Jersey by serving our SMG Medicare members and the senior community.”
The new agreement means current Humana Medicare Advantage members now have in-network access to New Jersey Senior Medical Group providers. People eligible for Medicare who select a Humana Medicare Advantage plan during the Medicare Annual Election Period, which runs from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7, 2019, will have access to New Jersey Medical Group beginning Jan.1, 2020.
