Privia Health Enters into Capitated Medicare Advantage Agreements
ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Privia Health Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRVA) announced that two of its Accountable Care Organizations (“ACOs”) in Florida and the Mid-Atlantic region have entered into capitated arrangements with HealthFirst Health Plan and Humana, respectively. These agreements will cover healthcare services provided to approximately 23,000 Medicare Advantage beneficiaries effective January 1, 2022.
“Our strategy is to align with our provider partners and provide the tools, technology and talent to better manage patient care and leverage our expertise in underwriting risk to help drive sustainable success as we move into capitated arrangements,” said Privia Health CEO Shawn Morris. “These contracts represent our forward progress in having our ACOs take increasing financial risk for a breadth of healthcare services delivered to Medicare Advantage beneficiaries.
“Privia Health’s ACOs and our physician and provider partners have been successful in a variety of value-based arrangements that contain upside and significant downside financial risk. Along with our payer partners, we and our providers are aligned and engaging these Medicare patients to succeed together in reducing unnecessary costs, achieving better outcomes, and improving patient health and provider well-being,” Morris added.
The Company expects to recognize approximately $230 million in practice collections and GAAP revenue in full-year 2022 related to these two arrangements. The per member per month (“PMPM”) care management fees will cover the cost of additional medical services to be provided under these contractual arrangements and will replace the significantly lower fee-for-service practice collections previously recognized for services rendered to these Medicare Advantage beneficiaries.
The Company’s physician and practice expense will now include all medical costs covered under these contracts associated with these Medicare Advantage beneficiaries.
Privia Health expects to provide its initial financial guidance for full-year 2022 when it reports fourth quarter and year-end 2021 financial results in March, including the assumed impact of these contracts.
