Humana-owned CAC clinics now stay open longer
Miami Herald, October 20, 2009
As clinic competition heats up in Florida's Miami-Dade County and Congress looks at trimming its payments to Medicare health maintenance organizations, the Humana-owned CAC clinics are expanding services by keeping three clinics open weeknights until 10 p.m. and having doctors make house calls to certain seniors. The CAC centers serve patients in the CarePlus Medicare HMOs. The move comes as CAC's major competitor, Leon Medicare Centers, opens two huge new clinics in Florida, built at a cost of $80 million.
