Valera Health becomes a provider to the Humana Network, providing affordable, high-quality mental health care for Medicare Advantage members

NEW YORK, July 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Valera Health, a telehealth provider known for its high-quality, affordable care, today announced that its comprehensive mental health services are now online for select Humana Medicare Advantage members.

Valera’s services are now available to Humana Medicare Advantage members in 10 states with nationwide expansion coming in September.

Valera delivers measurement-based virtual services across the continuum of care from mild to severe mental illness. Valera’s multidisciplinary service model provides therapy, medication management, and case management services in one place.

“We look forward to partnering with Valera Health to support behavioral health needs in our Medicare Advantage population through our mutual footprint,” said Cassie Gochenaur, Humana’s associate vice president for behavioral health. “With growing demand for all levels of behavioral health support, strong partnerships with both in-person and virtual care providers are a key aspect of ensuring quality and timely care for our members.”

Valera’s team-based care model and proprietary technology enable providers to treat patients in health care worker shortage areas (HPSAs) or those who may not be able to access in-person care. Expanding telehealth options make it easier for Humana members to access the care they need through an extensive network of qualified physicians.

Research proves it 25% of Medicare beneficiaries have a mental illness. Through this partnership between Humana and Valera, these expanded care options will offer support to beneficiaries seeking mental health care, including those with serious mental illnesses.

“We are thrilled to be able to serve Humana’s Medicare beneficiaries across the country with high-quality mental health care,” said Dr. Tom Tsang, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Valera Health. “Humana’s continued dedication to the care and well-being of the whole person makes them a great partner in making these critical services accessible and affordable to all who need them.”
