Insurance company Humana (NYSE: HUM) is partnering up with pharmacy retail business Walgreens Boots Alliance in a new pilot deal to operate senior-focused primary care clinics.
The deal will establish the clinics inside two Walgreens stores in Kansas City, Missouri, operated by Partners in Primary Care, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Humana. The venture could also expand to other markets over time, the companies announced Wednesday.
The clinics are scheduled to open this fall and will complement Walgreens pharmacy services and the the four Partners in Primary Care locations that opened in Kansas City in 2017. Partners in Primary Care is a primary medical group practice operating in South Carolina, North Carolina, Kansas and Missouri.
“This unique partnership supports Humana’s multi-faceted approach to health care in this community and is a continuation of our senior-focused care strategy which is centered on integrating care through clinical programs that intersect health and lifestyle,” Bruce Broussard, Humana president and CEO, said in a statement.
