Strong community collaboration for better health

Humana Medicare Advantage (MA) members living in San Antonio saw a 9.8 percent reduction in their unhealthy days – halfway toward achieving their Bold Goal of 20 percent healthier by 2020. While San Antonio, in general, still faces high rates of obesity (27 percent) and physical inactivity (22 percent), Humana MA members saw Unhealthy Days improvements in populations with diabetes, disability and low-income subsidies. New members in San Antonio tended to be healthier, driving both mentally and physically Healthy Days improvements.

San Antonio is our first Bold Goal community and has built a strong foundation for improving health with community partners. Since 2015, the San Antonio Health Advisory Board and Humana have remained committed to setting shared goals and standards to improve community health, and the efforts are working. This year, the focus will be on screening standardization for social determinants of health as well as continued test-and-learn interventions.
