Effective March 13, 2024, Community Care Physicians will no longer participate in Humana. If you have this insurance, we are not discharging you from our practice and will continue to see you, but you should select another insurance to avoid paying out of pocket for your care. We accept many insurance plans from which you can choose that offer comparable coverage.
