*****PRESS RELEASE ********
Starting January 1, 2021, Medical Clinic of Houston, L.L.P., a renowned medical group, has partnered with Devoted Health’s Medicare Advantage network
HOUSTON – December 1 – Devoted Health, a next-generation Medicare Advantage plan on a mission to transform healthcare for seniors, continued its rapid expansion in Houston this fall, creating a new partnership with Medical Clinic of Houston, L.L.P.
Medical Clinic of Houston, L.L.P., often referred to as “The Sunset Clinic,” has been providing high-quality medical care to Houston residents for over 50 years. Its partnership with Devoted Health will be the first of its kind. The Clinic has not previously participated in a Medicare Advantage plan. Established patients of all Clinic physicians who can enroll in Medicare now have access to Devoted Health’s Medicare Advantage plans.
MCH physicians were looking for a Medicare Advantage option which would offer our established patients the most robust coverage available. “After investigating Devoted Health, we found it is an organization that has an excellent track record, was willing to work with our Clinic, and has a health plan we felt comfortable offering to our patients and families,” said Dr. Martin White, MCH’s Managing Partner.
“Our partnership with Medical Clinic of Houston is a big win for our members,” said Jim Korry, Devoted Health’s Vice President of Operations for Houston. “This group is one of the strongest in the Houston area. Locals know and love the clinic, and we know that our members will be getting the outstanding care that we want for them.”
Devoted Health has more than 6,000 members in the Greater Houston area. In addition to working with Medical Clinic of Houston, Devoted Health has also expanded its coverage area. As of this fall, Medicare-eligible residents in Brazoria, Galveston, and Walker counties can sign up for the company’s Core and Prime HMO plans. Both plans offer a rich array of benefits—which can include $0 copays for PCP appointments, prescription drugs starting at $0, $2,000 to spend on dental care, and a free gym membership. Devoted Health’s plans were already available to residents in Fort Bend, Harris, Montgomery, and Waller counties.
“From Day 1, our mission has been to create a health plan we would want for our own families. We have put Houston residents at the center of our plans—from hiring to building our network, doing outreach in the community, and crafting our plan benefits,” said Korry. “We are excited to be able to service more Houston area residents this year and make sure they have access to the most trusted doctors in the area.”
