In 2013-2014 the Lee Physician Hospital Organization (Lee PHO) launched the
Clinical Integration Program with the initial focus being the population of the
Lee Employee Health Plan. Since then we have added other commercial plans –
Florida Blue and Aetna, plus a Medicare Advantage plan – United Healthcare. The
Clinical Integration Program has accomplished significant success in reducing
the overall cost of care and has distributed more than $4 million in shared
savings to participating physicians.
We are excited to announce that, in collaboration with many of your physician
colleagues leading the effort, we are moving to the next phase in our clinical
integration journey. This new initiative will bring the clinical integration
program to a higher level with a focus on the wider Southwest Florida Region to
Include all specialties.
With this change comes a new beginning and a new name. The Lee PHO will sunset on August 31,
2019 and will transition to Innovatus Health as of September 1, 2019.
As of September 1, 2019, all current agreements will be reassigned to Innovatus
Health**, with a few exceptions.
The following legacy Lee PHO plans are
being terminated as of August 31, 2019. If you wish to contract directly with
any of these plans the contact information is provided below:
**The Lee Employee Health Plan (WebTPA) will still be available through Innovatus Health.
The Lee PHO has been an important and successful part of our journey because of
your ongoing support and participation - for that we are truly grateful! We look
forward to continuing the collaboration we have shared over the last 25 years in
bringing efficient and high quality healthcare to the patients in our network.
