Effective April 22, 2018, Humana accepted our practice’s termination of our provider agreement, which will prevent us from seeing you as in-network providers. We wanted to explain what has transpired.
Since the inception of our practice decades ago, we have always been participating providers with Humana. However, we reviewed our agreement earlier this year and approached Humana for a rate that would reflect the value of our services in today’s dollars. We have attempted unsuccessfully to continue to remain in their network at rates that would allow providers such as Pikes Peak Anesthesia to continue to recruit and retain physicians to our community practices.
PPAA’s Out-of-Network policy will apply to all Humana patients beginning April 22nd for surgeries at the locations listed below.
- Penrose Hospital
- St. Francis Medical Center
- Audubon Surgery Center (Fillmore & Union)
- Audubon Surgery Center at St. Francis
- Surgical Center of the Rockies
- Pinnacle Surgery Center

Thank you for your support,
Pikes Peak Anesthesia Associates
