CHARLESTON, SC, June 29, 2022 — Liberty Doctors, one of South Carolina’s largest independent primary care physician groups, is introducing a new value-based care program with the goal of creating a better healthcare experience for senior patients. Freedom Senior Care Advantage embraces the value-based care model, which emboldens the primary care physician to serve as the care quarterback, creating a better-quality experience for seniors.
Freedom Senior Care Advantage was designed because of a new partnership with agilon health (agilon), a company that empowers physicians to transform health care in our communities. The program accelerates the transition to value-based care, also known as a “total care” model of health care — where physicians are responsible for treating the whole patient rather than just the disease. This approach enables physicians to spend more time with patients and to provide superior care that is more efficient and economical.
“With the help of agilon health, we will be pioneering value-based care, a new delivery method that is changing the healthcare landscape in America today,” said Lissa Lara, CEO of Liberty Doctors. “Our focus on delivering value-based care aligns with our mission to be the independent physician practice model of the future, transform communities, and improve the lives of our patients. We believe Freedom Senior Care Advantage will enhance the high quality of care Liberty Doctors is known for.”
“We are excited to welcome Liberty Doctors to agilon health’s physician network,” said Steve Sell, Chief Executive Officer, agilon health. “Our partnership will enable Liberty Doctors to enhance and sustain the delivery of value-based primary care to their senior patients across South Carolina.”
Freedom Senior Care Advantage will be open to all Liberty Doctors patients who age-in to Medicare and are eligible, or those enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan through the practice. This program is not a health plan, and Liberty Doctors may work with other health plans in their service areas. More information is available by contacting Liberty Doctors.
