Washington, D.C. – Today, Humana Military reached an agreement with Samaritan Medical Practice on a one-year contract that will allow 22 specialists to continue to treat Fort Drum soldiers and their families.
Throughout the past month, Congresswoman Stefanik’s office has worked with Senators Schumer and Gillibrand, held conference calls with Samaritan Medical, and participated in meetings with Humana Military to discuss the unique relationship Fort Drum has with the surrounding health care community.
“Over the past month, I have worked diligently to help facilitate an agreement between Humana Military and Samaritan Medical,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Fort Drum soldiers and their families have unique needs, and without a hospital on post, it is all the more important that their health care processes run smoothly. I am thankful that Humana and Samaritan have reached an agreement today, and I’m proud that I played a role in this critical effort to ensure Fort Drum soldiers and their families are taken care of and do not experience any lapse in health care coverage or services.”
