Why should I enroll in one of Humana’s Medicare Advantage or Medicare prescription drug plans?
Humana is a Medicare-approved private insurance company. Humana offers a range of Medicare health and prescription drug plans in many parts of the country.
Humana stands apart from its peers in the insurance market. Here are just a few reasons why beneficiaries may turn to Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plans from Humana:
- One-on-one consulting with a pharmacist (or other trained health care provider) through the Medication Therapy Management (MTM) program to review your medications for eligible members. To qualify, you have to:
Be enrolled in a Humana Medicare Advantage prescription drug plan or stand-alone Medicare Part D prescription drug plan
- Have certain multiple chronic conditions, like Chronic Heart Failure, Osteoporosis, or Diabetes.
- Take at least eight chronic maintenance (Part D) prescription drugs.
- The MyHumana and HumanaPharmacy apps make it easy to manage your healthcare coverage on the go. Once enrolled in one of Humana’s Medicare Advantage or prescription drug plans, you can find providers, look up drug cost information, and more from your cell phone or tablet.
- “Humana in your neighborhood” centers may have customer care specialists that can answer your benefit questions. Some of these centers provide activities such as walking groups, cooking demonstrations, and nutrition seminars.
What Medicare plan options from Humana are available?
There are a wide range of Medicare coverage options from Humana available to fit different health, budget, and coverage needs. Humana’s specific Medicare plan options may vary by location and can include the following types:
Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (Part D): these stand-alone plans work alongside your Medicare Part A and Part B coverage to provide prescription benefits.
Remember, Part A and Part B offer limited coverage for medications, aside from those you’d get in a hospital setting or certain outpatient prescription drugs (such as infusion drugs).
For all other drug coverage, you generally need to enroll in Medicare Part D. Please note that costs may vary depending on the specific medications you take and on plan details. Before enrolling in a Medicare prescription drug plan from Humana, check the plan’s formulary (list of covered drugs) to make sure your medications are covered.
Medicare Supplement insurance plans: these plans may help fill in the “gaps” in your Part A and Part B coverage, such as copayments, coinsurance, and/or deductibles. Since Medicare Supplement insurance plans generally don’t have provider networks, they can be a great option for older adults who travel or live in more than one state. You must receive services from a provider that accepts Medicare assignment.
There are 10 standardized plan types labeled A through N, and not every Medicare plan from Humana is available in every location. Keep in mind that some companies may offer additional innovative benefits.
Medicare Advantage plans: these Medicare health plans offer an alternative way to get your Part A and Part B benefits. Many plans include prescription drug coverage wrapped into the plan. Some of Humana’s Medicare Advantage plans include extra benefits beyond Part A and Part B, such as wellness programs, and/or routine vision or dental care. Please note that if you enroll in this type of Medicare health plan from Humana, you’ll need to keep paying your Medicare Part B premium, in addition to any premium required by your Humana Medicare Advantage plan.
