During this important time of the year, Humana is available to provide guidance and support. A leading health and well-being company, Humana is offering two Medicare Advantage plans for the kupuna of Hawaii this AEP.

Our $0 monthly premium HMO plan offers extra benefits, such as $0 doctor’s office visit copays, rides to your doctor’s office, a gym membership at no additional cost, convenient mail-order and local retail prescription coverage, and dental, vision and hearing coverage. Our $34 monthly premium PPO plan offers benefits similar to our HMO plan along with the security of Humana’s national Choice Care Network and the ease of self-referral to specialists.

Speaking of network, we recently announced a new accountable care relationship with MDX Hawaii, which will provide members with a choice of more than 3,700 qualified providers. In addition, the relationship will provide members with high-quality care that can lead to improved medical outcomes, a better customer experience and lower costs.

Remember, you have until Dec. 7 to pick the right plan for you.
