Humana Honor, a Medicare Advantage plan in its second year, designed with U.S. military veterans in mind, expands into 46 states – up from 27 states in 2020.

For all MAPD members, benefits include $0 telehealth copays for primary care physician visits, urgent care, and outpatient behavioral health, $0 copays for COVID-19 testing, and a Health Essentials Kit (up to one per year).

Insulin Savings Program included on about half of Humana’s MAPD plans and a third of PDP plans; members will pay no more than $35 for a 30-day supply of select insulins.

The Healthy Foods Card is available to all members on D-SNP plans.

Included with most MAPD and DSNP plans are key extra benefits like dental, vision, over-the-counter allowance, fitness program memberships, and home-delivered meals following an inpatient hospital stay.

The Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan Annual Election Period begins Oct. 15 and continues through Dec. 7, 2020.

Humana PDP will offer enhancements to its current three plans. For 2021, Humana will again offer a co-branded prescription drug plan with Walmart and Sam’s Club pharmacies.
