For Members on Medicare: Medicare Advantage
If you retire and are currently a Humana member enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B, you will automatically be enrolled in Humana’s Medicare Advantage PPO plan. Retirees enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B and enrolled in another Medicare plan may choose to switch to Humana’s Medicare Advantage plan. This plan is available if you live anywhere in the United States or Puerto Rico and if you use providers that have accepted the terms of the Medicare Advantage plan.
For 2016, Humana’s Medicare Advantage will provide the same Uniform Benefits for in-network and out-of-network services. Additional benefits and services are also available, such as enhanced preventive benefits which covers 22 services at 100% including bone mass measurement and depression screening, Humana’s 24-hour nurse helpline, HumanaVitality and the Silver Sneakers fitness program. To get more information, including an enrollment kit with a provider directory, call Humana Group Medicare Enrollment at 1-855-STOFWIH or 1-855-786-3944. Participants of Humana's Medicare Advantage are not eligible to receive the Well Wisconsin Incentive.
