If you retire and are currently a Humana member enrolled in Medicare Parts A & B, you will automatically be enrolled in Humana’s Medicare Advantage Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan. Retirees enrolled in Medicare Parts A & B and enrolled in another Medicare plan, including Original Medicare, may choose to switch to Humana’s Medicare Advantage plan during open enrollment. This plan is available if you live anywhere in the United States or Puerto Rico.

For 2017, Humana’s Medicare Advantage Plan will provide the same Uniform Benefits in-network and out-of-network. Members can use any provider that accepts original Medicare and agrees to bill Humana. Additional benefits and services are also available, such as enhanced preventive benefits covered at 100%, no-cost SilverSneakers Fitness basic membership, and 24-hour nurse helpline.
