Humana is one of the large private insurance companies that provides Medicare Advantage plans, Medicare prescription drug plans and Medicare Supplement Insurance plans. Humana is contracted with the federal government to provide and administer these plans under the Medicare program, according to Q1Medicare.com.
Humana's Medicare Advantage plans combine drug and medical coverage in one plan, offering more benefits than original Medicare, and many plans include fitness and wellness programs at no extra cost. Medicare prescription drug plans help minimize current out-of-pocket prescription costs and protect against higher costs in the future. Medicare Supplement Insurance plans help cover some of the expenses not covered by Medicare Parts A and B to keep medical expenses more predictable.
Individual plans vary by region. There are currently eleven Humana Medicare Supplement Insurance plans, 236 Medicare Advantage plans, and 26 Medicare prescription drug plans available to Florida residents as of 2015, according to U.S. News. One of the Medicare advantage plans is CareDirect (HMO SNP) Benefits. This plan covers unlimited hospital stays, with a $25 copay for the first five days and nothing beyond that. There is no copay to see a PCP and a $15 copay to see a specialist. Diagnostic tests cost up to $25, depending on the service. This plan includes limited dental coverage.
