Humana Medicare Advantage plans offer the same benefits as Original Medicare (Part A and Part B), and certain plans may offer extra benefits such as routine dental and vision care, prescription drug coverage and more.
All Medicare Advantage (Medicare Part C) plans include the same benefits that are offered by Original Medicare (Part A and Part B). 2023 Humana Medicare Advantage plans may also offer a wide range of extra benefits that Original Medicare doesn’t cover, for an affordable – and sometimes $0 – monthly plan premium.
These extra benefits can include services and tools such as:
- Prescription drug coverage
- Mail-delivery pharmacies
- $0 telehealth copays for in-network primary care physician appointments over video or phone
- SilverSneakers® fitness programs
Some, but not all, Humana Medicare Advantage plans may offer a number of these extra benefits. Your coverage will depend on which Humana Medicare Advantage plan you have.
If you don’t currently have a Humana Medicare Advantage plan, you can get more information by calling a licensed insurance agent1 at 1-800-472-2986 TTY Users: 711 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or by requesting a free plan quote online, there is no obligation to enroll in a plan.
Do Humana Medicare Advantage plans offer prescription drug coverage?
Many Humana Medicare Advantage plans may offer prescription drug coverage that is equal to or better than that of a standalone Medicare Part D (prescription drug) plan.
Members can choose from a wide range of in-network pharmacies and may even be able to have their prescriptions mailed right to their home.
Not all Humana Medicare Advantage plans offer prescription drug coverage, and benefits may vary from plan to plan. Your insurance provider will detail what medications are covered, the plan’s drug list (formulary) and how much it will cost to fill your prescriptions.
Do Humana Medicare Advantage plans offer routine dental coverage?
Certain Medicare Advantage plans from Humana may offer routine dental benefits not covered by Original Medicare. Your dental coverage depends on which Humana Medicare Advantage plan you have.
Humana offers a range of Optional Supplemental Benefits (OSBs) that you may be able to add to your Humana Medicare Advantage plan for an additional monthly premium.
The OSB’s offered by Humana can include coverage for dental needs such as:
- Routine cleanings and exams
- Dental X-rays
- Tooth extractions
- Root canals
Some, but not all, Humana Medicare Advantage plans offer dental coverage. If you are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan with dental coverage, your insurance provider will detail what dental services are included and what each service costs.
Do Humana Medicare Advantage plans cover routine vision care?
Some, but not all, Humana Medicare Advantage plans offer vision coverage.
Depending on your plan, some of the vision benefits that may be offered can include:
- Routine vision tests
- Discounts on frames and contact lenses
- No waiting periods for Humana members
- Extensive network of EyeMed Vision care providers
SilverSneakers memberships are available with many plans
Humana has partnered with SilverSneakers® Fitness to give Medicare Advantage beneficiaries unlimited and unrestricted access to more than 15,000 fitness locations nationwide at no extra cost.
Some exceptions apply, and this service is not available on all Humana Medicare Advantage plans.
If your Humana Medicare Advantage plan includes SilverSneakers membership, your access to participating fitness locations can include:
- Access to cardio equipment and free weights
- Fitness classes led by certified instructors
- Social events that can allow you to connect with other members
SilverSneakers also offers at-home kits for members who want to start working out at home or for members who can’t get to a fitness location due to injury, illness or other reasons that keep them homebound.
Humana offers Care Managers to qualifying plan members
Some Humana Medicare Advantage plans may provide qualifying members with personalized care and support at home to help you recover from an injury or illness.
Depending on the plan, you may have access to professional caregivers who can help with:
- Meal prep
- Accessing home meal delivery and transportation services
The above coverage options are just a few of the extra benefits that certain Humana Medicare Advantage plans may be able to offer to qualifying members.
Again, it’s important to note that not all of these benefits are available with all Humana Medicare Advantage plans.
