LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Oct. 10, 2017) – Humana Inc. today announced that its medicare plans for 2018 are designed with value in mind, and many plans will include new and enhanced benefits. The changes for 2018 reinforce Humana’s commitment to delivering affordable health plan options that can help people with medicare achieve their best health.
The annual medicare advantage and prescription drug plan enrollment period begins Oct. 15.
Highlights of Humana’s 2018 medicare plans include:
- More medicare plan choices in more places around the country
- More plans with fitness and wellness services
- Humana Walmart Rx prescription drug plan to help members save on medications
- Plan options with low or $0 monthly premiums

Humana has served medicare beneficiaries for three decades, with more than 8.5 million Medicare members in all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico, as of June 30, 2017. Nearly 3.3 million of those members are enrolled in a medicare advantage plan, which often provides them with extra coverage, such as prescription drug coverage and dental, hearing and vision benefits.
“People with medicare rely on their health plan,” said Alan Wheatley, president, Retail Segment at Humana. “That’s why we’re enhancing many of our plan offerings in 2018, investing more in our plans’ value and including benefits and services that offer a more personalized approach to health coverage – to help meet the unique health needs and goals of our members.”
Preserving the stability of benefits and premiums in 2018 was a priority, and a significant percentage of Humana’s current medicare advantage members will experience comparable or enhanced value in their 2018 plans and benefits.
During the annual election period, which runs from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, 2017, people with medicare can choose medicare advantage and prescription drug plans for the upcoming year.
