More About This Carrier

We are dedicated to making business decisions that reflect our commitment to improving the health and well-being of our members, our associates, the communities we serve, and our planet.

Bold Goal

We’ve set a goal for ourselves: to make the communities we serve 20 percent healthier by 2020. We know that people’s health is directly linked to the habits of those around them, the structure of their communities, their environment, and the performance of the healthcare system as a whole. To achieve our Bold Goal, we must improve all of those areas.

At Humana, we see opportunities to improve our country’s healthcare system; to offer more people affordable access to care; to make it easier to eat healthily and exercise; and to engage individuals in taking responsibility for their own health improvement. We have already started addressing opportunities for improving health among our associates and our members through our services and our provider and community partners.

Stay Smart, Stay Healthy

For decades, companies like Humana have tried to explain health insurance concepts through mediums such as printed brochures, member handbooks and explanation-of-benefit statements that seemed to explain very little. That’s a problem because members who don’t know the difference between an HMO and a PPO or don’t understand what a health saving account is can’t choose and use health benefits effectively and efficiently.

As a result, Humana created Stay Smart Stay Healthy, a new-media venture designed to simplify the complex world of health insurance and communicate with healthcare consumers in a way they want and makes sense to them. The program’s goal is simple: to educate consumers on the healthcare system through an informative and engaging series of videos. These videos answer fundamental questions: Why is healthcare so expensive? How does health insurance work? What is consumer-directed healthcare? The two-to-four-minute videos are posted on YouTube, where anyone can view them, create links to them and comment on them. Stay Smart Stay Healthy videos were the most viewed healthcare videos in the ion segment of YouTube for the week they were launched.
