$0 Premium Humana Honor Plans for VeteransNovember 14, 2019
Humana is one of the biggest Medicare Advantage carriers, with over 8.4 million members across all 50 states (plus D.C. and Puerto Rico). They’ve been active for over three decades! New this year, Humana is providing a “Humana Honor” Medicare Advantage plan.
Uniquely, though it is “available to anyone eligible for Medicare” who lives in the service area, this Medicare Advantage plan is designed to complement VA (Veteran’s Affairs) coverage. Many veterans think they have no use for Medicare Advantage (or even Medicare at all) due to their VA coverage, but a plan like this could be a game-changer.
Do you Need Medicare if you have VA Coverage?
For some people, the VA may provide all the coverage you need. But, if you can get additional coverage at no extra cost, why not take it?
Plus, even though there are 1,921 VA facilities across the country, wait times can be a problem. You can use this tool to find out what your local wait times are, but you might not need to if you have additional coverage. If you also have Medicare (and if you have Medicare Advantage), your network can be expanded to many more local doctors and other medical facilities, where you may have an easier time getting an appointment.
Plus, the VA does not automatically provide dental coverage to all veterans. You can purchase it through the VADIP (VA Dental Insurance Program), but you might not need to. If it makes sense for you and if it is available in your area, you can instead enroll in a Humana Honor or other Medicare Advantage plan that includes a dental benefit.
What’s Great About Humana Honor?
Humana’s new Honor plan includes:
- $0 premiums + a Part B give back (Part B premium reduction)
- Closing VA coverage gaps
- Broad network, including urgent care facilities
- Dental coverage
Humana Honor is available as 17 different plans available in 28 states:

Humana Taking Care of Veterans
Humana has strong relationships with (and is the national Medicare plan carrier for) the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) and AMVETS (American Veterans). Infact, Humana partnered with the VWF’s “Uniting to Combat Hunger” campaign and helped raise money for over 500,000 veteran meals.
Humana has also contributed over one million dollars to the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities, an organization that serves post-9/11 veterans. They also sponsor the Washington, D.C. Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Run during Memorial Day weekend, as well as the Wounded Warrior’s “Warrior Games.”
Additionally, Humana’s administration has hired over 4,500 veterans and veteran spouses since 2011.
Whether you like Humana’s Medicare Advantage plans or not, you have to give them props for their work with veterans and veteran families!
We’re proud to offer Humana plans through our insurance brokers and are excited to be a part of providing veterans with the care they deserve.
