For each community

We count every town, city and community where our members, patients, and employees live as our hometowns. We’re committed to making an impact on each of these places and the people that call them home.

Part of our Environmental, Social and Governance impact platform

Our commitment to making it easier for people to achieve their best health is part of the foundation of our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) impact platform. This platform sets the direction for how we continue to advance health equity, address needs in our communities and drive sustainable change.

The Humana Foundation

The Humana Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Humana Inc. It works to ensure seniors, veterans and school-aged children live connected, healthy lives by removing unnecessary barriers in healthcare.

$22.5 million donated in 2022

In 2022, the Humana Foundation donated more than $22,500,000 toward building healthier communities.

$13.5 million toward research, development and innovation

We support the UofL Health Equity Innovation Hub, which works to advance health equity and improve health outcomes for marginalized populations in Louisville and communities around the world.

$1.5 million toward disaster relief and recovery

We’re focused on helping people in crisis after the Eastern Kentucky Flooding, Hurricane Ian, and other disaster events, including short-term response needs and longer-term infrastructure needs.

$13 million on World Mental Health Day

This year, we announced our elevated focus on addressing disparities in mental health and nutrition among underrepresented populations, including vulnerable seniors, veterans, and youth.

$14 million toward the next generation of leaders

The Foundation provided scholarships to the children of 250 employees, including 75 new recipients and 175 renewals—totaling nearly $14 million awarded since the program began in 2001.

$2.2 million toward employees’ favorite causes

Humana Foundation matched $2.2 million in employee charitable giving donations to 4,414 causes.

Humana’s focus on health equity

  • Addressing social needs

    Our Social Determinants of Health benefits address health-related social needs like food, housing, transportation, loneliness and financial strain. We’re always improving and testing new benefits, tools and resources, including Humana Community Navigator®, a directory of resources across the United States that help our members find and connect to the resources they need.

  • Innovating and training

    We’re continually working to ensure our members are receiving culturally competent care. In South Florida, we implemented a cultural humility and implicit bias clinician training pilot for providers. We also launched screenings to help us understand the impact low health literacy has on the health of our members, conducting over 48,000 health literacy screenings in 2022.

  • Enhancing our data and insights

    This year, we transformed the way we capture data needed to identify members who may need health-related social need interventions—allowing us to better tailor our offerings to fit our members’ needs. Thanks to our multi-domain Health Equity Index and new reports within our Population Health Analytics Suite, it’s now easier for Humana associates to access the data needed to develop strategies to best serve our members.

Strategic partnerships and sponsorships

We work with organizations to help establish and expand numerous impactful initiatives that advance health equity in communities across the country, including:

  • Feeding America
  • National Alliance on Mental Illness
  • National Senior Games
  • Volunteers of America
  • Boys & Girls Clubs of America

Serving military families

Humana is also focused on improving health outcomes for members of the military, Veterans and their families. We’ve partnered with Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and other national Veteran Service Organization (VSO) partners to address health-related social needs that impact military families most through Humana’s National Veteran Bold Goal effort.
