Humana's well-being focus

Introduction

At Humana, we want to do everything we can to help people achieve lifelong well-being by investing in opportunities that allow consumers to live happily with a balanced sense of purpose, belonging, security and health.

Staying well

Staying well is not always an easy task, five behavioral issues—drinking, smoking, poor diet and stress coupled with inactivity—have consumed an estimated 80 percent of the nation's health-care budget over the past 50 years. Because we know that people don't change their behavior easily, we offer a variety of solutions to help people achieve well-being.
