Personal Nurse Get a trusted partner

Our Personal Nurse® service helps you take charge of your health and fit healthy choices into your life — at no additional cost.

Your Personal Nurse service

If you are dealing with a serious condition like diabetes or high blood pressure, your Personal Nurse will keep regular contact with you. Work with your Personal Nurse to:

  • Stay informed. With a nurse, you can identify health goals, explore treatment options, make informed decisions, and take control of your health.
  • Collaborate on your healthcare. The Personal Nurse service doesn't replace your doctor. Instead, the nurse will help you communicate with your caregivers and work with your doctor so you can make decisions with confidence.
  • Get personal. You work with one specific nurse. And you'll be able to stay with your Personal Nurse as long as you remain a Humana member.
  • Have a sounding board. The Personal Nurse will help you gain control of your health – not just manage your symptoms. Sometimes having someone to talk to can mean the difference between your controlling a disease and it controlling you.

There for you

Personal Nurses work flexible hours, so they can always accommodate your schedule. During your phone calls, you and your nurse will decide on future times to talk. In addition, when you begin working with a Personal Nurse, you'll receive a welcome letter with his or her business card and phone extension. Whenever you need to, you can contact your Personal Nurse and speak confidentially.

360 degrees of service

Our Personal Nurse service doesn't just provide education specific to your health. You work with them to understand benefits, navigate the healthcare maze, work more effectively with your doctor, and make smart health decisions with confidence.

There when you need it

A Personal Nurse may make the first contact — if you have a new diagnosis, change medications, or have certain tests or procedures. If you receive a call from a Personal Nurse, remember there is no additional cost to you. Partnering with a Personal Nurse may help you better manage your health.
