What happens next?
- Humana receives your completed and signed enrollment form
Depending on the plan you enrolled in, Humana does one of the following:
a. If you enrolled in one of Humana's Medicare Advantage plans or prescription drug plans, we send your completed enrollment form to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for approval. You will receive your new Humana ID card within 7-10 business days after Humana gets CMS approval of your enrollment form. Take this card with you whenever you use any of the plan's benefits. You also will receive a Humana Member Benefit Package that contains plan benefit information.
b. If you purchased one of Humana's Medicare Supplement Insurance plans, we begin the process of issuing your policy and printing your new Humana ID card. You will receive your new Humana ID card within 10 business days. Take this card with you whenever you use any of the plans' benefits. You also will receive a copy of your plan benefit information. Your policy includes a 30-day free look period.
When does my coverage begin?
Coverage begins on your effective date. When you enroll determines this date. If your plan includes prescription drug coverage, and if you need to fill prescriptions after your coverage begins but before you receive your ID card, take your online enrollment confirmation page and a copy of your enrollment form to your local Humana in-network retail pharmacy. Be sure to tell the pharmacist which Humana Medicare plan you chose.
