Humana Medicare Advantage Special Needs plans (SNPs)

Specialized coverage for special health needs

These plans are available to individuals with certain chronic diseases. To qualify for a Chronic Disease Special Needs plan, physician diagnosis of the disease must be verified. Enrollees whose condition is not verified will be disenrolled.
