Support for those who may be impacted by Hurricanes Fiona and Ian

Your safety and well-being remain a top priority for Humana. We have taken these steps to assist our impacted members in declared disaster areas:

  • Waived all requirements for primary care physician (PCP) referrals and prior authorizations for members, where applicable
  • Provided members with the same cost sharing they would receive from an in-network facility even if receiving care outside the network
  • For members with a pharmacy benefit, suspended restrictions on refills to allow for travel difficulties and evacuations
  • Established a free crisis support hotline and counseling services through LifeWorks, aimed not only at health plan employees and members, but also at anyone who may need help and support in the U.S. and Puerto Rico to cope with the disaster and its consequences. The LifeWorks Crisis Support Line is open 24/7 and can be reached at 1-877-757-7587.

Humana members with questions about services available to them should call the toll-free phone number on the back of their Humana ID card. Please notify us if your Access to care was impacted by the Hurricane. Humana is continuing to waive all requirements for referrals and prior authorizations for members that reside in Puerto Rico.

We will work with you to ensure you’re covered during the duration of the emergency or disaster. We will offer this support until:

  • The president, governor, or secretary of Health and Human Services has declared that the disaster or public health emergency has ended
  • All of the above changes become effective immediately after the declaration of a disaster or a public health emergency and will remain in effect for the duration of the declared period and 30 days thereafter

*Some of the above benefit adjustments may not apply to commercial self-funded group members.
