Release and Waiver

By registering on the Humana website to participate in the HumanaVitality program, I acknowledge that I am doing so voluntarily and with the understanding that HumanaVitality is not providing medical advice to me in connection with the HumanaVitality program. I understand that any activities, goals, or other health and wellness information presented to me under the HumanaVitality program are not substitutes for a medical professional's evaluation and treatment. I should obtain necessary medical advice about participation in the HumanaVitality program from my personal healthcare providers.

By participating with the HumanaVitality website, and with any social media sharing tools or functions made available to me through such site, I understand that my use of such tools or functions is completely voluntarily. Further, I understand that if I choose to use the social media sharing tools or functions to share my HumanaVitality information on social media websites, I am responsible for the release of my HumanaVitality information. HumanaVitality is not responsible for the transmission of the information or use of the information on any website and HumanaVitality cannot retract or delete the information once it is released. I agree that it is my responsibility to understand social media sharing tools or functions prior to my use and to remove any information I no longer wish to have shared.

I understand that regardless of my physical condition while participating in the HumanaVitality program, certain elements of the HumanaVitality program may involve risk of injuries or aggravation of preexisting injuries, diseases or physical conditions. I fully accept all such risks resulting from participation in the HumanaVitality program and hereby release and discharge HumanaVitality from any and all liability, claims, suits, demands or causes of action which may arise from my participation in the HumanaVitality program.

I understand this Release and Waiver is a binding contractual agreement. I have read it fully; I hereby acknowledge that I understand it; and I voluntarily accept it.

Confidentiality of Participant Data

Your program data is used, shared and protected as outlined in our Notice of Privacy Practices and Internet Privacy Statement.

Notice of the Availability of Reasonable Alternative

We are committed to helping you achieve your best health. Vitality Bucks® earned for participating in HumanaVitality are available to all eligible persons. If you think you might be unable to meet a standard for an activity under the program, you might qualify for an opportunity to earn the same amount of Vitality Bucks by different means. Contact Customer Support at the number listed on the back of your identification card and we will work with you (and, if you wish, with your physician) to provide a reasonable alternative with the same Vitality Bucks value that is right for you, given your current health status.

Unfunded Activities

Certain HumanaVitality activities have charges associated with them which may not be funded by HumanaVitality.

Earning HumanaVitality Bucks

HumanaVitality program participation will be credited only to the individual participant completing the activity. For rules and requirements regarding HumanaVitality participation and earning Vitality Bucks, please review the descriptions of each specific activity.

Unless stated otherwise, you must request Vitality Bucks for certain HumanaVitality activities. These requests must be submitted to HumanaVitality within 90 days of the activity completion. HumanaVitality will not recognize requests for Vitality Bucks credit after 90 days from activity completion. Where appropriate, you must use the designated forms and supply all requested documentation in order for activities to be recognized as being eligible for Vitality Bucks. You may need to provide your Humana ID number to earn Vitality Bucks for certain activities. Please allow up to two weeks from submission for most activities to be credited.

You are responsible for ensuring that HumanaVitality participation and any eligible Vitality Bucks are credited accurately. If you believe that Vitality Bucks have been earned but not properly credited, you may be required to submit supporting documentation or proof to HumanaVitality to correct the discrepancy as necessary. Such requests must be submitted within 120 days of completion of the activity.

For rules and requirements regarding HumanaVitality participation and earning of Vitality Bucks, please review the descriptions of each specific activity.

HumanaVitality Bucks, discounts, or savings are not transferable and may not be combined among participants; nor can they be transferred to a participant's estate, successor or assigns. HumanaVitality Bucks, discounts, or savings do not constitute property of a program participant. A participant forfeits all Vitality Bucks, discounts or savings under HumanaVitality immediately upon termination from the program regardless of the circumstances of termination.

Right to Revoke

HumanaVitality periodically conducts random checks to confirm the accuracy of information received. Submission of incorrect or inaccurate information may result in you not earning or the removal of program Vitality Bucks, discounts and savings.

HumanaVitality is the final authority on qualification for HumanaVitality program participation and Vitality Bucks, discounts and savings and reserves the right to deny or revoke them at any time if HumanaVitality determines that such credit was improperly given.
