Help for members, employees, brokers, employer clients and the community at large includes expanding access to crisis hotline and free counseling
Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), one of the nation’s leading health and well-being companies, announced today that it has launched a series of efforts to assist its members, employees and communities in Florida in the path of Hurricane Irma.
Among those measures, Humana has opened its toll-free crisis intervention hotline and counseling services beyond employees and members to include any individual who may need assistance in those communities impacted by Irma.
Humana has also taken these additional steps:
“Storms like this can take a serious toll beyond the physical destruction, and it’s important that our health plan members know we are fully committed to providing uninterrupted coverage and services,” said Humana President and CEO Bruce Broussard. “In addition, we’re prepared to provide our full resources and support to our employees, our health plan members, our health care provider partners, our brokers and employer clients across the state, and anyone affected by Irma.”
Humana counselors and work/life specialists are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 1-866-440-6556 to provide free, confidential assistance to anyone needing help and support in coping with the disaster and its aftermath. Assistance is available in both English and Spanish.
“A powerful storm like this can seriously impact the well-being of those affected, which is why we’re encouraging not only our members and employees, but also anyone affected by Irma, to call our free and confidential crisis intervention hotline and speak to one of our counselors,” said Broussard.
Humana Medicare, Medicaid, commercial, individual and TRICARE members with questions about services available to them should call the toll-free phone number on the back of their Humana ID card.
