Will My Doctor Accept My Humana Medicare Plan?

Whether or not your doctor will accept your Humana Medicare plan depends on what Medicare plan you have and if your doctor is in your plan network.

Humana offers three different types of Medicare plans: Medicare Advantage plans, Medicare stand-alone prescription drug plans and Medicare Supplement Insurance plans.

Each type of plan has different network rules.

Humana Medicare Advantage Plans

If you are enrolled in a Humana Medicare Advantage plan, your network will depend on the type of plan you have, such as a HMO, a PPO or a PFFS. Each plan has different rules about which medical providers and facilities you can use and what the plan will cover.1

If you have the Humana Gold Plus® HMO plan, you must choose an in-network primary care doctor. If you visit a doctor outside of your plan’s network, you may be responsible for paying some or all of your medical costs. You should ask your doctor if they are in your plan’s network before receiving any treatment or you may be responsible for paying some or all of your medical costs.

If you have the HumanaChoice® PPO plan, you can visit any Medicare-approved doctor who accepts Humana’s plan terms and agrees to bill the plan. You should ask your doctor if they accept the plan terms before receiving any treatment or you may be responsible for paying some or all of your medical costs. You typically pay less out-of-pocket if you visit an in-network provider.

If you have the Humana Gold Choice® PFFS plan, you can visit almost any Medicare-approved doctor who accepts Humana’s plan terms and agrees to bill the plan. You should ask your doctor if they accept the plan terms before receiving any treatment or you may be responsible for paying some or all of your medical costs.

Humana Medicare Prescription Drug Plans

Medicare stand-alone prescription drug plans only provide prescription drug coverage. Your costs may depend on the pharmacy you use.

Depending on the Humana prescription drug plan you choose, your copayments and coinsurance may be less expensive if you fill them at certain network pharmacies.2 If you are unsure if your pharmacy is a preferred cost-sharing pharmacy, you should call and ask your insurance provider before you fill your prescriptions.

Humana Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans

Medicare Supplement Insurance plans (also called Medigap) work with Original Medicare and can help cover some of the out-of-pocket costs not covered by Medicare Part A and Part B, such as Medicare copayments, coinsurance and deductibles.3

Medicare Supplement Insurance plan availability can vary by state.
