Are you wondering if Humana covers detox and addiction treatment services?
Humana Health Insurance, based out of Louisville, Kentucky, as of 2020 was reported to have over 20 million members and roughly 46,000 employees, making it one of the largest national healthcare providers in the country. The company is known for holding itself to a high set of standards, working to make adequate healthcare more widely accessible while improving the quality of healthcare delivered to the communities it works with. There are numerous plans available through Humana, the most popular being Medicare and Medicaid plans. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services described the differences between Medicare and Medicaid. Medicare is an insurance program that predominantly serves men and women over the age of 65. However, Medicare can also serve dialysis patients and younger disabled men and women, depending on their healthcare needs. This federal program requires low monthly premiums for non-hospital coverage, and patients pay part of costs through deductibles for hospital visits (and some other medical costs). Medicaid, on the other hand, is an assistance program that was developed to serve low-income men, women and families of any age. In most instances, patients are not required to pay any part of the cost for covered medical expenses, though a small copay might be requested under some circumstances. This federal-state program varies on a state-to-state basis, and it is run by local or state governments (within federal guidelines).
