Humana Plan Finder: How to Find and Compare Plans
- You can use this Medicare plan finder to compare Humana Medicare plans, depending on the type of coverage you need. Learn about Medicare drug plans, Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement plans from Humana.
How do you know which type of Medicare coverage is right for you, and how can you find a Humana plan available in your area? Our Humana plan finder guide can help.
|Plan Type||What Your Coverage Can Do||Find Plans|
|Medicare Advantage (Medicare Part C)||
- One all-inclusive plan that covers your Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) benefits and prescription drug coverage
|Medicare Supplement (Medigap)||
- One plan that fills some of your Part A and Part B "gaps," such as copays, coinsurance and deductibles- No provider or hospital network restrictions
- Your plan is accepted by any doctor or provider who accepts Original Medicare
If you just want Medicare drug coverage, you can add a stand-alone prescription drug plan called a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan (PDP). You can compare Part D plans from insurance companies who offer plans where you live, which may include Humana Part D prescription drug plans.
Humana Medicare Advantage Plans
Medicare Advantage, or Medicare Part C, provides all the same benefits as Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) while also adding some extra coverage for things not found in Original Medicare. In the case of Humana, those extra benefits can include coverage for routine dental care, over-the-counter health products, prescription drugs, telehealth and more.
Humana offers four basic types of Medicare Advantage plans:
- HMO (Health Maintenance Organization)
Humana HMO plans utilize a primary care physician to coordinate care within a network of participating providers and the plan may only be used within the network.
- PPO (Preferred Provider Organization)
PPO plans utilize a network of participating providers for maximum savings while also allowing members to seek care outside of the network and still receive at least partial coverage with no need to obtain a referral. PPO and HMO are the two most common types of Medicare Advantage plans.
- PFFS (Private Fee-For-Service)
These Humana plans allow you to visit any Medicare-approved provider who accepts the terms of the plan.
- SNP (Special Needs Plans)
A Special Needs Plan is built around the specific needs of a patient with a particular health condition like diabetes, heart failure, lung disorders and more.

Humana Medicare Part D Plans
A Humana Medicare Part D plan provides coverage for prescription medications, which is an area not covered by Original Medicare.
Humana offers three Part D plans in most areas, each with its own monthly premium, annual deductible and list of covered drugs.
Find out what Medicare Part D plans are available where you live.
Humana Medicare Supplement Plans
Medicare Supplement, also called Medigap, works alongside your Original Medicare benefits by picking up the cost of some of Medicare out-of-pocket expenses like deductible, copayments and coinsurance.

When to Enroll in Humana Medicare Plans
The time at which you may enroll in a Humana Medicare plan depends partly on the type of coverage that you choose.
It’s important to keep in mind that Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare Supplement plans are different. You can’t have each type of plan at the same time.
- Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare Part D plans including the ones offered by Humana may be purchased during your Initial Enrollment Period. Your seven-month Medicare IEP begins three months before your 65th birthday, includes your birthday month and continues for three more months.
These plans may also be purchased during the Annual Enrollment Period, often called the fall Medicare Open Enrollment Period. This Medicare open enrollment period lasts from October 15 to December 7 each year.
You may potentially be eligible for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP), depending on your individual circumstances.
- Humana Medicare Supplement plans may be purchased at any time during the year, but the best time to do so is during your Medigap Open Enrollment Period. Your Medigap OEP is a six-month period that begins the day you are enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B and at least 65 years old (in most states).
