Access to test kits and drive-thru tests
Humana is the first insurer to offer LabCorp® at-home COVID-19 test kits and drive-thru COVID-19 testing at hundreds of Walmart Neighborhood Market pharmacies across the country. Member cost share for this testing is waived for all eligible medical plan employees. Employees can use their Risk Assessment tool, to answer a few simple questions about their risk factors and receive guidance on what to do next. If testing is recommended, employees can opt to have a testing kit mailed to their home within one business day. If an employee prefers a drive-thru test, Humana has teamed up with Walmart, Quest Diagnostics, and PWNHealth to offer drive-thru testing at Walmart Neighborhood Market pharmacies. The pharmacy staff will give your employee a test kit and be there to help them complete the process correctly. See the full details in Humana’s FAQs.

Humana is continuing to waive all member costs (co-pays, deductibles, co-insurance) related to covered COVID-19 testing and treatment
Through the end of 2020, Humana will continue to waive member out-of-pocket costs for telehealth visits (also known as telemedicine) with participating in-network providers, including routine visits for primary and specialty care and even behavioral health services.
Helping employees as they return to the workplace
Humana is providing safety kits to all medically insured employees: approximately 6.4 million people. The safety kit contains two washable face masks as well as health advice and information about how Humana can support their employees as they seek care. Employees will begin to receive the safety kits at their homes in July 2020.
If an employee needs more than two masks to help facilitate a safe return to the workplace, Humana has collaborated with JPR Medical to secure preferred pricing on personal protective equipment (PPE) for all employers. Visit humana.jprmedical.com to learn more.
