Humana Vitality is a comprehensive, incentive-based wellness program that integrates rewards with health. This program provides all covered members with the tools and support necessary to help make healthy lifestyle choices. All participants, regardless of physical health and current wellness behaviors, will begin the program at the same level, and acknowledgement of existing behaviors (such as tobacco use) will not adversely affect member premiums. Members will be rewarded for making healthy lifestyle choices with points that can be redeemed for a variety of gifts. They will also receive various levels of status from bronze to platinum based on the amount of points they accumulate. Humana Vitality tracks your information through automatic date feeds from participating partners such as gyms and doctors, so the member can focus on investing time in making healthy lifestyle choices. Why this is different and why it will work: Humana Vitality engaged individuals have significantly lower claims compared to all other members and non-members. The more an individual engages in the program, the more opportunities to earn incentives and get healthier.

For renewals on or after July 1, 2012, the number of covered employees that have a SILVER status or above on the last day of the plan year will earn you a discount up to 10% on your renewal rates. Members can earn points by taking a health risk assessment, working out, participating in an organized sports league and by having yearly prevention screenings.

  1. Personal Testimony: My family has been covered through Humana this year for the first time. Previously my husband and kids had been covered through several different insurance companies and the service was always an issue. As of this year, we started using Vitality when we heard about it from our current insurance guy. It has been so cool that an insurance company has decided to use what actually matters (wellness) in their plans. My husband and I participate and get to add to our Vitality “bucks” with everything we do in the program. Cool stuff!
