Humana Announces Monthly Stipend to Reduce Costs for Dental Providers During Pandemic
“Humana understands how the pandemic has impacted so many of the dental practices we work with, and it’s important to us to support them as so many are in the midst of reopening their practices,” said
At the end of each month, Humana will send a stipend to its dental provider partners, based on the total number of claims for Humana members that month. In addition to this financial support, Humana is also offering 24/7 access to its EAP and Work-Life Services to providers in its dental networks. These actions are a part of the company’s wide-ranging proactive approach to supporting a better health care experience for its members, especially during this unprecedented health crisis.
“As our dental providers focus on delivering the best care possible in a safe environment, we want them to know that Humana supports them,” Hunter said. “In many cases, these practices are small businesses, not unlike the tens of thousands of small-business customers who have Humana health coverage. The pandemic has adversely impacted so many small businesses, and these actions we’re announcing today represent the latest steps our company is taking to support the people we serve, and those who serve our members.”
At this time, the additional funding will be available from June through
*excludes ASO, Network Access, and Discount plans
To accomplish that, we support physicians and other health care professionals as they work to deliver the right care in the right place for their patients, our members. Our range of clinical capabilities, resources and tools – such as in-home care, behavioral health, pharmacy services, data analytics and wellness solutions – combine to produce a simplified experience that makes health care easier to navigate and more effective.
