Humana

Our Take

Humana offers a wide variety of plans, generally at an affordable cost for a given level of plan benefits. Humana plans are generally highly rated in terms of quality and customer satisfaction. Because of the merger in process with Aetna, Humana’s offerings on the open marketplace may be in flux.

Overall Score

We evaluated this health insurance company using publicly available data on patient care & satisfaction, customer service and costs (premiums) versus similar plans on the market.

Quality & Satisfaction
Based on ratings by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. Plan reviews take into account consumer surveys and performance measurements used by more than 90% of America's health plans. Because so many plans collect this data, it is possible to compare plans on an "apples to apples" basis.
Affordability
To calculate the affordability rating we compared the cost of an insurer's silver plan to the average cost of a silver plan in each state. Higher star ratings were awarded to insurers that had plans that were cheaper than the average plan cost in a higher number of states.
