Humana is one of the largest health care providers in the country, and the coverage for treatment is dependent on the type of plan you have. There are many different plans available, such as preferred provider organizations and health maintenance organizations. A PPO plan through Humana allows individuals to seek care within the network and out of network, without a referral. HMO plans through Humana require the member to have a designated primary care physician, and you can only see in-network providers. Humana insurance plans also cover military service members and families with Humana Military, but also partner with TRICARE. Humana also provides Medicare and Medicaid plans, which include the state of North Carolina.

There are some effective treatment options available through a Humana plan. Treatment can focus on intensive and early intervention and personalized care that focuses on the whole person. Some of the treatment options include medication-assisted treatment, counseling, peer support, 12-step, and inpatient treatment. When searching for treatment, it is essential to speak with your Humana insurance provider and find out what is covered with your plan.
