Partnership offers discounted dental, vision and pharmacy plans, among other benefits
LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) has teamed with the iCan Benefit Group to offer a new line of discounted products for individual consumers. Effective immediately, people can access a variety of discounted packages that include dental, vision and pharmacy products. The agreement establishes the iCan Benefit Group as the primary marketer of these products and will connect Humana with iCan’s national distribution network. iCan will offer the new products through online and TV campaigns, as well as through distribution to large organizations.
Studies show that focusing on dental and vision care through regular dental cleanings and periodic eye exams can help detect other health problems and risks, such as heart disease, diabetes and stroke. This new initiative also provides access to favorable prescription discount pricing through the Humana Prescription Drug Savings Program now available to the public at no cost. Furthermore, combined with prescription-advocacy services, these products will deliver affordable medications to people who have no health care benefits and groups whose benefits do not include prescription, dental and vision coverage.
“We know that many people either don’t have access to prescription discounts or they take medications that aren’t covered by their health plan. This product offered by Humana and iCan can provide value to these people,” said William Fleming, vice president of Humana Pharmacy Solutions.
This unique relationship will provide iCan customers with access to Humana’s full suite of insured products as well as discount plans. The competitively priced benefits can be included in various product bundles. A variety of packages is now available, some of which include additional insured health benefits. Also, purchasers of these products can leverage savings programs for entertainment, travel, legal and financial services, as well as personal and family benefits, such as counseling.
“As the focus of the industry evolves, Humana and iCan recognize in each other the commitment to providing not only quality coverage but quality service, with the goal of improving overall population health,” said Steve Tucker, chief executive officer of the iCan Benefit Group. “These new offerings of dental, vision and pharmacy benefits enable us to better provide the families we serve with affordable health solutions.”
“Oral and ocular health are important to an individual’s overall health and well-being and these plans will give people access to affordable dental and vision care,” said Beth Bierbower, Humana’s specialty benefits chief operating officer.
