Many citizens and residents in the United States are wondering exactly what comes from a Humana Medicare Advantage plan and the Healthy Options allowance.
The allowance allows for people to pay for their essential living expenses and, as a result, allows them to feel closer to their healthy best. Examples of what can be bought are over-the-counter products, utilities, rent, pet food and the like.
How much is Healthy Options allowance?
Healthy Options allowance varies depending on plan and location, but allowances range from 35 to 275 dollars per month and it is stored on the member’s Humana Spending Account Card, which replaces the Healthy Foods Card.
Who qualifies for the allowance?
There are, of course, some eligibility requirements for the scheme, and the Healthy Options allowance is offered to the following Humana Medicare Advantage plans:
- 100 percent of Dual Eligible Special Needs Plans;
- Select Chronic Condition Special Needs Plans;
