Humana requirements

Recommended Posts

I’m starting my Weightloss surgery journey, I’m literally at the beginning I’m talking seminar beginning. I have questions about the requirements for Humana gold plus is the also the plan I have. I’m covered through a Medicare Advantage plan and aside from the program fee and the dieticians visits I’m supposed to have $0 everything? Does anyone else have this plan who has had surgery?

I have the Humana Choice Medicare Advantage Plan. I’m not 100% sure of the difference between the Gold plan and mine, but I know they cover everything Medicare does. I was also required to pay my dietician visits. If your plan requires a PPO and you don’t use one, you will pay more. I had co-pays for Pre-op tests like the cardiologist & psych visit. As far as the surgery itself, all I paid was $295 per night in the hospital. I was in two nights ($590). EVERYTHING was included in that - surgery, surgeon, anesthesiologist, labs, and anything else while I was in the hospital. Humana also covered my first couple of office visits with my surgeon after my surgery. Your Humana book should tell you what they will cover - just look under surgery. Humana also approved my surgery within 2 days of my surgeons submission. I hope,this helps you somewhat. Good Luck on your journey!

I had the surgery a year ago and I was on Medicare Advantage through Humana, PPO Plus, not Gold Plan. It covered everything after my deductible. For the whole surgery, pre-testing, hospital stay, everything, I think I was out $600 total. Good deal!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
