I have Humana prescription coverage for Medicare (part D? I'm a novice)... I'd go elsewhere if you have a choice. Their customer service is dreadful.

Every time I've had a problem (and I've had a half dozen since I signed up a year ago), they haven't been able to resolve it. I've had to change meds to get things covered, change dosages, and switch to a generic that doesn't work effectively.

Very helpful.

Thank you.

I've had United American for several years now with very few issues.  I rec'd a notice yesterday from Humana that Medicare switched my part D provider to them.

I immediately contacted them to verify if my meds will be covered.  What a horrific nightmare and my coverate doesn't even start until 1/1/15.  After an hour and numerous transfers I finally spoke with someone who indicated a couple of my drugs aren't immediately covered.  Truvada for god's sake! 

I already contacted my doctor as I'm quite worried what will happen come January.  I'm not sure of the timeline to request an exception for my meds to be covered but it appears I will run out before the request can be processed.

UGH!!!!!!!   I'm getting too flipping old to deal with change.  Especially when it's not a beneficial change.

I'm not getting this. I thought when one buys into Medicare part D insurance that you would be covered until the next enrollment period. How can Medicare make that switch?

I get confused about it all, but I believe it has something to do with the fact that I get additional assistance with my Part D premium.  I only pay half of it so they negotiate yearly I believe.

I spoke with my doctor's nurse also, and she said not to worry that we'll figure it out and I won't go without my meds.  I simply get overwhelmed for fear of another treatment failure.  I'm pretty much on my last one currently available....stupid resistance!!!
