Humana: CarePlus Health Plans, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Join Forces to Focus on Florida Veterans

Originally Published by Humana.

CarePlus Health Plans, a large Medicare Advantage provider in Florida, is now part of the exclusive agreement between its parent company, Humana Inc., and the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. (VFW), the nation’s largest organization of combat veterans and the oldest major veterans’ organization in the U.S.

In February 2018, Humana announced it had enhanced its agreement with the VFW as the national Medicare Advantage, Prescription Drug and Medicare Supplement plans carrier for the organization.

“CarePlus has always made supporting our nation’s veterans a top priority,” said Bruno Piquin, Regional President of CarePlus Health Plans. “We’re thrilled to expand our commitment, with a special focus on helping the 120,000 VFW members and their spouses in Florida achieve their best health.”

CarePlus has served the Medicare population in Florida for more than 17 years. Headquartered in Miami, the company serves about 115,000 Medicare Advantage members across the state.

“For nearly 119 years, the VFW has made veterans’ care one of its top priorities,” said VFW National Commander Keith Harman. “We’re happy to expand our current relationship with Humana to ensure even more of America’s veterans receive the care and services they need.”

CarePlus will offer numerous services to VFW members to provide education and access to healthcare coverage information.

These will include:

  • Hosting Medicare seminars annually during Medicare’s Fall Annual Election Period (Oct. 15 through Dec. 7).
  • Conducting educational seminars throughout the year to inform VFW members of their Medicare options.
  • Providing VFW members with access to CarePlus Medicare Advantage information and enrollment capabilities which incorporate web-based tools, call centers, educational seminars, and self-enrollment.
