Humana Inc.

Qualifying members of Humana’s Medicare Advantage Dual Eligible Special Needs Plans (D-SNP) may have access to a monthly food card allowance which can assist them in purchasing food and beverages at a variety of well-known, national stores that now includes H Mart. These individuals, who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid, also known as dual-eligible individuals, can use the Humana Healthy Foods Card at over 70 H Mart stores across the US. Once activated, the Card’s bar code can be scanned similar to a UPC code on a savings card. Members can purchase qualifying items – such as milk, eggs, bread, juices, waters, yogurts, fruits, vegetables and more – with the available balance on the member’s card, depending on location, of up to $75.
“At Humana, it’s important for us to offer qualifying members of our Medicare Advantage D-SNP plans, low-cost access to healthy food and we’re pleased to connect our members with food that stimulates their spirit and matches their cultural traditions,” said Julie Mascari, Regional President of Medicare for Humana’s Northeast Region. “By adding H Mart to our Healthy Foods Savings card, we’ll be introducing a broader variety of ingredients and nutrition to our members’ diets including some of the brands they prefer.”
Like Humana, H Mart is committed to supporting the communities it serves and that support includes helping people with Medicare achieve their best health. H Mart is always striving for the highest level of service and will continue to work hard to gain customer satisfaction.
“H Mart has always aimed to support the development of the communities, especially our seniors, in our stores. We seek to build business relationships with companies that share our values and dedication,” said Brian Kwon, H Mart’s President. “Humana is a customer service leader because they go beyond health care to provide human care. Their recognition that food can be transformative to both health and happiness makes them a natural partner in the pursuit of healthier communities.”
As of March 15, 2021, Humana members with the Healthy Foods Card benefit on their plan, can use it at over 70 H Mart stores. H Mart’s affiliates and franchise locations will be in the second phase after the initial launch.
