Humana loosens its drug refill rules following natural disasters

June 17, 2008

Humana members in areas affected by flooding or fires can get their refills filled earlier than usual.

In view of the storms, tornadoes, and/or flooding that have wreaked havoc in many states over the past few days, Humana said it is allowing early prescription refills for its affected members through June 22. Areas covered include:

  • 55 counties in Iowa
  • 30 counties in Wisconsin

  • six counties in Illinois

  • two counties in Minnesota

In addition, the same holds true for two counties in Northern California, which have been devastated by wildfires. Members with questions can call the toll-free number listed on the back of their Humana ID cards.
