Humana is waiving its prescription refill rule for victims of the Midwest flooding. With damage to homes, businesses, and property estimated to be in the billions of dollars, Humana has temporarily lifted its normal 30-day restriction on early refills for flood victims in parts of Iowa, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The early-refill waiver is in effect until Aug. 31 for the following counties: Appanoose, Boone, Calhoun, Cherokee, Humboldt, Palo Alto, Pocahontas, Wapello, and Webster in Iowa; Allen, Crawford, Hancock, Hardin, Putnam, Richland, Seneca, Van Wert, and Wyandot in Ohio; and Crawford, La Crosse, Richland, Sauk, and Vernon in Wisconsin. Days of heavy rain pushed water levels past flood stages across the Upper Midwest, killing at least 18 people. The governors of Iowa, Ohio, and Wisconsin issued disaster declarations for parts of their states, making them eligible for federal cleanup aid.
