New cash premium payment option expanded to 11 states

Early in November, Humana introduced a cash payment option for monthly premium payments for your prospects considering a Humana individual medical and/or dental plan. This barcode based bill-pay service allows our members to make their monthly premium payments with cash at participating CVS/pharmacy locations.

Three states added to original eight
This selling tool was originally approved for use in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee and Texas. It is now also approved for use in Mississippi, Missouri and Utah.

Important to know

  • This is not available for Humana Medicare, Medicaid or Employer Group members
  • This is available for on-exchange and select off-exchange plans in approved states (currently Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas and Utah.)
  • There is no charge to the member for making cash payments to Humana through this bill-pay service at participating CVS/pharmacy locations

To find a CVS/pharmacy location in an approved state, click CVS/pharmacy locations.

How the bill-pay service works

  • Humana member takes their monthly premium invoice and their cash payment to a participating CVS/pharmacy location
  • CVS/pharmacy associate scans the premium invoice barcode, accepts the cash, and gives the member a receipt showing the amount paid
  • Cash payments can be accepted for any amount between $1 and $999 once per day
  • Member keeps receipt as proof of payment

You may also call the ASU at 800-309-3163, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 9 p.m., Eastern time.

Medicare Service Operations Team (MSOP Support)

MSOP Support is a dedicated service group established to handle escalated issues for agents and can only be contacted by email at MSOPsupport@humana.com.

For enrollment or post-enrollment questions contact Medicare Service Operations (MSOP) Support. This includes but is not limited to questions regarding:

  • Billing and premiums
  • Medical claims

Enrollment Corrections Reminder


An agent statement is needed when there are certain types of enrollment discrepancies.

To facilitate the enrollment correction, an Agent Statement for Enrollment Correction Form describing the discrepancy is needed from the agent in order to transmit the enrollment to CMS or if a retro submission is needed.

Upon request from Humana, or if you notice your own discrepancy, please submit the form attached below to MSOPSupport@humana.com. Please allow 5-7 business days for response.

Humana Health Assessment

A few weeks after a member has been enrolled, a Humana associate will attempt to contact them via phone to welcome them to Humana and to complete a Health Assessment.

The assessment consists of a series of health related questions which help Humana connect the member with programs that are available to them at no additional cost. These programs are designed to assist members in managing health-related conditions.

As their agent, you should assure your members that their responses to these questions will be kept confidential and will not affect their health insurance coverage or benefits in any way.

IMPORTANT: This Health Assessment conducted over the phone is not the same as the In-Home Health and Wellness Assessments program.
