Humana (NYSE: HUM) and The Senior Citizens Bureau (SCB) are collaborating to offer Humana Medicare Advantage plans to more than 500,000 SCB members. The Senior Citizens Bureau is one of the nation’s largest non-profit organizations for seniors, and Humana is one of the nation’s largest publicly traded health and supplemental benefits companies with nearly 10.3 million medical members and 6.8 million specialty members.
SCB Medicare Solutions, the name of the new collaborative program, will strive to provide SCB members with high quality, a broad selection and the best value in Medicare health insurance options and service available.
“We’re excited and honored to have Humana Medicare’s sponsorship and support,” said Valerie Stephenson, executive director of the Senior Citizens Bureau. “With ‘SCB Medicare Solutions,’ we’ve simplified insurance options for seniors and made the process easy. In this day and age, this is something they truly appreciate and value, so it’s an important service for us to offer.”
SCB members will have access to a nationwide network of Humana insurance agents who know and understand Humana’s Medicare products and how Medicare works for seniors.
“The Senior Citizens Bureau shares Humana’s commitment to protecting the futures of seniors by offering them products that meet their health care needs,” said Craig Uchytil, vice president of strategic alliances with Humana. “SCB and Humana share some of the same core values, including maintaining integrity in all endeavors; providing customers with products and services of measurable value, and helping Americans live long, healthy and purposeful lives.”
