Humana to offer health insurance in Miss. counties that had been unserved on federal exchange

All Mississippians will have at least one insurance option on the new federal online marketplace when it starts enrolling customers in October.

Humana, based in Louisville, Kentucky, announced Friday that it would cover people in the 36 Mississippi counties where no insurer had agreed to write policies. Coverage under those policies begins Jan. 1.

“This builds on Humana’s current presence,” the company said in a statement. “By working together with local health care providers, we believe we can enhance quality of care and improve health outcomes in the state.”
