On August 9, 2021, we announced through the Monday Minute that Humana will be conducting eligibility verifications of spouse, common law spouse, or domestic partners in its commercial population. Groups were sent notices about this eligibility verification on July 22, 2021. Groups were asked to validate dependent information with 45 days following an inquiry from Humana.
There has recently been an update from Humana.
The dependent eligibility verification has been paused to thoroughly evaluate the program and make improvements before moving forward with the verification. Humana notified employers via email on August 17, 2021 that their impacted employees do not need to take action until further notice. We’ll be sure to share related communications with you, as they are developed.
Please reach out to your Cornerstone representative with any questions.
