Common Questions

Provider Navigators, many of whom are based in South Carolina, can resolve inquiries across all your daily needs for seamless health plan support. You won't be transferred multiple times or asked to repeat information. Types of inquiries include member eligibility verifications, requests for prior authorization, claims status checks, and more.

Patients with Author by Humana have access to a team of non-clinical Care Coordinators who offer concierge-style service. Care Coordinators can help your patients get a ride, connect with community events and services, and navigate day-to-day health plan questions.
