Humana to Roll Out National Initiative in Support of U.S. Military Veterans.

Health & Beauty Close-Up August 10, 2011 Based on its experience working with military veterans and recent research of veterans’ financial and medical needs, Humana announced a new, national Veterans Initiative.

As part of the initiative, Humana noted it:

-Has set a goal to hire 1,000 qualified veterans and/or their spouses in a variety of roles across the company -Will contribute $1 million over the next two years to a veteran-focused entrepreneurship program -Will introduce a new suite of health-plan and financial-protection products – many of which have been created specifically for veterans and their families “Through our ongoing work at Humana Military and at Humana Veterans Healthcare Services, Humana enjoys a longstanding relationship with active-duty and retired U.S. military men and women,” McCallister said. “We’ve also been fortunate to hire many veterans whose professionalism and skill place them among the most outstanding associates working for Humana today. So the creation of this Veterans Initiative is a natural next step for Humana.” The new Humana Veterans Initiative will result in additional efforts to recruit 1,000 qualified military veterans and/or their spouses to become Humana associates, working in roles across the company. site concentra urgent care

Humana said it will also contribute $1 million to the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV), a national program that offers training in entrepreneurship and small-business management at no cost to post-9/11 veterans. The program was founded in 2007 at the Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University (SU). The EBV is now offered through a network of seven business schools at SU, the University of Connecticut, Florida State University, Louisiana State University, Purdue University, Texas A&M University and UCLA. go to site concentra urgent care

“We’re excited and honored to have Humana support the EBV program as part of its new Veterans Initiative,” said Mike Haynie, founder and national executive director of EBV programs. “Every day, we’re making great strides with the national EBV program, opening doors to business ownership for our nation’s veterans. With its generous financial contribution and hands-on support, Humana will enable us to provide these resources to even more veterans.” “Our experience is that veterans are well-trained, highly motivated individuals who make an immediate impact when they come to work at Humana,” said Fred Wheeler, leader of Humana’s new Veterans Initiative. “We’re excited to expand our employment of veterans in the coming months. Given the company’s focus on helping people achieve lifelong well-being, veterans will be great ambassadors for Humana.” Later in 2011, Humana will announce details of the products and services it will offer veterans as part of the company’s new Veterans Initiative. Also, Humana-owned Concentra urgent care facilities will offer veterans savings on services at more than 300 Concentra facilities around the U.S. that are open to the public.

“We can’t wait to make significant progress with this Veterans Initiative,” Wheeler said. “We demonstrate our company’s commitment to the military, veterans and their families every day. This is a great new way to expand that commitment and deepen our relationship with these men and women who have served our country so honorably.” Humana is a health care company.
