OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Oct. 16, 2006 (www.AllPayNews.com) -- Humana Inc. (NYSE:HUM) has selected First Horizon Msaver (www.FirstHorizonMsaver.com) to administer Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) for its HumanaOne Individual Health Insurance customers. Humana offers HSA-qualified individual health plans in 24 states.
Under the agreement, a person who purchases a HumanaOne HSA-qualified health plan and chooses First Horizon Msaver to administer the HSA will be able to complete an application to open an HSA account and initially fund the account electronically in one online session. Once the account is opened, First Horizon Msaver will provide customer service through a privately labeled customer care center.
"We wanted to expand the number of HSA financial partners to give our customers more choice," said Humana's assistant treasurer, Walter Stark. "First Horizon Msaver had the combination of technology and customer service capabilities we were looking for to create a positive member experience."
E. Craig Keohan, president of First Horizon Msaver, said, "Our new partnership with HumanaOne furthers the continued growth of consumer-driven health care plans. The ability to offer an electronic platform to open, fund and integrate with one of the nation's leading insurance carriers demonstrates our ability to deliver a superior customer experience."
The joint program is set to roll out with HumanaOne HSA-qualified health plans issued beginning in fourth quarter 2006.
