Well-being at a Glance

Bold Goal: Humana’s population health strategy established in 2015 with an aspirational goal to improve the health of the communities Humana serves 20 percent by 2020 and beyond. Building from the achievement of an initial goal in 2018, Humana’s Associate Bold Goal is to add 500,000 Healthy Days by the end of 2022 and to have 90% of teams with improved well-being.

Healthy Days: Healthy Days are days within the past 30 days when both physical and mental health were good as defined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Unhealthy days are measured by combining the total physically unhealthy days and mentally unhealthy days.
