Submitting A Humania Claim When I Have Another Plan
When you have more than one insurance plan, you need to consider submitting multiple claims to get the most coverage available.
The first place you want to submit claims to is your "Primary Payer." This is the insurance company that pays for your bills first.
After finding out what the primary payer will cover, you will send the bill through the "secondary payer." The secondary payer will cover whatever is leftover.
The claim forms for this process will be similar to if you only had Humania. Your main insurance provider or Humania's customer service hotline will be able to help walk you through the process.
