Humana cut the contract with my company for Humana at home home care visits- lots of workers lost their jobs. They said that due to the virus, they could manage the “home visits” at their home office and didn’t need them anymore.

Our companys' contract was not renewed due to our small size. I have worked my last day for Humana. It is a relief to quit wondering when/if it would happen. When I first started this position it was great. Now pay is cut in half and it takes twice as long with all the additional alerts, surveys, etc. Good luck to everyone. As for me, I thank God almighty I am free at last!
COVID 19 hospitalizations are increasing rapidly in areas across the country so I don’t see Humana sending people into the home anytime soon.
You if you are telephonically managing members they may move in that direction and lay-off the Humana CM telephonic work force so they do not have to pay benefits.
I’m an independent contractor with HAH doing CM visits in members homes. The visits have been ‘temporarily suspended’ due to covid 19 and then effective May 1, contract pay was reduced by 50%! I still have to make ‘telephonic’ visits, which is more tedious, doing the same care management work, teaching, pharmacy orders, comprehensive surveys, post discharge surveys, medication reconciliations, etc!! It takes multiple calls to complete one ‘visit’.. there’s no end-date for this temporary suspension of in home visits, and I fear HAH will think this is “working” and keep this in place... meanwhile my 30 members are struggling and literally tanking! More ER visits, hospital stays, Med errors, General health issues and none covid related....
That stinks. What department are you in?
I received a phone call yesterday that my last work day is tomorrow.
Likely will be looking to cross train employees and thin out again. The cross train is already happening. More work less employees. This pandemic has shown what they can do and not do; no question office will not be needed as before. More virtual meetings. Changes will be coming fast.
humana will probably be eliminating small and or underperforming companies. Maybe those members are discharged, maybe they go to humana nurses or maybe they go to the big network companies. Who knows. But it will happen. It would be nice to see what the criteria is tho
Not trying to be callous, but as a contracted worker did you really think you had longevity on your side especially in our current environment? If you were a high performer in your role, and I can assure you your productivity was watched very closely, you may want to consider applying for one of the many telephonic roles currently posted. I understand that tele may not be your first choice as you’re an in home worker but the opportunity is there.
We were told in town hall last week that some contract employees were going to be let go. Said that companies that were under performing as a whole would be closed. However, I think this is just the beginning to dismantling the entire program.
Oh no so sorry! I wonder when they’re going to circle around to the RN telephonic management teams
