As with the prior reviewer, I have had numerous unsuccessful attempts to obtain customer service from a live person. I have also had several situations in which the system informed me of a wait of at least 40 minutes and in which, after waits in excess of those times, I have simply hung up. On the other hand, I enrolled in late December (12/30/05) and, when I could not confirm the online enrollment, enrolled again the next day by phone. At that time I did get an initial application number and when, about January 7 or 8, I filled a prescription, I was able to do so using that application number. Afterwards, by obtaininng information from my pharmacist, I was able to figure out my actual membership number. Clue: If you need a membershihp number, fill the prescription using your application number and later get the information from the pharmacist. After later receiving my ID card the numbers matched. However, upon accessing the "MyHumana" account I established, it appeared that the amount paid by the plan was in excess of what was initially disclosed on the website. Numerous phone call attempts to clarify the situation were unsuccessful but an email message was finally answered (after several weeks delay) and clarified the issue. Bottom line -- although customer service ranks below zero, the plan seems to be working. Thus while my rating for customer service satisfaction is "0 stars = extremely dissatisfied", I provide a "very satisfied" rating for ease of using the plan, if that refers only to providing my number to a pharmacist and obtaining a prescription, and a "somewhat satisfied" rating for overall satisfaction.
