My local pharmacy accepted the Humana card with no problem. Shifting a maintenance prescription from an initial order at the local pharmacy to mail order was a bit of an ordeal. Customer service has been excellent. The reports of benefits are in great detail, though I was very disappointed to learn that the amount used to determine when one gets to stage 2, i.e., paying 100%, is the amount the patient pays plus the amount Humana paid for the drug. So while I paid only $38 for my comvent inhaler, Humana paid $114. So the amount used to calculate the $2250 "donut hole" is $152. As a result I am rapidly approaching that threshold even though I take only 4 drugs regularly. Presumably, all plans use the same arithmetic, which was not clear when the plans were first promoted.
