Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

Today, Humana Inc. (“Humana”) disclosed that its pricing for the 2009 stand-alone Part D drug benefit was above the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) published benchmark premium rate in each of the 34 regions. Accordingly, the Company expects to lose all of its current approximately 308,000 auto-assigned dual eligible members effective January 1, 2009.

As discussed on numerous occasions during the past six months, Humana’s 2009 Part D and Medicare Advantage bidding strategy has been to adjust premiums and benefits to both reflect medical cost trends and achieve an overall Medicare pretax operating margin of approximately five percent. The Company continues to expect that it will achieve both of these objectives with its 2009 Medicare bids.

Humana is awaiting release by CMS of plan-specific premium and benefit information for all participating companies in all regions later this month or early next month. The Company expects to provide its regular detailed guidance on 2009 membership, revenues, and earnings in conjunction with its 3Q08 earnings release and conference call on November 3, 2008.
