On March 9, 2010, Humana Inc. (the Company) made the following communication available to the Companys employees:
Exercise your voting privilege as a Humana stockholder
Humana associates who participate in our companys Retirement and Savings (401[k]) Plan and have invested funds in the Humana Common Stock Fund have the right to vote on items being presented at this years annual stockholders meeting, scheduled for April 20, 2010. You may submit one vote for each share held in your Humana Common Stock account as of February 26, 2010.
What documents do you need to vote?
Every year, Humana produces a document - the proxy statement - that details all of the information the companys stockholders need in order to make informed votes. The proxy becomes available to stockholders and the public after Humana files it with the federal Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday, March 10. In order to vote, you must also receive an official voting card.
When will you receive the proxy statement and voting card?
Starting March 9, all stockholders who have (recently or in prior years) successfully submitted electronic requests for a proxy statement and voting card will then receive - via the e-mail address you designated during the online-registration process - a proxy statement and voting card. (Please watch for e-mail from ID@ProxyVote.com.) If you did not sign up for electronic delivery of these materials, youll receive a Notice and Access Card in the mail at home regarding the material.
When can participants in the Humana Retirement and Savings Plan vote?
If you wish to vote, you may do so AFTER you receive your voting card. You then must vote BEFORE midnight on April 17, 2010, through Humanas Retirement and Savings Plan Trustee - Charles Schwab with Broadridge acting as tabulator. If your voting instructions are received by 11:59 p.m. EDT on Friday, April 16, 2010, the Trustee will submit a proxy that reflects your instructions. If you do not give voting instructions (or give them late), the Trustee will vote your interest in the Humana Common Stock Fund in the same proportion as the shares attributed to the Humana Retirement and Savings Plan are actually voted by the other participants in the plan. Humanas stockholders meeting will be held on April 20, 2010.
Whom do you contact for answers to your stockholder-voting-process questions?
If you have any questions, please contact Joan Lenahan via Lotus Notes (Joan O. Lenahan/Louisville/Humana).
