Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, health insurance company Humana Inc. is a Fortune 500 company (#52 in U.S. in 2016) with more than 50,000 employees. The company serves healthcare consumers in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

They are also a Department of Defense TRICARE Managed Care Support Contractor and serve millions of beneficiaries in the Southern US. They have a large stake in Medicare Advantage programs.

Types of Work-at-Home Positions at Humana

Some of its work-at-home positions have geographic requirements. Most are for registered nurses. (see more nursing jobs from home.) Many of its RN positions are for field healthcare and involve visiting patients at home. However, the company also has opportunities, which may allow telecommuting, for medical coders, chart auditors, licensed insurance reps, accountants, physicians, writers, human resource recruiters and benefits consultants, website specialists, and sales people.

An example of a work-at-home RN position is RN Telephonic Utilization Review or FER (Front End Review) Nurse, although there is a long training period in the office before you may be allowed to work from home.

Examples of jobs for employees who are not nurses include Health Care Finder, a position triaging incoming referrals and authorizations for TRICARE beneficiaries, doing data entry, requiring a high school diploma or GED and experience in public contact.

Another is a Provider Contract Administrator, requiring only a high school diploma but a college graduate preferred, ensuring contracts with physicians are setup correctly and managing the credentialing process. A Utilization Management Specialist has similar education requirements and makes outbound calls to members and providers to verify clinical information, document the calls, and create and send out written correspondence.

Another example is a Screening Pharmacist, a licensed pharmacist working from home, reviewing prescriptions for accuracy, checking for drug interactions, allergy concerns, and appropriates dosage.
