CHICAGO -- December 12, 2012

Boomers and other eligible beneficiaries for Medicare have a new ally in their
pursuit of good health and well-being. HumanaVitality, LLC, a joint venture
between Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) and Discovery Holdings, Ltd, will begin
offering its wellness and rewards solution to approximately 812,000 Humana
Medicare Advantage, Humana Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Plan and
Humana Medicare Supplement members in select plans in select markets.

Wellness is top-of-mind for boomers and seniors alike. A recent study from the
American Hospital Association reveals that without a stronger prevention
effort, six of every 10 boomers will be managing more than one chronic
condition by 2030. Specifically, diabetes is projected to affect one out of
every four boomers and obesity is expected to affect one out of every three.

HumanaVitality®, which has more than 1.6 million members nationally, provides
people with proven tools, resources and incentives designed to help them make
healthier choices. Starting next month, Medicare beneficiaries in select
markets who are enrolled in eligible Humana Medicare plans will be able to
sign up for HumanaVitality.

“HumanaVitality is bringing the same proven techniques and education to Humana
Medicare beneficiaries that we’ve used for the past 18 months with our 1.6
million HumanaVitality members,” said Joe Woods, CEO of HumanaVitality. “It’s
a sophisticated, yet simple idea: lay out a customized path to better health;
support them every inch of the way; and reward them for the healthier
decisions they make.”

As HumanaVitality members, these Medicare beneficiaries will receive Vitality
Points^TM for activities, such as obtaining preventive screenings, exercising,
donating blood, getting CPR-certified and quitting smoking. When members get
preventive screenings or vaccinations they also earn Vitality Bucks^®, which
are redeemable for items such as gift cards or fitness apparel. Members also
have access to HumanaVitality’s new Vitality Healthy Foods program, offering
participants a five percent savings on healthy food items at Walmart.

“Boomers and seniors are redefining the aging process and defying the
limitations,” said Tom Liston, President of Humana's Retail Segment. “With the
support of a program like HumanaVitality anyone—regardless of age or current
health condition—can take back the reigns of their health and improve their
ability to get and stay healthy. Our goal is to create an experience that
makes this process easy for Humana Medicare members at every stage of life.”

HumanaVitality is a natural extension of the variety of well-being initiatives
Humana currently offers to seniors and other beneficiaries as part of its
dream to helping people achieve lifelong well-being. Select programs include
the Humana Walmart-Preferred Rx Plan – with nearly 1.5 million Medicare
beneficiaries currently enrolled – and our Humana Guidance Centers, a
nationwide network of 24 member-focused facilities in retail locations that
provide individuals on-site help so they can better manage their health plans,
as well as their personal health and well-being.
