LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- March 31, 2014

Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), one of the nation’s leading health and well-being
companies, announced today that it has appointed Brian A. Kane as Senior Vice
President and Chief Financial Officer effective June 2014. Kane will report to
President and Chief Executive Officer Bruce Broussard and serve on the
company’s Management Team, which sets strategic direction for the company.

Kane, age 41, brings extensive financial and strategic perspective to the CFO
role, driven primarily by his significant investment banking experience at
Goldman, Sachs & Co. working across several industries, including health
insurance, financial institutions, real estate and consumer retail. He has
also served as the lead financial advisor on many of the managed care
industry’s most important strategic transactions.

“I am excited to have Brian joining our leadership team,” Broussard said. “He
brings financial and strategic breadth that will nicely complement the
operational depth of Steve McCulley.”

McCulley is currently serving as Interim Chief Financial Officer and will
continue in his role as Chief Accounting Officer when Kane joins the company.
He will also continue to serve on the company’s Management Team.

“I’d also like to thank Steve for his exceptional contributions throughout
this interim period,” Broussard continued. “He has displayed the steady
leadership, business acumen and deep commitment to Humana that we all
recognize and value.”

“I look forward to working with Bruce, Steve and the entire Humana team,” Kane
said. “Humana is an innovative company on strong financial footing with a keen
sense of the multi-faceted benefits its focus on health has for all of its
stakeholders. I was further impressed by the company’s long-term growth
prospects and the caliber of the leadership team.”

Kane has spent nearly 17 years at Goldman, Sachs & Co. As a managing director,
he was responsible for client relationships as well as for leading strategic
and financing transactions for a number of companies in multiple industries.
His health insurance work has included coverage of the national and
government-focused managed care organizations, and he also has spent
significant time in the property casualty and life insurance sectors. In
addition to his extensive insurance experience, Kane also gained critical
insight into the consumer retail world through his coverage of restaurant,
consumer product and retail companies.

Kane holds an MBA from Harvard University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in
Economics and Political Science from Stanford University.
