LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(Business Wire)--
Humana Inc. (NYSE:HUM) announced today that James H. Bloem, 62, Senior Vice
President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, will retire from the company
on December 31, 2013, and that it has begun searches for successors to both the
Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer roles. These searches will include both
internal and external candidates. 

Bloem, who joined Humana in February 2001, will participate in the search
processes and assist in the transitions of both roles between now and year-end.
The 10-month transition period continues the company`s practice of thoughtful
planning for senior management succession, the most recent example of which was
the 13-month Chief Executive Officer transition from Michael B. McCallister to
Bruce D. Broussard, which became effective January 1. 

"As both Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, Jim has made significant
contributions to Humana`s success over the last 12 years," Broussard said.
"During this period, the company`s revenues and investment portfolio have
increased nearly four-fold. I am pleased that Jim will be an integral part of
the search processes and transitions of both of these key financial roles."
