At Humana, we're on a mission to remove barriers to good health, one Veteran at a time, by uniting with communities, Veterans Service Organizations, Veterans Service Officers, providers and clinicians, to combat hunger, homelessness, financial strain, transportation barriers, and loneliness – all risk factors to Veteran suicide. Honoring and serving Veterans is at the core of what we do. Humana is committed to ensuring Veterans and their families no matter their age, race or gender, have access to the care they need and deserve, especially those who stem from underserved and diverse communities.

15 Things Veterans Service Officers (VSOs) Want You To Know

Humana has joined forces with PsychArmor, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Wounded Warrior Project, National Association of Country Veterans Service Officers, American Legion, Paralyzed Veterans of America, and Disabled Veterans of America to co-create and launch 15 Things Veterans Service Officers Want You To Know, an online video course to provide education and awareness about Veteran Service Officer (VSO) programs as a crucial component in improving health and wellness outcomes for veterans. 

“Through this collaborative, we aimed to improve health literacy for the veteran community and those who support them, by educating and encouraging all veterans to seek out a free, accredited Veterans Service Officer to assist in navigating benefits and services that can directly improve their health,” says Stephanie Muckey, leader of Humana's Veteran Health Equity and Social Impact strategy and also a Marine Corps spouse and caregiver. “It has been an incredible journey alongside our partners to bring this project to fruition in support of our veteran community.”
