MOBILETM for Humana’s Medicare Advantage members seeking
digital solutions for emergency, critical and advance care planning.

An emergency, critical and advance care plan is a comprehensive document
that can include elements of a living will, healthcare power of attorney
and a person’s wishes on specific medical treatments and preferences. A
thorough plan, when accessible, can help individuals share important
information about their healthcare preferences with their medical teams
and loved ones.

“The MyDirectives® system allows people to create, update, personalize
and share their care plan with anyone at any time,” said Jeff Zucker,
ADVault CEO. “It includes all the elements of an advance directive and
also allows consumers to enhance their plan by including video and audio
messages and by attaching other documents such as physician orders for
life sustaining treatments. We are honored that Humana is extending its
use of our platform, continuing its commitment to getting the
individual’s voice heard during a healthcare crisis.”

Beginning today, Humana Medicare Advantage members have access to
MyDirectives through Humana Points of Care, a secure web portal that
provides valuable resources and education to members and their care

“We’re pleased to add this fully digital tool to the advanced care plan
offerings we already have in place for our Medicare members,” said
Humana At Home President Eric C. Rackow, M.D. “Everyone benefits when
they have a good quality advance care plan that can be shared and found
when necessary, and this is yet another way Humana can help support our
members and their caregivers.”

Humana also has a number of advanced care planning tools available to
members without internet access, including its LifeKeeper
