LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Humana Inc.’s (NYSE: HUM) wholly owned subsidiary, Humana Military Healthcare Services’ Warrior Navigation & Assistance Program (WNAP) received the “2010 Outstanding Military Vendor Program of the Year” during this year’s Military Healthcare Convention & Conference held by the Institute for Defense and Government Advancement (IDGA) in San Antonio, Texas. This is the first year IDGA presented awards for military health care in categories such as “Outstanding Military Program”.

“Our company prides itself on providing exceptional, world-class service,” said Dave Baker, president and CEO of Humana Military. “Our Warrior Navigation & Assistance program is a reflection of our dedication and commitment to assist the Nation’s wounded, ill, or injured service members and their families during their recovery.”

WNAP offers one-on-one assistance regarding unique challenges many service members may face relating to access to care, or the need for information on available resources in the Military Health System, Veterans Affairs, or in the community. The program also offers a broad spectrum of clinical programs designed to meet the special needs for service members and their families.

The award was based on the following criteria:

  • Program’s overall contribution, mission, and operational effectiveness to military health care.
  • The conceptual development of the program’s objective.
  • The program’s reach and joint impact on the community.
  • The program’s budget and time allocated to meet performance.

IDGA is an information-based organization dedicated to the promotion of innovative ideas in public service and defense through live conferences and events. The award selection panel consisted of active duty service members and civilians within the Department of Defense. The focus this year was bridging the gap between service member and family care.
