Humana has expanded the geographic reach of its Medicare plans, and now has at least one Medicare product available in every state in the US, with its largest markets located in the southern and midwestern US. Some three-fourths of Humana's sales come from government program (primarily Medicare) premiums. Most Medicare sales are made through the retail operating segment (about half of revenues), which also includes some commercial individual health plans (including HMOs and PPOs) and the company's specialty benefits unit, which provides dental, vision, life, and third-party administration services to more than 8 million customers. The employer group segment (20% of sales) sells some Medicare policies; however, the division's revenues primarily come from the sale of commercial health plans (including HMOs and PPOs) to corporate accounts on a fully-insured basis or an ASO (administrative services only) basis.
