4.Does Humana pay a dividend?
 Yes, in April 2011, the company's Board of Directors initiated a quarterly cash dividend policy. Declaration and payment of future quarterly dividends is at the discretion of the Board and may be adjusted as business needs or market conditions change.

Humana also had a prior dividend program, and dividend reinvestment program, in place from 1/15/1976 through 11/12/1992. Upon the end of that dividend program, any accumulated shares purchased from reinvestments were issued to the shareholders. Humana has not offered a dividend reinvestment program since 1992.

5.Do I have dividend rights if I have unvested Restricted Stock Awards?
 The simple answer is yes, but… First, you need to understand the difference between Restricted Stock Awards and Restricted Stock Units. As Restricted Stock Awards are shares that are issued and outstanding, it entitles the holder to the rights of any stockholder, subject to the terms of your agreement with Humana. (Restricted Stock Units are NOT outstanding, but a right to receive stock at a future date. Therefore, the Restricted Stock Units will not receive the dividends.) Per your Restricted Stock Award Agreement, you are entitled to receive the dividend when and if your Restricted Stock Award vests. When Humana declares a dividend on its common stock, your dividend amount will accrue with respect to your unvested Restricted Stock Awards, and will be paid only upon vesting of the related award. Humana’s First 2011 Stock Dividend: Record Date: June 30, 2011 Dividend Payment Date: July 28, 2011 Declared Dividend: $0.25 The dividends on unvested restricted stock awards will not be paid if your restricted stock award is cancelled for any reason prior to vesting.

6.How will the accumulated dividends be paid?
 At the time of vesting, Humana’s payroll department will enter your total accumulated dividend payable amount into the payroll system. The dividend income is considered ordinary income and will be included on your W-2 in the year of vesting. Additionally, taxes will be calculated and deducted from the total amount of dividend payment income. The dividend payment less taxes will be included in your paycheck as soon as administratively possible after your restricted stock awards vest. The income will be distinguishable on your pay slip as dividend income.

7.How do I receive dividends on Humana stock after my Restricted Stock Awards vest?
 After your restricted stock awards vest, you may receive future dividends (1) if you are a stockholder and (2) if Humana declares future dividends. If you retain Humana shares after your restricted stock vests, any future dividend payments will be either paid to you directly if you hold the shares in certificated form or deposited in your brokerage account and reported on Form 1099. Humana’s transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, or the brokerage firm holding your Humana shares will issue the 1099. Please note that taxes generally are not withheld from 1099 income. Please contact EquityCompliance@Humana.com in Humana's Law Department with any questions.

9.When did Humana spin-off its hospitals? What was the tax basis allocation?
 On March 1, 1993, Humana Inc. separated its hospital and health benefit plan businesses into two independent publicly held companies. The spin-off was effected through the distribution to Humana stockholders of record as of the close of business on March 1, 1993, of all of the outstanding shares of common stock of a new hospital company, Galen Health Care, Inc. Each shareholder received one share of Galen stock for each share of Humana stock owned. Humana shares were not surrendered. Galen was subsequently merged, through an unrelated transaction, with a subsidiary of Columbia Healthcare Corporation. To determine the adjusted per-share tax basis in your Humana shares held immediately before the Distribution, multiply your per-share tax basis in those shares by 37.304%.To determine the per-share tax basis in your Galen shares received in the Distribution, multiply the per-share tax basis in your Humana shares held immediately before the Distribution by 62.696%.
