Where is the 'human' in Humana?

Well, Humana has denied Keith the meds he needs. Don't get me wrong, they want him to have medroxyprogesterone, they just don't want to pay for it. Which adds about $96/month to our healthcare costs. Which makes me wonder how Humana can change a prescription plan without notice? And what do the people do who can't muster up the extra $96+ per month?

Keith's doctor is going to challenge this with the old "the patient needs this medication to breathe" defense. We'll see if that works.
