Karen Moran Named President of Humana Military

Moran succeeds longtime Humana leader Brent Densford who is retiring after 32 years with the company

Humana Military, a wholly owned subsidiary of Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), announced today that it has appointed healthcare industry veteran Karen Moran to Senior Vice President, President of Humana Military, effective January 1, 2023. She is the first woman to hold this role in its 26-year history and succeeds Brent Densford who is retiring from Humana after more than 32 years.

“Humana Military is poised for continued success with the appointment of Karen Moran, who has a proven track record in executing large, complex healthcare plans and developing associates to their full potential,” said Sue Schick, Segment President, Group and Military Business. “With the recent announcement of Humana Military being awarded the next contract to administer the TRICARE East Region health benefit, Karen’s leadership comes at a pivotal time, and we look forward to a bright future.”

Moran comes to Humana Military from EmblemHealth, where she served as Senior Vice President, Commercial Business and President, ConnectiCare. Over her more than 20-year career in healthcare, she has held executive leadership roles in organizations that administer healthcare plans for individuals, employers, Medicare and federal employees.

“I am thrilled and honored to start this exciting new chapter in my career and serve the Humana Military communities,” said Moran. “Throughout my time in healthcare, I have committed myself to two priorities: ensuring my teams feel empowered to deliver best-in-class service to customers; and the flawless administration of large-scale contracts – because everyone is entitled to access to quality healthcare.”

Prior to joining EmblemHealth, Moran was the Executive Director of Aetna’s Federal Plans business, which provided medical, pharmacy, dental and vision solutions for the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) and the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP). These programs served civilian federal employees, retirees and their families and were administered by the United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM).

Moran has served on several industry and community-based boards and steering committees in Connecticut and previously served on the Board of Directors for the Special Olympics of New York.
