A large health insurer is trying to reach out to consumers by backing a pair of health consumerism media personalities.
Humana Inc., Louisville, Ky., says it will be sponsoring “You: The Owners Manual,” a weekly health radio broadcast by Dr. Michael Roizen.
The deal also includes a marketing relationship with Dr. Mehmet Oz, Humana says.
Roizen and Oz are the authors of “You: The Owners Manual” and “You: The Smart Patient,” 2 health care books for patients.
Humana is hoping radio promotions involving Roizen and Oz will drive consumers to the Humana Web site, Humana says.
