A managed care company with a large U.S. Defense Department health plan administration contract has agreed to help the husbands and wives of soldiers find work.

The military health care services unit of Humana Inc., Louisville, Ky., has demonstrated its commitment to supporting military spouses by joining the Army Spouse Employment Partnership.

Humana hopes its 70 offices will be able to draw on a diverse pool of qualified military spouse job candidates, the company says.
