Bulls and Humana Team Up for Seniors

Senior Citizens in the Triangle have always enjoyed a fun day at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, but on Wednesday, May 11, 2005, they’ll get a deal like never before.

The Durham Bulls have teamed up with Humana to create Senior Day for the team’s 1pm game against the Buffalo Bisons, the Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians. Not only will senior citizens receive $1.00 off their Diamond View ticket price, but the first 500 seniors will get a free hot dog and soda courtesy of Humana.

“Afternoon baseball and free lunch at the ballpark, that’s a deal we expect a lot of senior citizens will take advantage of,” Durham Bulls General Manager Mike Birling said, “We appreciate Humana’s partnership on this event and look forward to more in the future.”

Along with Senior Day, Humana has scheduled a second event on Sunday, May 22nd at the DBAP playing off the popular “Kids Run the Bases” promotion. Following the 5:00 PM game, grandparents are invited to join the kids as they take the field to run the bases.

Humana offers Medicare Advantage HMO, PPO, and Private Fee-for-Service (PFFS) plans in 19 states.  More than 427,000 Medicare beneficiaries are currently enrolled in a Humana Medicare Advantage plan.  This type of health plan is an alternative to original Medicare and is a direct result of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 and the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003. Humana Medicare Advantage plans include a prescription drug benefit, limits on out-of-pocket expenses, and worldwide coverage for emergency care and urgently needed care.
