Item 1.01.

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On November 22, 2022, Humana Inc. (the “Company”) completed a public offering of $500 million aggregate principal amount of its 5.750% Senior Notes due 2028 (the “2028 Senior Notes”) and $750 million aggregate principal amount of its 5.875% Senior Notes due 2033 (the “2033 Senior Notes” and, together with the 2028 Senior Notes, the “Senior Notes”). The Senior Notes were issued under an indenture dated as of August 5, 2003, by and between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. (formerly known as The Bank of New York Trust Company, N.A.) (as successor to The Bank of New York), as trustee (the “Trustee”) (the “Original Indenture”), as supplemented by a twenty-second supplemental indenture, dated as of November 22, 2022, by and between the Company and the Trustee relating to the 2028 Senior Notes (the “Twenty-Second Supplemental Indenture” and, together with the Original Indenture, the “Twenty-Second Indenture”) and a twenty-third supplemental indenture, dated as of November 22, 2022, by and between the Company and the Trustee relating to the 2033 Senior Notes (the “Twenty-Third Supplemental Indenture” and, together with the Original Indenture, the “Twenty-Third Indenture,” and the Twenty-Second Indenture and Twenty-Third Indenture are referred to herein as the “Indentures”).

The sale of the Senior Notes has been registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) in a registration statement on Form S-3, File No. 333-254041 (the “Registration Statement”).

Pursuant to the terms of each of the Indentures, the Senior Notes are unsecured senior obligations of the Company and rank equally with all of the Company’s other unsecured, unsubordinated indebtedness. The 2028 Senior Notes bear interest at an annual rate of 5.750% and the 2033 Senior Notes bear interest at an annual rate of 5.875%. Interest on the Senior Notes is payable by the Company on March 1 and September 1 of each year, beginning on March 1, 2023. The 2028 Senior Notes mature on March 1, 2028 and the 2033 Senior Notes mature on March 1, 2033.

A copy of the Original Indenture is filed as Exhibit 4.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.
