Stocks in this article: GPCM HUM

NEW YORK and LOUISVILLE, Ky., Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Grandparents.com, Inc. (OTCBB: GPCM), a premier social media website and The Trusted Resource for Grandparents™, and Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) announced today the creation of a national alliance to address and enhance the health and well-being needs of Grandparents.com subscribers.

Under the terms of the alliance, Grandparents Health Plans, LLC, a subsidiary of Grandparents.com, will begin marketing Humana Medicare Advantage, Humana Prescription Drug Plans, and Humana Medicare Supplement Insurance plans – as well as Humana individual medical (HumanaOne®) and dental and vision plans – to the website's subscribers in select markets with the goal of expanding beyond these initial markets.

"As we continue to focus on helping people achieve lifelong well-being, our partnership with Grandparents.com will further extend this goal to America's grandparents, boomers and seniors," said Tom Liston, President of Humana's Retail Segment. "We understand the importance of family relationships on grandparents' health and are excited to work with an organization that's creating new ways for families to interact."

"We are pleased to work with Humana and extend the great health benefits they offer to qualifying Grandparents.com subscribers," said Steve Leber, Chairman and Co-CEO of Grandparents.com. "Through this alliance we look forward to sharing exciting offers with our subscribers in order to keep grandparents healthy and well."

Humana Medicare Advantage and Humana Prescription Drug Plans are available in all 50 states to eligible Medicare beneficiaries. Humana Medicare Supplement Insurance plans are available to individuals who have Medicare Parts A and B due to age, and, in select states, due to disability. Plans offered by Humana are dependent on geographic availability.

Grandparents.com recently launched television commercials for Humana Medicare Supplement Insurance plans featuring Grandparents.com Grand Ambassador, Larry King, which are running in select markets.
