INT. LIVING ROOM - DAY
JENNIFER is standing in her living room, clearly busy, but handling it all in stride.
As a working mom, time is precious. Telemedicine services covered by Humana saves me time and makes getting care easy.
My little boy Aidan woke up crying in the middle of the night with a severe sinus infection, of course, the doctor's office was closed - what do you do? Luckily with the telemedicine services covered by Humana, right from my phone we were able to connect with a doctor for a video visit and get help right away.
He prescribed medicine that could help, and we picked it up around the corner that night. It was so easy from start to finish.
Now, when we can't go to the doctor but don't need the E.R. - we use it first. It saves us so much time and money! I tell all my friends and family about the great telemedicine benefits made available to me as a Humana member!
(chuckles) I'm the biggest fan!
