Humana tries to streamline health care processes wherever possible. Instead of expensive visits to urgent care or the emergency room for a cold or sinus infection, members can call a telemedicine provider.
Patients can choose to release information to their PCP regarding their telemedicine appointments. Afterward, physicians receive information regarding the visit via secure fax or email.
Humana already has this service available in some areas, as stated above. If a Humana-covered patient uses a telemedicine provider and chooses to release information to his/her PCP regarding the telemedicine appointment, his/her PCP will receive notes from the visit.
