Group employees can talk to a telemedicine doctor for $40 or less
Based on the medical plan, the copayment or retail clinic benefit cost for your employees may be less. A trip to the emergency room or urgent care can be costly – especially for minor injuries or illnesses.
But with telemedicine, your employees can quickly connect by video and see a board-certified doctor using a smartphone, tablet or computer. Whether it’s an after-hours consultation or during travels, Humana’s telemedicine benefit is access to care that is easy, convenient and more affordable for your employees to get the right type of care to stay healthy.
What is telemedicine?
Humana’s two pillars of telemedicine are eVisits and Remote Monitoring with a primary focus on expanding access and delivering integrated care to our members where and when they need it.
eVisits allow real-time secure video to enable doctor visits for certain, non-emergency care; think of an eVisit like secure Skype™ or Facetime™ session.
Telemedicine is a video on-demand, 24-hour service to access care from board-certified physicians
- Video visit with a physician from one of Doctor On Demand’s U.S. board-certified doctors
- Immediately video visit with a doctor 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from any location
- Members can share notes from their telemedicine visit with their primary care doctor
- If medically necessary, a Doctor On Demand can send a prescription to a preferred pharmacy
What can be treated by telemedicine?
Telemedicine should be considered when a primary care doctor is unavailable, after-hours or on holidays for non-emergency needs. Doctor On Demand physicians can treat ailments, such as:
- Colds, sore throat and flu symptoms
- Upper respiratory infections
- Allergies and sinus infections
- Ear and eye problems
- Skin conditions
This service is not for emergency situations such as chest pain, abdominal pain or shortness of breath.
