"With on-demand services playing a big role in people's lives today, it's important that we offer our members access to on-demand care to help reduce some of the primary barriers that prevent people from getting medical care," said Humana's Regional Medicare President Jim Laughlin. "Video and telephonic visits allow our members to receive health care when and where they need it so we can help them achieve their optimal health. For Medicare beneficiaries, getting care when it's needed may be able to help reduce hospitalizations and emergency room visits."People with Medicare may select these plans during the annual Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan enrollment period, which runs Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, 2016. Those selecting a plan with this option will be able to start using the benefit Jan. 1, 2017.
