“Why can’t any of this be easier?” A question I asked myself MANY times in my former position as an Area HR Director. Now, I do love a good challenge, but with so many vendors and multiple ways of doing things, along with expectations of how I could help them – it left me wondering, “Am I the one expecting too much?” My wish was for a partner who’d provide benefits and services to my team that help them, help the company and, yes, help me!

We flew to Seattle before our cruise. I got sick before we left home and was given antibiotics. However, I could tell the infection wasn’t under control when we got there. 

 

 

 



 

I called freshbenies Telehealth. A doctor called me back within a few minutes and prescribed an alternative medication, along with a pain reliever, and called them in to a pharmacy nearby. Without that, my entire trip would have been ruined!
