Tired of wasting your time in an endless cycle of computerized phone messages?

Don't you have better things to do with you time than talking to a computer?

Ready to outsmart those automated phone systems?

Stop the madness!

Save time!

Dial a human!

Just this morning I wasted 10 minutes trying to talk to a human at our health insurance company. My automated conversation went something like this,

If you're a patient, press 1

If you're a provider, press 2

If you a calling about an existing claim, press 1

If you are calling about benefits, press 2

Enter i.d. followed by the #.

Enter patient date of birth.




When I finally spoke to a human, I was asked for all the same information that I had just keyed in!

Sound familiar?
