[Larry walks through door]


Larry: I like to keep things simple, and I always try to plan ahead. When it rains, I have my umbrella.


[Larry catches umbrella falling from the sky]


Larry: Family bike ride, our helmets are always on.


[Larry buckles helmet and pedals bicycle]


Larry: What if my daughter breaks an ankle playing soccer? Or my wife has an extended hospital stay? Or even if I'm diagnosed with a serious illness?


[Larry catches multiple soccer balls]


Larry: I'm not worried. I have health insurance and that's all I need, right?


[Viv’s voice appears from off screen]


Viv: Actually, to help you out with health expenses or any other bills, you might need some backup like supplemental health insurance.


[Larry is confused, looking for Viv’s voice]


Larry: What's supplemental health ... Wait, do I know you? Did you know me?


Viv: Your employer might even cover your premium. If not, it's still reasonably priced, for the same low monthly cost of just a few of those extra-large thing-a-chinos you drink every morning.

Viv: Supplemental health insurance pays you cash to help with your deductible, hospital charges, living expenses. Or even unexpected costs when you have events that are covered under your plan, like if you or a family member gets into an accident, is diagnosed with a critical illness, or has any type of hospital stay.


[Larry looks through mail from mailbox]


Larry: For all those expenses I pay out of pocket, supplemental puts money back in my pocket.


[Larry puts a check in shirt pocket]


Viv: Exactly. Supplemental insurance pays you in a hurry, so you …


Larry: Can keep up with my bills and still be able to grab another extra-large thing-a-chino because it's my money.


[Larry is holding an iced drink]


Viv: Couldn't have said it better myself.


Larry: And supplemental insurance will give me extra peace of mind. 


Viv: Boom. Mic drop.


[Larry catches mic falling from the air while still holding iced drink]


Larry: Makes my life simple. But seriously, who are you? Where are you? Hello? Hello?


[Larry looks for the source of the voice]


Viv: See how Aetna supplemental insurance can give you peace of mind.


[Aetna logo appears]


Larry: Hello?


[Larry sips iced drink]

Or you can use the cash to cover mortgage payments, groceries, utility bills and day care.

Life happens. You’ve got backup.
