UnitedHealthcare has come out with a new and innovative mobile application for their customers called Health4Me. This mobile app is currently available through the iPhone, iPad and will soon be coming to the Android. It will give customers instant access to their critical health information and allow for easier access to their own personal records.
The app is free and will be accessible for millions of UnitedHealthcare employer plan employees. It will give them round the clock access to a registered nurse, a physician locator, medical facility locators as well as access to personal health benefit information. An easy and unique feature called “Easy Connect” will allow consumers to select questions they may have and request a call back on their mobile device from a knowledgeable UnitedHealthcare representative.
Jeff Alter, CEO for UnitedHealthcare Employer & Individual, says Health4Me is making benefit navigation easier for their 26 million plan participants and offers quick access to important tools including health and wellness information. He points out how today’s insurance technology allows consumers to do so much more through their mobile phones and computers. Managing health care benefits and services through a mobile device is becoming more and more popular and all health insurance companies should be keeping up with the ever changing technology.
