UnitedHealthcare Debuts “Health4Me” Mobile App for iOS Devices, Coming Soon for Android

Health plan provider UnitedHealthcare has debuted a new mobile app for iOS devices called “Health4Me,” which provides 24/7 access to a registered nurse, a physician/hospital locator, and access to personal health benefits information among other features.

In addition, the new app features “Easy Connect” functionality that allows members to request a callback from a UnitedHealthcare service representative with a touch of  a screen.  Launched now for iOS devices, the new app will be out soon for Android as well.

“Health4Me makes navigating healthcare easier for our 26 million plan participants and puts key information, including health and wellness tools, right in the palms of their hands,” says Jeff Alter, CEO of UnitedHealthcare Employer & Individual.  “Today’s technology allows consumers to do more with their mobile devices, and Health4Me enables them to manage their health and interact with UnitedHealthcare in a way that is convenient for them.”

Per its press release, here’s the main features the new app provides:

  • Allows members to download their health plan ID card to their smartphone, and email or fax the ID card directly from the mobile device to the plan participant’s physician office or hospital.
  • Allows members to save their favorite care providers within the UnitedHealthcare network, and record personal notes from each visit to that doctor, under the “Favorites” tab.
  • Allows members to locate nearby physicians, hospitals, emergency rooms and urgent care centers using the smartphone’s GPS functionality, making it easier for consumers to find care providers when they are out of town.
  • Allows members to request a callback from UnitedHealthcare using the “Easy Connect” feature to address any questions about claims and benefits.
  • Allows members to contact a registered nurse 24/7 for information regarding any kind of medical topic.
  • Allows members to view information on a plan participant’s status of deductible and out-of-pocket spending, and check account balances for health reimbursement, flexible spending and health savings accounts.
