Ratings and Reviews
Love love this app
I did set everything up on my laptop first because there are questions that you have to answer. You also have to download a file and allow the camera and microphone access. Set up took me about 30 minutes only because I forgot my password and had to call in for tech support and have it reset. Once I logged in and the tech support walked me through it, it was very easy. You do have to put a type of payment in before you see the doctor. I also downloaded the app on my iPhone and it took less than 2 minutes to see the doctor. She called in the scripts right away and they were ready for pick up in a half an hour at the pharmacy.
I love this app!!!
Initial setup is uncoordinated and clunky
Considering how technology can make life easier, I found the setup of this app disconnected and error prone.
After providing my UPMC insurance information to this UPMC Anywhere Care app, I was troubled that I had to manually enter every last character of my insured dependent children’s information into this app. This app DID take the time to connect with my insurance to notify me that I had made an error, but didn’t provide the opportunity to simply import my dependent children’s insurance information correctly and in one step.
I have not yet had the need to use the app for its primary purpose, so I cannot comment on it’s performance otherwise.
This app is amazing
This app is an absolute godsend. Less than two hours from the time I first noticed UTI symptoms to having a filled prescription in hand (at 11:30pm)! Nurse practitioner was friendly and knowledgeable, and while she was quick, I also feel like she took adequate time to explain options and medications. I don’t want to think about what shape I’d be in if I’d had to wait for urgent care or my doctor’s office to open the next morning.
