Ratings and Reviews
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.
Great way to deal with small issues.
This is living in the 21st century! I have little kids, which means I’m always busy and get more than my fair share of colds and sinus infections. Instead of an hour round trip to the nearest urgent care, I got a courteous provider who listened to my symptoms and prescribed me a path out of my sinus infection in under five minutes. No waiting in line, no gross waiting room, no hauling my kids around, no problem.
What a Godsend!!!!!
I have a miserable head cold/sinus infection so of course my doctor’s office is closed this week. Instead of having to drag myself to the urgent care center all I had to do was fill out my info and talk to the Doctor over my iPhone camera. It was so fast and easy. SO much easier than going to an appointment. And I don’t have to spread my germs around. My prescription is already ready! I love this app!
