How to Make Your Employees’ Health Plan Smarter, Savvier and More Convenient
In an age where small businesses and big-box shops alike are offering smartphone transactions and a bevy of tech-friendly tools to make life easier, it should be no surprise that healthcare is similarly forging ahead. To help offer your employees simple, accessible and convenient care, UnitedHealthcare now offers virtual visits. No driving. No crowded waiting rooms. And patients can see a doctor when they need a doctor. Pretty simple, right?
Consumers continually reach for tools and apps that help eliminate hassle from their lives. With virtual visits, employees can see and speak to a doctor 24 hours a day, seven days a week, using a mobile device or computer, all from the convenience of their home or office. Meanwhile, virtual visits are integrated into their medical benefits. The virtual visit provider groups contracted by UnitedHealthcare deliver care using live audio and video technology based on quality standards aligned with American Medical Association (AMA) and Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) guidelines.
UnitedHealthcare Virtual Visits allow your employees to take advantage of topnotch telemedicine, receive medical advice, and, if needed, obtain a prescription. Employees can access a list of participating virtual-visit care providers through UnitedHealthcare’s Health4Me™ mobile app. From the “Find and Price Care” page, Health4Me users can review the in-network provider groups and the cost of a virtual visit with each contracted provider group. From there, users can connect directly to the provider group of their choice. UnitedHealthcare’s primary member portal, myuhc.com, also provides information about and access to the virtual-visit care providers.
Simply put, there’s no reason your employees should need to consult dozens of documents or make tons of phone calls when they’re ill. Rather, employers should offer health plans that streamline the process and utilize the latest in technology.
