Don’t delete existing password after update

Needing to contact Teladoc, I was forced to update the app before usage. When update completed, the update no-longer took my existing password. When I attempted to login with some passwords I remembered and unsuccessful, my account was locked and your “forgot password” feature is not working.

I was trying to do this on a Saturday of a long weekend. Now, your company customer service is closed til Tuesday and I’m stuck with a massive back pain thanks to that update!

Awful, despicable company that should be forcibly removed from the marketplace.

I have been trying to add my wife to my plan for 2 solid months. Filed all our information on time. We’re both in our thirties in good health, it should have been a simple process. Instead, I’ve been on hold for probably a total of at least 10 hours, had my calls dropped countless times, and the customer service is the most ruthlessly ineffective bunch of liars I have ever had the utter misfortune of speaking to. Consequently my wife has been uninsured for 2 months. During a pandemic. When I’ve done everything correctly and on time.

I have had Blue Shield for 2 years and have hardly used it because again, I’m in good health. This is how this company works. They have no problem getting you on a monthly payment, but good luck if you ever need to make changes or speak to customer service in any meaningful way. I have spoken to health care professionals that dread when you pull out a Blue Shield card because they know they’ll be spending an hour on the phone just to confirm your enrollment.

But hey, the app is fine. They earn that one star.

App is buggy and contains dangerously outdated information

My young son got what appeared to be spider bites on his ankle. I immediately downloaded this app and logged into my account that I had previously set up using a browser on my PC. This happened at 8:00 pm earlier this evening.

I was pleased to find two urgent care facilities near me, even though neither was open 24 hours. One of them was listed as closing at 9:00 pm, so I sent the contact information to my wife so she could bring our son there. On the way, she called the facility, got an answering service, and found out that they do NOT, in fact, accept Blue Shield of California insurance, despite appearing as only 1 of 2 in-network facilities nearby. They also stated that they closed at 6:00 pm, not 9:00 pm as indicated in this app.

I then tried using this app to report updated information for this “in-network” urgent care facility (that doesn’t take this insurance and closes several hours earlier than this app states), but the screen that popped up where I would report the changes wouldn’t let me scroll to the bottom field, and brought up a keyboard that covered my text so that I couldn’t see what I was typing, and then couldn’t make corrections to what I typed, and THEN got an error every time I tried to submit the changes that I had typed.

This app is absolute garbage.
