Long wait, great results
This was my first time using Blue Care. My son has been sick for the last 3 weeks with the Flu, Croup Virus, and now Strep Throat. I started a low-grade fever today with some fatigue. I am full time student and single mom, so I do not want to get sick. I was hoping to get something to prevent further illness. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do. I got bounced around from doctors on Blue Care who said I needed to see a pediatrician; I’m sure they just read about my son and not me, I’m 22. So after entering my information several times, I was finally connected to someone.
Overall, the app and the doctors seem to be well within guidelines and it is much more convenient to use Blue Care than to physically go see a doctor. It was just irritating having to wait on several doctors to be seen. However, I would 100% recommended Blue Care. Dr on Demand is a great resource as well, but they don’t take my insurance.
Since this is fairly new, at least to me it is, I assumed there would be glitches, take a long time, and more of a headache than just going to the Dr. My son just had his first online visit and it went surprisingly awesome! The Dr. was great, there were no glitches, and it took no time at all. It took 35-40 mins from start to finish. This includes the time it took me to download the app, enter all of my information and my two son’s information, start the online check-in, talk to the Dr. and receive the school excuse and prescription. I don’t foresee myself sitting in a waiting any time soon.
It was super easy, once I turned my phone off and back on. The video portal would not load at first. So my hubby suggested I turn off my phone and turn it back on, and that worked, the video portal loaded..... and the doctor I picked, arrived like a Jeannie, popping out of the bottle to grant my three wishes. Dam I love that App!
I’m so thankful I could avoid the waiting room at urgent care and I’m also so very thankful that I don’t have to panic about getting a doctor’s appt Monday morning. It is nice to start the healing process before the work week.
