General improvements and bug fixes
Ratings and Reviews
The app is good. I appreciate the security features. I would like to see more features from the home page (provider finder, BVA info, fitness discount information, etc.) or at least limit the click to get to these features to “2 clicks.” I understand this can be difficult as there are so many features available but if we target the top 5-10 links that are selected to make immediately available, that would be great.
I also wish that if services are available regarding my overall wellbeing that may not necessarily be available through my plan such as (national support groups for conditions, example: diabetes, stroke, etc.) the links or contact to these associations are made available.
BCBS major failure
DO NOT USE THIS APP. It’s a major development failure. Nothing ever works. Don’t take my word for it. Look at the review history on how often this app failed. It constantly leaves you to calling directly to get answers and the lines are always clogged. If I was BCBS I would be suing the developer for breach of contract as it’s a P.O.S. I have never been able to log in. BCBS, do not advertise a platform and route people to use it when it’s a catastrophic failure. This app and its ability is a representation of the management group for BCBS and their lack of respect for the people that are trying to navigate the gross injustice of the american health care system. If the only platform that works is a desktop version, say so. Stop asking hopeful Americans to use something when it’s not proven to be effective and working. We’re tired of developers dropping initial garbage onto consumers with the expectation of fix as you go instead of proper testing and correction prior to release. Would you buy a refrigerator that has the potential of not chilling your food and requires service several times before it is finally running correctly? Are we supposed to “expect” to absorb the cost of rotten foods so you can get to market? Is that a fair expectation? Pull the app. Get it right first, then release to public for use. The current approach your using makes BCBS look like extremely incompetent fools. I know their not, but apparently their IT department is not thinking.
Had a hard time trying to decide whether or not I was gonna give a 2 or 3 and the only reason it got a 3 is because there’s not a half star and the fact that My insurance info is pretty accessible through the app is why it got such a high score. Trying to find a provider in this app is pointless. The only information you have is the name and location. There no other information on them ex. rating, specialty, who they cater to, etc. which leaves you to have to google it and god forbid you do that at the same time, because if you try it resets the app and here you are beginning your search again and back at step 1! I am not the kind of person who chooses a provider because their name sounds cool. I want to know a little more details so that my time and theirs isn’t being wasted! I don’t know, if you’re going to develop an app to make things “more convenient and accessible” then you should actually do that or don’t give the option at all.
