Paying Medical Bills the easy way, Finally!
The App takes a few minutes to set up, but once you get done, Wow! Your medical bill comes, you select who to pay, when and how much and for what reason. By the way, everything is multiple choice! Last step, take a photo of the actual bill or upload your own copy from an email or whatever; so many options. And finally, select SUBMIT! Within 72 hours you’ll know if your payment is approved. Very convenient. I’ve paid only 3 bills with it so far and it’s a snap and done sort of deal now. No more stamps and envelopes. However I did notice it took a bit longer for the bill to be ACTUALLY PAID than I anticipated. So make sure you pay the bill fast, because it took nearly 3 weeks for one of my bills to get paid. I even got a call from my doctors office asking where was my co-pay? I told them I paid it through this app, and I was happily informed that this is normal. Apparently my clinic is use to dealing with bill paying agencies and are very familiar with this App! So that’s another WIN in my book!
Way easier than the website!
I really appreciate how much simpler to navigate this app is than the website. I especially like that I can submit my documents with a photo. Plus I can track it all.
The one bug I’ve noticed was that when I tried to confirm my submission my session seemed to freeze. It didn’t give me the legalese or the confirmation window that lets me know it went thru. When it finally did submit it went through twice because I kept trying. But this has only happened once.
I guess the other thing that is a little challenging is the date selection feature. But that’s so minor. Once I got used to it, this has made life so much easier!
Wonky with photos & files
We just adopted this at work, but is by no means easier than our previous vendors. When you try to upload photos of expenses, it’s super wonky with the way it pulls up photos. It pulls up folders, with no discernible organization. Instead of seeing recents or favorites, it’s all over the place. And instead of selecting source type, it auto-pulls iCloud folders, which is just as messy as you can imagine. So I just save everything into the one random folder that comes up first, but that’s not ideal for my own organization. Not an intuitive or seamless experience. Same with files. I’ve followed the file guidance, but still have no luck posting them. And when I make a claim, it’s hard to tell whether the image/file is accepted. Once I realized that my file wasn’t because my claim was marked incomplete, I went back in to upload again. When I uploaded a PDF or an image, it doesn’t give me status or action button for my next step. After trial & error, I figured out that I should just close out of the claim & hope for the best. Not a great experience.
