UnitedHealth unveils telehealth app in employer-sponsored plans

Healthcare Drive reports on UnitedHealth’s (MN headquartered) new app…

  • The country’s largest private payer is rolling out a new virtual care app for the more than 27 million Americans covered in its employer-sponsored health plans.
  • The new UnitedHealthcare app gives users access to a practitioner via mobile device or computer. Beneficiaries can use it to schedule and conduct a virtual visit with a doctor. Physicians can diagnose a range of conditions during the visit and prescribe and send medications to local pharmacies for pickup.
  • The app will be free for the majority of people enrolled in the Minnetonka, Minnesota-based payer’s employer-sponsored plans, but consumers may have to pay additional out-of-pocket costs for telemedicine services depending on their plan and state requirements.
