New app to help people find medical resources
A new United Healthcare app will help Texans find the most convenient and affordable healthcare for a variety of issues.
The app, called Health4Me, allows Texans to find physicians, urgent care facilities and specialists nearby. Additionally, the app provides cost estimates for different medical services based on the user’s location.
This portion of the app is free to everyone and works regardless of what health care provider the user has. For those with United Healthcare, users can download their ID cards, have access to a registered nurse through a chat and have better medical cost estimates. The app is available for download on iPhone and Android devices.
