This last year has been a CRAAAZY one for our family. We had FOUR visits to the Emergency Room. I know, right?! You can’t make that stuff up! Well, I guess you could, but why on earth would you want to?! My mom went to the Emergency Room twice, (she’s SO much better now, yay!). My husband passed out and basically broke his face! lol (No really, read all about it here) and then I fell UP the stairs (yep, UP!) and broke my foot! (Yes, you can read about that one too right here!)
Thankfully, throughout this whole process we’ve been covered by UnitedHealthcare. Now with our FOUR Emergency Room situations, we definitely NEEDED to go to the ER but too many people (us included) are going to the ER for a cold or a sprained ankle. I don’t know about you but I think it’s just kind of what we’re accustomed to doing. That means we’re spending tons of money for a service that could maybe be done for less than half the cost of the ER or Urgent Care. Why are we doing this? Probably because we don’t KNOW that we have other options. Thankfully, UnitedHealthcare’s website has a new fun program called Quick Care Quiz that helps teach you where to go to get the best care options for you and your family. I say…BRILLIANT and thank you UnitedHealthcare! This quiz offers information on several options for care that will serve different purposes: 24/7 Nurseline, Virtual Visits, Primary Care Doctor, Convenience Care Clinic, Urgent Care or Emergency Room. (Here’s a little preview of these Six Smart Choices for Care)
Why am I telling you about this? Because duh…after my family’s crazy year…I like knowing what my options are and plus the Quick Care Quiz will help you learn what each service offers ANNNND the cost difference between them. Win! Annnd while you’re there checking out the Quick Care Quiz, UnitedHealthcare is also hosting a sweepstakes. Double win! One is a crossword puzzle called What’s the Word? that teaches you about health care terminology. The other is a longer, 4-part, engagement called Are you a Health Plan Pro? That helps you learn about premium vs out-of-pocket costs and the benefits of health care accounts like HSA’s and FSA’s. Stuff I for sure need help learning about. They are giving $100 away weekly and $500 monthly! Awww yah!
