A few months ago I told you about some really neat software called Quicken Health Expense Tracker, a free online program we offer all UnitedHealthcare plan participants that helps them understand their medical expenses at a glance.
Big news! We just announced an exciting new Health Expense Tracker capability that will make managing medical costs even easier.
The Health Expense Tracker software now has a new bill pay feature that lets health plan participants pay their medical expenses online by credit or debit card or with a qualified health care account. The software sends payments directly to the care-giver and records the amounts in the consumer’s Health Expense Tracker records.
Health Expense Tracker automatically assembles a complete financial picture of an individual’s medical-related savings and expenses in one convenient location by continually updating current claims information. The program sends email alerts for outstanding balances, tracks medical expenses for tax reporting and helps determine proper funding levels for pretax savings vehicles such as flexible spending accounts or health savings accounts. Health Expense Tracker also helps consumers understand the total cost of health care services t by keeping track of deductibles and out-of-pocket costs, and breaking down calculations behind the amount billed.
With information written in clear, non-medical language, Health Expense Tracker simplifies records of an individual’s care and medical benefits, making it a great online resource to help all of us become better health care consumers. Maybe that’s why an average of more than 10,000 plan participants have signed up to use the tools each month since we introduced the program in December of last year.
