How Healthee’s health benefits app is making healthcare navigation easy

Why shouldn’t we navigate health benefits like our grandparents did? What good is there in using a health benefits app?

According to a Bend Financial survey, 56% of respondents indicated that they feel “completely lost when it comes to understanding health insurance.”1

In other words, most people are not just a little confused about health insurance. They are “completely lost” when navigating their coverage options, benefits, exclusions, HSAs, FSAs, etc.

Most of us wouldn’t even think of listening to music, choosing a restaurant, or driving in a new city without the help of a user-friendly, reliable app — so why don’t we have a health benefits app for the modern age?

Many businesses still expect employees to make do by searching through a database or, worse, picking up the phone…like in our grandparents’ times.

And that doesn’t just mean time lost. The difficulty of navigating healthcare can impact health outcomes, finances, and even employee motivation.

Fortunately, an innovative health benefits app, such as Healthee, can offer guidance, support, and resources to navigate the complex US health benefits system. With desktop and mobile applications like these, consumers are empowered to take control of their health decisions and make more informed choices.

What is a health benefits app?

Health benefits apps are software applications designed to assist individuals in managing various aspects of their healthcare and health insurance.

These apps harness technology to provide users with the tools, information, and resources to make informed decisions about their healthcare and navigate the complexities of the healthcare system. Essentially, they distill the jargon-filled, hard-to-read benefits plans and insurance documents into easily digestible information that users can use.

Introducing Healthee

Healthee is an AI-powered health benefits app designed to help people navigate their health needs with precision and speed.

We understand the challenges of navigating the healthcare system, including rising costs and complexity, so we created an all-in-one healthcare navigation solution. That’s why, with Healthee, you can easily find the information you need to make informed decisions about your health.

Key features of the Healthee health benefits app

During the development of the Healthee app, we wanted to create a user-friendly tool that offers accurate and personalized health-related information with just a few clicks.

We’ve created unique features in the app that can help you simplify your healthcare navigation.

Healthcare and benefits navigation

Healthee can answer any health benefits question and provide the best recommendations to help you maximize your benefits and improve your health outcomes. 

Whether you need to know about a medical procedure, want to find the nearest in-network healthcare providers, or have questions about your health insurance, we’ve got your back.

You can ask anything related to medical procedures, terminology, or your health insurance information, and our platform will provide you with fast, accurate, and personalized responses.

Plan comparison

Who doesn’t dread the stress of open enrollment season?

Trudging through details about each health plan to figure out which fits your needs is an annual headache, leaving you feeling like it might be simpler to just pick one out of a hat. 

Let those headaches be a thing of the past. Healthee’s plan comparison tool is here to make everyone’s life easier.

With Healthee’s plan comparison tool, users can make an informed decision independently without any hassle. The tool provides all the necessary information about benefits coverage, payment structure, terms, and conditions. Users can compare different plans side-by-side, then choose the one that best fits their and their dependents’ healthcare needs — as easily as you’d buy something on Amazon.

When using the plan comparison feature, the Healthee app will prompt you to enter some baseline information, like expected medical needs for the coming year and current doctors you visit. After digesting this data, Healthee will help you analyze the various options you have and make a decision by weighing key factors like:

  • Consider your health needs:
    First, you will need to think about and assess your health needs for the coming year. Do you plan to have a baby? Are you planning on undergoing a specific medical procedure? Considering your current health needs and anticipated medical expenses for the upcoming year will help the Healthee app give you the best results. However, you can always change your prompts to see how doing so affects the results.
  • Review the plan details:
    Next, you’ll want to factor in the cost of each plan per pay period and how claims will be split between you and the insurer. The app will present the cost of each health plan, including premiums, deductibles, co-pays, and coverage limits, helping you visualize these payment structures in a clear and easy-to-use way. 
  • Assess network coverage:
    Additionally, the Healthee app can check the network of healthcare providers associated with each plan and verify if your preferred doctors, hospitals, and specialists are within the network to minimize out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Understand coverage limits:
    The app will also inform you of coverage limits or exclusions within each plan. Knowing these limitations can prevent unexpected expenses and ensure you choose a plan that meets your unique needs.

Benefits coverage information

Healthee can assist you in understanding the difference between copayments, deductibles, coinsurance, and out-of-pocket maximums, showing you how much of each category you’ve paid thus far in the year. This increased visibility can help you anticipate expenses and budget accordingly.

In addition to helping you visualize your to-date spending breakdown, you can also see the extent of coverage available for your dependents. Depending on your plan, this can include pediatric care, maternity benefits, mental health services, and other family-related healthcare needs.

Many health plans also offer networks of preferred providers. With Healthee’s provider search feature, you can easily locate and choose healthcare professionals within your network. This can help you maximize your benefits and minimize out-of-pocket expenses.

Appointment booking

Imagine you have a chronic health condition that requires regular check-ups with a specialist. 

Before, you had to manually schedule these appointments by calling the doctor’s office multiple times, waiting on hold, and coordinating with the receptionist to find a time that works.

This process is time-consuming and inconvenient. And it can even lead to delays in receiving critical care.

Fortunately, Healthee’s appointment booking feature eliminates many of those worries, allowing you to schedule your appointments at the click of a button.
