UnitedHealth enrollees get data access via Quicken

UnitedHealth is giving nearly 700,000 customers access to billing data via the Quicken Health Expense Tracker. The roll-out follows a successful pilot program.

UnitedHealth will soon be giving nearly 700,000 customers access to their billing data via the Quicken Health Expense Tracker.

The roll-out follows a successful pilot program. The initial expansion will apply to members of select, large-business commercial health plan enrollees. UnitedHealth hopes to make it available to more than 20 million health-plan members by the end of the year.

The Minnetonka-based HMO says the Quicken tracker will help consumers better understand health care expenses and “help them make more informed decisions” about medical expenses.

One of the consumer-friendly features: The system sends e-mails alerting you to outstanding balances that your insurance won’t cover.
