Texting for Insurance Deductibles and Copays

George over at Patient Centric Healthcare blogged about using mobile phones’ texting capabilities to get insurance company deductibles and other information. Nice idea, worth reading — somebody will make some money off of it. He says:

Imagine texting your plan for an immediate response on:

  • Your deductible
  • Your FSA balance
  • Your copay on a specific drug
  • Whether a provider is in network
  • The status of your prior authorization
  • A list of formulary alternatives
