New SMS-based services, Txt4health and Text4kids, are available for free to people enrolled in UnitedHealthcare Medicaid plans in York, Allegheny and Philadelphia Counties.Txt4health delivers personalized messages to help people follow recommended preventive care guidelines, remember to take medications and attend medical appointments, track weight and exercise goals, learn healthy eating and nutrition tips, and more. On the other hand, Text4kids helps parents remember well-child visits, learn more about vaccine safety, track their child’s developmental milestones and more.
Both services, developed by Voxiva, are available now for free to people enrolled in UnitedHealthcare Medicaid plans in York, Allegheny and Philadelphia Counties. There is no charge to receive these texts from UnitedHealthcare; however standard message and data rates may apply.
“Txt4health and Text4kids provide useful health information for people in a convenient, cost-effective way, no matter where they are,” said Susan Schick, CEO of UnitedHealthcare of Pennsylvania.
