Getting the Right Immediate Health Care

This post is brought to you by United Healthcare. 

Hi everyone and welcome back to CloudMom. Not sure what happens in your family, but in mine, whenever we get hit with what we think to be an urgent health care problem, we head to the ER. Trouble is that oftentimes the ER is not the right place for us to be! So we end up waiting for hours at the ER only to be discharged with a huge bill we could have avoided.getting-the-right-immediate-health-careUnited Healthcare has a new engagement or game called Quick Care Quiz that walks us mamas and papas through exactly what our options are for the tricky health care situations we face with our kids. The game has two parts. One quizzes you on various quick care options such as a free nurse line, a virtual visit, your primary care physician (explaining what your primary physician does), convenience care clinics, urgent care centers, and of course, emergency care or the emergency room. Each of these centers specializes in different types of treatments for the different types of health care issues we families face. The game puts our knowledge to the test, making sure we know how to distinguish between these types of centers so that when we have to think fast, we can make the right choice.

Part Two of the game quizzes you on the different costs of these centers so that you know what you’re looking at before rather than, as in our case, after you’ve been given a bill!

And here’s the fun part! Once you’ve completed the quiz — which you can take daily for the next month — enter your information and the promo code “cloudmom“. You’ll automatically be entered to win one of four $100 weekly prizes and one monthly $500 prize. Take the quiz here

    My fiancé and I both work in healthcare, so we navigate it pretty easily. There are so many things that I think the average patient does not get information about that could really help them.

    The cost of health care is astronomical but we have the best care in the world. Ask all the people who travel from around the world to be seen @ Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic, Memorial Sloan Kettering, MD Anderson etc.

    Thanks for doing this giveaway. One time I was in an accident and had to go to the er. Luckily nothing was really wrong but it cost me $40,000 for a couple hours. When they billed me I wrote them to tell them I had no money and asked to forgive the debt and I never heard any more about it.

    • So sorry about your accident! TY for entering!

  • I took the quiz and realized that we have spent a lot on our family’s healthcare this year!

    • It’s definitely an eye opening quiz! Very helpful!
