I was willing to overlook the fact that both my mother and father and my brother in law died at the Hampton Sentera CarePlex several years ago when I became stuck with the newly named Sentera Health Insurance through my employer. I urge anyone to run the other way and find a different carrier. I will certainly be urging others who are city employees and their family members to voice their complaints to City Council before the next open enrollment period and demand another option. I have spent over TWO HOURS on the phone today just trying to get a human on the phone who can tell me if a claim for my medication had been submitted and will it be approved. I was just passed around from department to department and put on hold until my phone died. I am not even able to use the stupid app they encourage you to use because it says they cannot validate my account. I’m pretty sure I know my SS number, address and date of birth. I can’t wait until the next open enrollment! I was finally able to get a person who could answer my question. It turns out my medication will not be covered because it’s a newer medication and Sentara has not added it to their list yet even though it’s been in pharmacies for over a month, and was released by the FDA 2 months ago. Yeah, save yourself the headache and just say no.
I’ve been trying to use the telehealth feature throughout the day today, and was kicked off every single time. I started the consult with the bot questions and after trying to upload the required photo I was kicked back to the home page. I thought I did something wrong having never done it before, so I tried multiple different ways to upload the photo, tried multiple different WiFi connections, and no matter what I did I was kicked out of the consult. You’d think my questionnaire would have saved, but nope. Back to square one every time. Really disappointed with this app...
The app construct features are well meaning. However, the search engine for medical, pharmacy, doctors, etc. is buggy AND so far, the digital member ID print/view has never worked. This a real problem as we have yet to receive our physical member ID cards via the postal mail. I called Sentara member support about the virtual ID card issue in the app, and they had absolutely no idea about it not working. Please fix these issues. We looked forward to moving from Anthem over to Sentara, but so far the experience has been lacking.
Would like to have dental and eyes included in health plan coverage instead of separate. I’m still a Sentara employee but working flexi hours which means I work designated hours in a six week schedule but make myself available when there is a great need for staff however because I am flexi I don’t qualify for the group benefits. I feel this is not right. If I have to use the marketplace I should at least get a greater discount because I still am a Sentara employee.
My app and my account on their website has not worked pretty much all your long they’ve known about it well before March I have not gotten one answer to it’s going to get fixed or is it going to get fixed I just keep hearing that we’re going to address it we’re going to address it we’re going to address it and then I don’t hear anything for weeks there are certain things I can’t access because and yet I have not gotten any information about anything. Beyond frustrating it’s been since March and I don’t know if they’ve even started to do anything about it
Easy to use and wonderful ability to contact through a chat option. Can update all information right in the profile section of the app. I just love the end user ability to use the app to have a virtual visit and find providers of any kind for whatever medical services you seek!
This app is trash! I go to register and put in my ID and it says there is an error and to contact member services. I did it with and without the last 2 digits and with and without the * and it was all the same. Tried the other option of plan type and then it takes you to a screen for your name, last four of SSN, and DOB. I put that in and it says “please make sure you entered your info correctly. Need help? Contact member services.” And it doesn’t let you do anything else. I’m pretty sure I know my name, last 4, and my DOB. I should not have to call member services to register for an app.
I registered and I got in the day before yesterday. Now this morning and yesterday when I tried to sign in the circle just keeps turning. And throws me out of this stupid app. I keep closing it out and and then try signing in again. Whatever update you did, you need to go back to the drawing board because you have not and I repeat not fixed the problem. So I’m not going to keep wasting my time with this useless app taking up unneeded room on my phone. It’s not working so I’m deleting the app. 🤬🤬🤬🤬👎🏻. I didn’t even want to give it one star. It’s not even worth that.
Originally I left a 1 star review..the developer reach out and stated they updated the app.. evidently it fixed whatever bug was preventing me from registering. Great app once I got in. Original: Every time I try to register I get a “fail to serialize” error. Even tried reinstalling. App doesn’t work.
i’ve been trying to create my online account and every time I put my member ID in it deletes it when I go to select the plan type. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling the app and it still doesn’t work. Neither does the website.
The app is pretty decent for the most part. My main problem is when I go to the find doctors section, the link that says “Find More Provider” for dental, vision, and chiropractic doesn’t work, but the other ones do.
As an employee of this company I am embarrassed that our customers have to use this. Login has been impossible for over a month (dec 2023) and I cannot refill my prescriptions. FaceID is finally working but doesnt help if you cannot log in.
Latest update just loops with an update available message
Latest update just loops with an update available message Completely deleted the app and redownloaded - same issue. Open the app, skip the “tour”, get prompted to update the app. Open the app store, no update just the open button because the app is up to date.
Idk what’s worse the app or the website. The app recognizes my face and says its signing me in but then never loads, I tried logging in with my user info.. fail. Still not loading. The websites even worse, after I sign in, I see the find a doctor button and click and nothing loads.. useless
It’s very clunky and not user friendly. There is a 2 step verification process which is fine, but if you hit the back button it logs you all the way you - and then you’re locked out of the system for about 30 minutes. Super inconvenient.
I believe you have a bug in the “Find a Doctor” section. The section asks for all asterisked fields be completed; however, the “Select a Plan” drop down has no options within it. Therefore, the whole page refuses to process! Thus, no doctor’s search! Thank you for your time!
I’ve been trying to get into this app for 2 days now. It has a loading circle that never goes away. The app is fully updated and so is my device. How am I supposed to get anything done if I can’t even get the app to open
Customer reps are nice when I’ve had to call multiple times almost every billing cycle with billing issues. I still can’t pay a single statement on the app, even after the most recent download today. You have to pay all or one. I still have a bill that I paid for 9 months ago that states it is unpaid. Again, I’ve called multiple times about this and it still says it’s unpaid. This app is such a joke!!!!!
After I enter in my log in information. The app stays on the screen with a dark gray spiral loading square. It never goes past this screen. I’ve deleted it and reinstalled it several times with no improvement.
When I tried to sign up for an account, I had to enter my birthdate. However in the “month” field, I was only allowed to select January-June. My birthdate is in November, making it impossible to sign up.
The app and the website are terrible. Crashing all the time, glitching, won’t let you log in. You think with all the money I pay them they could afford a competent tech team. I mean seriously, it’s 2020 get it together already!!!
I have no idea how the app works because I can’t get past the login screen. I use a password manager other than the apple one (because I have non Apple devices), and pasting doesn’t seem to be allowed in the login screen.
