eHealth Updates Mobile App to Add New Post-Enrollment Tools 
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/23/13 --  eHealth, Inc.
(NASDAQ: EHTH), parent company of eHealthInsurance and America's
first and largest private health insurance exchange, has released a
new version of its "eHealth Mobile" mobile application. The new
version incorporates the "My Doctors" and "My eHealth" features --
helpful tools that allow policyholders to easily access information
and features of their health plan after enrollment in an individual
or family health insurance plan. 
New Mobile Features:
 The My Doctors feature allows users to find
local doctors and store their contact information on their mobile
device. Users are able to access a doctor's address or phone number,
and click to be redirected to the doctor's location on a map, or call
the doctor directly.  
The My eHealth feature allows users to track their health insurance
applications and store key coverage data on their smartphones. Mobile
app users are able to manage their profile and keep track of their
applications and approval status, as well as review their purchased
health insurance policies and plan benefits. There is also a Health
Card Photo feature allowing users to take a picture of their
insurance card with their policy number for quick access while
visiting doctors and pharmacies.  
Better Health Plan Finder:
 The Better Health Plan Finder feature on
the new app acts like a mobile health insurance exchange. The feature
enables users to access individual and family health insurance plans
from over 180 insurance carriers nationwide. These same plans are
also available on eHealth's online marketplace, eHealthInsurance.com,
and its mobile site. Users can research, compare, and apply for
health insurance plans on an iPhone, iPad or Android mobile device.  
eHealth Mobile also includes these helpful features:  


 
--  The ability to compare an existing health plan to a new health plan
--  The ability for users to save a health insurance plan they like and
    review it at a later time
--  The ability to tell a friend about a health insurance plan through
    Facebook or by email
--  An FAQ with information about how to research plans using the mobile
    application and complete an application
--  A complete glossary of health insurance terms

  
"As more consumers get information and services from their smartphone
or tablet, increasingly our customers are also wanting to shop for
health insurance on a mobile platform," said Bill Shaughnessy,
president and chief operating officer of eHealth, Inc. "And even
beyond the comparison shopping experience we want to help our
customers make the most of their insurance policy with convenient
tools that keep their plan benefits and information right at their
fingertips. This latest release of our mobile app is just one of a
number of innovations that eHealth plans to roll out this year to
continue providing the best customer experience."
