CorVel Android App Works Well


CorVel Android App

The CorVel Android app worked well for accessing claim information.

The Sedgwick app was covered last year.  Their app was the best of a very thin field in the Google Store.   Please note that I did not use the Sedgwick app again (viaOne Express) as it is unchanged from last year.  

Many companies may have Android Apps available.  The only apps covered in articles over the last few weeks were from the Google Store.   

The  CorVel app (My Care) allows the user, who I would think is the injured employee, to access their claims information including payments.   This is an excellent idea to avoid having the adjusters look up payment data.

There are five areas to access on the home screen (see below):

The one area which would seem to be the most necessary would be the My Payments portion of the app along with the My Contacts menus.  The other screens can be found by following the link to the app from the above fourth paragraph.

The Payment Verification Screen covers the payment specifics very well.

I have used CorVel’s claims system including an App Demo not too long ago.  Their claims system and apps all worked very well.

The CorVel android app, in my opinion,  leads the pack in the area of claims access.  CorVel also has a First Report of Injury app that I did not review.

Hopefully, in the near future, more of the Third Party Administrators and carriers will be providing apps.   The apps not only allow the many different parties to a claim easy access.

App growth would also indicate that an industry bereft in tech may be catching up to the rest of insurance marketplace.
