The selling point for switching to Optumrx was that I would save some money and have the convenience of home delivery. I couldn’t really see a downside. So, I picked my two prescriptions and choose to transfer them over. They never filled. They kept canceling my orders without notification. I would look on the app and see that they were either canceled or non-existant. I had to keep calling to find out why. They kept contacting my doctor and I received emails saying that they were approved. I kept having to inform them that there is an existing prescription -one that was filled easily with Walgreens (the original ones I transferred in the app). They kept claiming that my two prescriptions duplicated each other, despite them being on the same script from the same doctor and having been previously filled. Again, they canceled my order without notice. Eventually, I ran out of medication and became incredibly sick. They told me that they would expedite it, but later canceled my order without explanation. After two rounds and weeks of fake expedited orders I decided to switch back to Walgreens. Save yourself some grief and avoid this app. A couple dollars saved isn’t worth dying over.
I’m pretty computer and electronic savvy but this app will make even Bill Gates feel computer-illiterate. The interface is not user-friendly whatsoever and the data is always inaccurate! I am a 37-yo helping out my retired parents so I signed them up for OptumRx so that they don’t have to travel to the pharmacy or pay out-of-pocket. From the get-go I have had the worst customer service over the phone which made me reconsider going back to retail pharmacy but for the sake of my parents I decided to battle thru the rudeness and inconsistencies along with the incompetence of some of their agents. When I finally succeeded in signing them up after months and way too many phone calls, I thought I can simply use this app and never have to speak to an agent ever again. But boy was I wrong! The app is so hard to navigate through and the information is not up-to-date therefore I am not able to make “quick and easy” refill requests which means having to call and speak with these “awesome agents” once again. Can someone please just update the darn app and make it easy for senior citizens and myself to use? Otherwise just decommission the OptumRx app and stop toying with your customers.
The app is almost as horrible as the website. Logging in and loading various pages can take forever as I’m stuck watching the spinning circle for 5+ minutes before I give up and try again another day just to have the same problems. The app says I have zero orders sometimes and that I have one order a few minutes later. Medications will be listed in an order then suddenly not listed anywhere; then given a delivery date, then go missing from my list again. Order tracking gives no valuable information. My very critical meds have been sitting states away for six days “pending acceptance”. I reached out to Optum through their online system. I received an email saying I had a document pending my review. I assume it’s a response to my message, but the app doesn’t list documents anywhere and the website shows I have no documents. I really regret attempting to move my prescriptions to this service. It’s caused more stress not knowing if my meds will show up in time and fighting to navigate a clunky, non-intuitive, unresponsive app. I’m sorely disappointed. There is really no excuse for such a poorly designed, amateurish app from such a large company.

I am no longer a member of Blue Cross Blue Shield and have switched to a different insurance provider. I need to cancel my OptumRX account as soon as possible. Thank you.
