Literally a scam. I've tried for 2 days to cancel my subscription and it doesn't work on their website and you can't do it through the app. They also have hidden added charges like ORDERING labs... This is all after having issues with my insurance because they keep trying to bill the insurance in California (where I am not). Look somewhere else, I'm out hundreds of dollars

The Plushcare doctors are great but the app and care coordinators leave a lot to be desired. The app is very buggy. Making an appointment is much easier on desktop. But you have to use the app for messaging. The messaging app does not allow for uploading pdfs...at least on Android it doesn't! Then when you send the care coordinators a shared pdf file from your personal Google Drive, they ask you to send a pdf file! The staff barely reads your messages and aren't tech savvy.

I have been having a few issues with the App for the first time today, but because the App has always worked great in the past I suspect the problem relates to a recent Android update. I still give the App 5 stars because the service I've received from the PlushCare team (including today with my App struggles) continues to be outstanding! My work schedule is very busy, and it is awesome to be able to get medical assistance 24/7 from a team that really seems to care.
