How the App works
The App is intended to be used by adults (18 years of age or older) who are either a member of a health plan or a patient of a health care provider that has chosen to offer the App to their members or patients (collectively, “Patients”). A health plan or health care provider customer may also decide to provide the App to a Patient who is a minor child 13 years of age or older. The App may not be used by individuals who are under the age of 13.
The App is a person-centric smartphone solution that uses a chatbot technology to provide informed, relevant, and non-clinical support to Users. THE APP DOES NOT PROVIDE PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL OR BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CARE SERVICES. PYX HEALTH IS NOT A CLINICAL PROVIDER OF MEDICAL, BEHAVIORAL OR EMERGENCY SERVICES. IF YOU NEED IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE, CALL 911 OR CONTACT YOUR NEAREST EMERGENCY MEDICAL PROVIDER.
Retired services (like Pyx Pals and health care zone notifications)
You may be using (or have used) an older version of the App that allows you to give App access to adult family members and friends involved in your care (called “Pyx Pals”), and/or have automatic notifications sent from the App to your health plan, health care provider and/or Pyx Pal when you are near to or enter certain places, like a hospital, crisis response clinic, or urgent care center (a “health care zone”). Health care professionals (for example, a counselor or health plan care manager/nurse) cannot (and could not) be a Pyx Pal. This older version of the App also allows you to chat with your chosen Pyx Pals through text messaging on the App (called “chats”). Pyx Health, your health plan, your health care providers, and other members of your care team do not (and did not) monitor or view these chats.
Effective 3/5/2021, we are retiring the Pyx Pal service and health care zone notifications. We may continue to support the Pyx Pal service and health care zone notifications after this effective date for a limited time for Patients of health plans and health care providers who want to continue to make these services available to their Patients under their agreements with Pyx Health. All other Users will use the newer version of the App, which does not support the Pyx Pal service. If you are or were a Pyx Pal, and are not a Patient of a health plan or health care provider who is contracted with Pyx Health, we may move you to the default network so that you may continue to have personal use of the App. However, you will no longer receive information about the person for whom you were designated a Pyx Pal. If you have any questions or concerns about this change to the App, please contact us at email@example.com.
