Further, it is not possible to talk with Quicken MEM support. You can post a problem, leave you phone number, and they will contact you at their (not your) convienence.
What am I left with? 1) Back to doing my medical expenses by hand and 2) facing a Windows XPsp2 reinstall.
Today, after two months of use, the program refuses to open my data file. There's no help at all to be found as to what the problem might be -- the file is there, it seems to have data in it -- but it's effectively gone. Fortunately, this happened just days before the 60 day guarantee ran out, and I was able to get a no-questions-asked refund from Intuit.
Had I not been stuck wuth the product, would I have started afresh? Probably not.
The interface is a little quirky, but you can used to it. It also seems very sluggish; there's a slight delay involved with doing just about anything in the interface, which quickly becomes very annoying. The value of the product is minimal relative to the problems with entering data (and now the uncertainty for me that my data might disappear at any time).
Take your money and buy a good book on using Excel, and roll your own medical tracking spreadsheet.
So I thought this program was the answer. It really could have been, if Intuit would listen to feedback and would give it attention. But as willing as they are to provide email assistance, they never fix the problems, just give workarounds.
In many ways, it works OK. You wait for your insurance EOBs (claims processing reports) to arrive, and then fill in the blanks, then pay your medical bills based on what the EOB information was. Once you figure out how to enter your deductible limits, that is. And therein is one of the problems.
There are limits to what it will allow you to enter. For example, my insurance provider calculates individual deductibles toward individual limits. When 3 people in the family meet their individual limits, the family deductible is considered met. That's fine. But this software has no way to tweak this type of limit (it just calculates the amount paid toward deductibles by ALL family members), thereby making the reports on family deductibles somewhat unhelpful and useless. That's just one issue -- and I'm no programmer, but can that be so hard to adjust? And heaven forbid you have a payment that is not part of the deductible -- they sent me a workaround for this problem that still has my head spinning.
I agree with the other reviewers that it's slow -- it sometimes just loads one 2 inch square area for a few seconds before the page appears when it's loading. And I have a new fast computer.Read more ›
