Patients & Caregivers

Focus On The Whole Person

Housecall Doctors is a local network of specially trained clinicians who focus solely on in-home Medical care.

We specialize in helping patients who have a hard time getting out to see the doctor. Our residentialist clinicians look at the whole person – mind, body, spirit – and advocate for our patients to get the best care possible.

Our goal is to help patients optimize quality of life and prevent unnecessary trips to the hospital. Without our services many of our patients would need ambulance or wheelchair van transport just to get basic medical care. Our service relieves the anxiety of access to quality medical care.

Insurance & Coverage

Homecare House Call Doctors

We work primarily with Medicare patients. Just like with visits in a physician’s office, Medicare usually covers 80% of the cost for in-home clinician services. Either the patient or their secondary insurance company is responsible for co-payments and/or deductibles.

Besides traditional Medicare, we are contracted with a number of large managed care plans and medical groups. Housecall Doctors Medical Group is the only independent housecall company committed to serving both straight Medicare patients and patients on Medicare Advantage plans.

We also accept private payment for services.

Benefits of Housecall Doctors

How We Help You

Clinician Access

We can act as your primary care physician, or work with your current primary care physician. If you are having trouble going out to see your primary care physician, or you aren’t seeing them as often as needed, we can assume primary responsibility for your care OR provide supplemental care between visits with your office doctor.

Coordination of Your Care

We often work closely with home health and/or hospice staff. We have experience in coordinating with these services, communicating your needs, and updating them with your status of care. If you have any questions about what these services entail, we would be happy to walk through the process with you.

Decrease Unnecessary ER Visits

For vulnerable patients, trips to the hospital have high risk of complications. Utilizing our services can help prevent hospital admissions or readmissions by 50%. Having your doctor come to you eliminates transportation difficulties & potential harm, and ensures uninterrupted care.

Many of our patients suffer from heart or lung problems, strokes, arthritis, dementia, and other illnesses common in older Americans. Some patients have severe pain or suffer from depression.

Many factors besides medical conditions impact health and quality of life; for example, mobility, safety, nutrition, social isolation, caregiver support, and hygiene all play a role.  Other factors include a strong clinician relationship and a firm understanding of disease processes and prognosis. Understanding the whole patient allows us to provide better care for them.

Our expanded network of resources helps patients to access other important services such as caregiving, nursing, physical therapy, medical equipment, and medical supplies.  When in-home patients need to move into an assisted living facility, we can assist with facility recommendations, and complete the paperwork necessary to help the patient with their move
