Home Visits Q&A

Why might someone need a home visit?

Many people — often the elderly — have chronic and debilitating health problems that require them to juggle complicated drug regimens and medical care. It can be difficult dealing with transportation costs, the hassle of getting prior authorizations to visit a specialist, and understanding Medicare prescription drug plans.

Vantage Medical Associates PC provides house calls to help seniors and other homebound individuals deal with these problems and get the medical attention they need in the comfort of their own homes.

In addition to home visits, the Vantage Medical Associates PC team also offers telehealth appointments for issues like prescription refills and follow-up visits.

What is involved in a home visit?

Home visits include visits from a doctor and other health care workers. The practice can provide home health aides to help with daily care or relief for family caregivers. Your provider can do in-home testing and lab work, even dialysis.

What are the benefits of home visits?

Obviously, home visits remove the need to leave the house, making medical care more available to homebound individuals. While providing greater access to health care, home visits also successfully reduce the number of emergency room visits, hospitalizations, re-admissions, and nursing home placements.

What should I expect during a home visit?

When you call Vantage Medical Associates PC, the friendly staff takes the necessary information to verify insurance coverage and schedule your appointment. The practice makes every effort to schedule your appointment within 48 hours. Home visits are typically scheduled monthly, but you can request one anytime.

On the day of your appointment, your visiting provider does a thorough physical exam and reviews your medical history and medications.

They use a laptop computer to access your health records, send prescriptions to your pharmacy, and order additional diagnostic services that can be done in your home. These can include blood work, X-rays, ultrasounds, EKGs, and echocardiograms.

If needed, your provider schedules a follow-up appointment to discuss test results and check on your condition. When you need care from a specialist who doesn’t provide home visits, Vantage Medical Associates PC arranges transportation to get you to their office.

Your provider works with you, your caregivers, and specialists to develop a customized care plan. Vantage Medical Associates PC can arrange for additional in-home services like skilled nursing, home health aides, and delivery of medical equipment and medications.
