Home-Based Primary Care
Do you remember when the Doctor did house calls?
Montgomery Medical Associates is excited to offer those patients being discharged home from sub acute rehabs or hospitals, Home-Based Primary Care services for follow up care, known as transitional care. We also offer primary and acute health care to those with disabilities that make it difficult to see a provider in the office setting.
Home-Based Primary Care is designed to provide you with medical care in the comfort of your home and can be long term.
How is this different than Home Health?
Our Nurse Practitioner (NP) will come to your home and during your initial visit will review your medical history and complete a physical exam. The Nurse Practitioner will review and discuss your personal goals, review medications, write prescriptions, order in home testing such as radiology tests and blood work as needed.
For those seen for transitional care, our team aims to prevent re-hospitalization or emergency room visits following your return home and to coordinate care with your primary care doctors. Your home Nurse Practitioner will visit you weekly for up to 4-12 weeks depending on your condition.
Home-Based Primary Care is designed to work seamlessly with your Home Health Agency. The Home Health Agency will provide you with Skilled Nursing, Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy. Our nurse practitioners can also help arrange these services in your home.
How are these services paid for?
Services are covered by Medicare, Blue Cross, United HealthCare, Aetna, Cigna and most commercial insurances. Please contact our office to have your insurance verified for the in home services.
How to get started?
It’s as easy as making a phone call. Contact us even before you leave the hospital or rehab to have services arranged as soon as your home.
We have a dedicated extension for our Home-Based Primary Care team at 301-279-2779 extension 450. Leave us your name and number and we will return your call immediately.
Montgomery Medical Associates and its HealthCare partners want to provide you with a well-coordinated Home-Based Primary Care experience. Our goal is to provide you with the same services that you expect to receive in the doctor’s office in the comfort of your home.
