was the first life insurance company in the world.

 

Below is a list of frequently asked questions New York House Call Physicians commonly receive, hopefully this will help quickly address your query, we don't like navigating websites either:

 

Do you do house calls?

Yes, our doctors and health care providers do house calls.


Do you accept my insurance for house calls?

We do not accept insurance for house calls; however, some insurance companies will reimburse you for the out-of-pocket cost of house calls. We can do all the paperwork on your behalf to try to get you all your money back.


But I have Medicare, you must accept that?

We do not accept Medicare; however, we have some Medicare patients who have gotten reimbursed by Medicare. We can help submit all paperwork on your behalf to try to get you reimbursed from Medicare; however, note that since we don't participate with Medicare, we are legally obliged to tell you that you can seek care from physicians and other health care providers who do accept Medicare and that Medicare may not reimburse you for any medical services we provide.


How about Medicaid, do you accept that?

No, we do not accept Medicaid.


Do you accept my insurance for office visits?

We do accept some insurance plans as out of network providers for office visits only. In general, the plans we can work with are called "PPO" insurance plans. If we do accept your insurance, you will be responsible for paying your copayment and may be responsible for paying your co-insurance and your deductible. If all this sounds confusing, that's because it is. Contact us and we can help.

 

I want to be seen as soon as possible, how quickly can a doctor see me?

We see many patients within 2-4 hours of receiving the call; however, we prefer to schedule with at least 1 business day notice.


How much do you charge for a house call?

We currently charge $1,750.00 for a physician house call as a flat fee. All of our fees are listed on our website. We have no hidden fees. Please see Our Fees.


You have to be kidding, your fees are outrageous?!

There is an old expression: "You get what you pay for."


Are your fees negotiable?

No, we do not bargain.


Can you recommend another house call service?

While we are not a referral agency, but you can try Our Competitors.


Do you do house calls in Westchester, Long Island, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, the Hamptons, and all of Manhattan?

Yes, we do house calls throughout the NYC area and outside of NYC as well. Additional fees apply for travel outside of NYC.
