Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Are you eligible for physician home care?

If you have difficulty getting to a doctor’s office, then house call visits are likely covered in the same manner as a regular visit to an office based physician.

Q: What insurances do you accept?

We accept Medicare and most other insurances. Private pay options are also available.

 

Q: Will my insurance cover a visiting doctor?

Medicare and Medicaid insurance will cover home visits for those patients who qualify. Medicare will cover 80% of the allowed amount with the other 20% billed to the patient's secondary insurer, the same as the physician's office. Visiting Physicians Association also has an Indigent Care program for those who qualify.

Q: How much does a visit cost?

We accept Medicare and most insurance. Deductibles or co-payments required for medical services are handled in the same way as a trip to a physician's office.

 

Q: How often does the doctor come out to visit?

Each patient is seen as medically necessary based on your physician's assessment and plan of care.

 

Q: What services do you offer?

We offer basically the same services you would receive in a doctor's office setting including physical examinations, laboratory services and diagnostic testing.

 

Q: What if I have to go to the hospital?

Geriatric Consulting Group works with all the local area hospitals and will continue your care before and after your hospital stay.

 

Q: What are the hours that the doctor visits patients?

Our physicians see their patients between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm.  Geriatric Consulting Group generally schedules morning or afternoon visits.

 

Q: Can I still see my regular doctor?

Yes.  GCG can act as secondary physician.  And, GCG can assume the role of your primary care provider. GCG will advise your regular doctor during your course of treatment and consult with any specialty providers you have as deemed necessary.

 

Q: What if I need to get a hold of my doctor after hours?

After hours, we have an on-call service that is available to triage your medical needs.

 

Q: Are you eligible for physician home care?

There are no obligations. You are in charge of your health care. You decide whether you want us to provide care just when you are sick or on a regular basis.
