Our emergency medicine and hospitalist medicine trained care teams are equipped with all the tools necessary—including imaging and IV infusions—to treat common to complex injuries and illnesses in the home. DispatchHealth is partnered with most major insurance companies and works closely with primary care and specialty care providers, EMS, health systems, senior living facilities, and employers to deliver in-home care that reduces unnecessary emergency room visits, hospital stays and readmissions.

For urgent medical care at home, you or your doctor can book an appointment online in just a few clicks or by phone:
1. Book an Appointment
We’re available 365 days per year from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. in most areas. When you schedule your appointment, we’ll ask about your symptoms and give you a time frame for our arrival (typically the same day).
2. Enjoy Expert Medical Care at Home
We arrive at your home with everything needed to treat your illness or injury. Your care team will include a physician assistant or nurse practitioner and/or a medical technician, remotely supported by an emergency medicine physician if needed.
3. Rest and Recover
We make care easy, so you can focus on what’s most important, feeling your best. Following your appointment, we’ll call in any prescriptions you need, update your doctor, and handle billing with your insurance company.
Our in-home visits are covered by most major insurance plans, including Medicare Advantage, and the out-of-pocket cost to you is typically the same as an urgent care visit.
For hospital alternative care at home, you can experience a convenient and comfortable treatment alternative to a hospital stay. You must be recommended by your doctor or DispatchHealth urgent medical care team.
For recovery care at home, you can receive a follow-up care visit typically within three days of leaving the emergency room, hospital or skilled nursing facility. Your discharge team or doctor must recommend you for recovery care at home treatment.
If imaging, outside laboratory, and/or prescriptions are needed after your visit, these services will be billed separately.
DispatchHealth accepts most major insurance plans in the areas we serve, including Medicare Advantage and Managed Medicaid.

DispatchHealth should not be abbreviated or shortened. Do not use DH or Dispatch.
Do not use urgent care, mobile urgent care, or in-home urgent care because it can undermine the complexity of our care and has regulatory implications in some states; urgent medical care is OK to use. The only exception is that urgent care can be used for online search terms and paid ads due to the nature of how consumers search for care.
Do not use “emergency room replacement” or “ER at home” or “hospital at home” or “hospitalization in home” or “hospital care at home” or “SNF at home”; it is ok to use the word “alternative” when referring to our care services as an ER-alternative, hospital-alternative, or SNF-alternative.
Do not focus on the negatives of ER or hospital experience because it can disparage our partner relationships
Do not use “refer a patient” or “patient referral” in any materials or communications to healthcare professionals.
Do not specify the exact care team members who come into the home because it varies by market, by partner, by service, and by acuity.
Do not use “board certified” when referring to our providers (even though they are) in a broad platform like the website because certain states like Texas require the exact board name to be used which limits our ability to use the term generically
Do not refer to DispatchHealth as offering care within an hour time window (e.g. 2 or 4 hours)
Do not use ED when referencing the Emergency Room to consumers; instead, ER should be used.
