The Care You Need, When You Need It
At DispatchHealth, our mobile healthcare teams are the backbone of everything we do. Every mobile healthcare team consists of two medical professionals: a physician assistant or nurse practitioner along with a DispatchHealth Medical Technician (DHMT). Together, these professionals deliver the expert medical care our patients need, and always with a compassionate attitude. To ensure our healthcare teams have the best support possible, an emergency room physician is always available by phone.
People We Serve
We’re redefining the healthcare system here at DispatchHealth. From pediatric patients to geriatric patients, we can provide prompt healthcare services for just about any person and any concern. Our services are especially ideal for homebound individuals and those dealing with Alzheimer’s disease, chronic conditions, social phobias, and disabilities. Best of all, we are in-network with many major health insurance companies, including Medicare, UnitedHealthcare, Aetna, and Humana, among others. Most patients pay between $5 and $50 after insurance, depending on the type of plan they have. Self-pay patients can expect a flat rate of $375.
Conditions We Treat
At DispatchHealth, we can treat everything that an urgent care facility can—and more. Some of the most common non-emergency illnesses and injuries we treat include:
- Asthma and allergies
- Bedsores and pressure ulcers
- Eye infections
- Flu (influenza)
- Food poisoning
- Infected wounds
- Minor sprains and strains
- Sinus infections
- Strep throat
- Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
Services We Provide
Our mobile healthcare teams have fully equipped medical kits with many of the same tools and equipment found in an emergency room. This allows us to perform advanced testing for both common and complex medical conditions. Turn to us for:
- 12-lead EKG, PT/INR
- COVID-19 testing
- Flu testing
- Pregnancy testing
- Strep testing
- Stool culture
- Urinalysis and urine culture
- Catheter placement
- IV fluids
- Splinting, staples, and suturing
Once we’ve finished with our services, we’ll be happy to call in any prescriptions and handle the billing details with your insurance company. We’ll also complete a detailed report for your primary care physician.
