If left untreated
Without seeking medical attention for your fever, you may not get to the root cause of the issue, which can lead to a multitude of complications. For instance, untreated heat exhaustion can lead to internal organ damage, untreated rheumatoid arthritis can lead to permanent joint damage, and untreated bacterial infections can lead to sepsis.
That’s why it’s important to call DispatchHealth as soon as you notice a high fever. We accept most major health insurance carriers, including Medicare and Medicaid, and offer an affordable flat rate for uninsured patients. We’ll also send a detailed report of our treatment to your primary care physician or assisted living facility. Get in touch with us via our website, our app, or over the phone to receive top-notch medical care at your front door within a few hours.
