How are your medical teams taking precautions during COVID-19?

Our teams wear surgical masks and gloves for every patient encounter. For patients with respiratory and/or COVID-19 symptoms, our teams also wear N95 respirator masks, eye protection, gowns, and shoe covers. Our teams follow strict guidelines for entering and exiting patient homes, and we thoroughly disinfect our kits and cars after every patient visit. Learn more about our COVID-19 response.

How quickly does the medical team arrive at my home?

After contacting us, it typically takes 1-2 hours for a medical team to come to your location. Please note that the ETA may vary depending on the number of patient visits we have that day. When you call to schedule a visit, you will be given an approximate arrival time.

Does urgent care provide x-rays?

While many Washington D.C. urgent cares don’t provide x-rays, DispatchHealth does offer x-rays and mobile imaging. This means we’ll come to your home to address your minor breaks, sprains, and bruises and get you a mobile x-ray if necessary.

How much does DispatchHealth cost?

A visit with DispatchHealth costs roughly the same as a walk-in urgent care visit. On average, most patients pay anywhere from $5 – $50 after insurance. The percentage of the total bill you’re responsible for is determined by your insurance plan. Note that if you have a high deductible plan, you will need to meet your deductible before your insurance will cover the cost.

What if I don’t have insurance?

If you do not have or we are not contracted with your insurance company, DispatchHealth accepts payment of a flat rate of $275 at the time of treatment via credit card. This flat rate is for everything that we do, which includes medications administered, procedures performed, and on-site lab tests obtained. At times, third-party service providers may be recommended including imaging, labs, prescriptions or other healthcare services. In these instances, the patient will be billed separately by those services. Payment methods include credit, debit, health savings account (HSA), health reimbursement account (HRA) and flexible spending account account (FSA) payments.
