How quickly does the medical team arrive at my home in Houston?

When you schedule your appointment, we’ll ask about your symptoms and give you a time frame for our arrival - typically the same day. 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.

How much does urgent medical care cost with DispatchHealth ?

A visit with DispatchHealth costs roughly the same as a walk-in Houston urgent care visit. 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.

Does DispatchHealth provide x-rays?

DispatchHealth can arrange imaging services, such as x-ray and ultrasound, for qualified patients. However, imaging services will not be delivered at the time of your initial visit. Imaging is usually completed 1-3 days after your visit and may be performed either in your home or residence (if you qualify for this service) or at a separate outpatient imaging center.

Patients qualify for mobile imaging in the home or residence if they are unable to transfer to a brick-and-mortar location due to physical and/or mental difficulties. Their provider will need to provide a reason for portability in the documentation.

Can I receive hospital-level care at home?

Possibly! DispatchHealth Advanced Care is an alternative to an in-patient hospital stay for certain conditions that can safely be treated and monitored in the home. To learn more visit: https://www.dispatchhealth.com/patient-advancedcare

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 $375 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.

    • They brought everything you would see in an emergency room, but the emergency room was our bedroom! They set up an IV. They knew what they were doing. And they were very personable. We never felt rushed. And the insurance covered it all. We didn’t have to pay a dime.

    • I wasn’t sure if I should go to the ER. My doctor recommended DispatchHealth. It’s great for people like me who have COPD and other health issues. They tested my blood, ran COVID and flu tests, and even gave me IV fluids. Before leaving they sent a prescription to my pharmacy.

    • They did the ultrasound right there with my Dad on the bed. Didn’t have to go to the emergency room or anything. And the results went straight to his doctor. Very professional, just seamless. And they were very caring and compassionate.

    • It was wonderful to know that someone would come to the house within a few hours. Every experience we’ve had with them has been excellent. Whenever they leave, they know how grateful we are that they came to our house and helped us.
