Advanced Medical House Call patients will have a co-pay, although Medicare and most other insurances will cover the majority of the cost of a visit. It is your responsibility to make sure that house call visits are covered by your insurance prior to the first visit. Most insurance cards have a toll free phone number located on the back of your card. Fees are comparable to a doctor’s office. There are no additional charges based on where you live within our service area.
See the map below for current service areas. We are growing and adding new service locations regularly.

Hospice and Palliative CareToo often people think of hospice only in the last days or hours of life. The truth is that hospice care can benefit your loved one and your family for a long time. Hospice offers specialized nurses; counselors and therapists to process emotional issues for the whole family; social workers to receive appropriate care and resources available to cope with problems caused by serious illness; home care aides to provide personal care services; volunteers to provide companionship, run errands or provide general assistance; chaplains to offer spiritual guidance and comfort; and bereavement counselors to provide comfort and support. If you are interested in Hospice or Palliative Care talk to Laura and she will put you in contact with referring agencies.
