Identity Eligibility
Primary Homecare is the leader in providing a program that is not just a doctors office, but a distinct program aimed at illness prevention and health maintenance.
Our board certified Nurse Practitioners bring the doctor's office to your home on a regular monthly schedule, along with sick call visits and 24 hour telephone on-call service.
From house calls by Nurse Practitioners to specialty services such as in-home laboratory blood draws, cardiology, podiatry, optometry, Ultrasound, X-Rays, physical and occupational therapy, and skilled nursing, we are able to provide the most-inclusive house call medical services available.
In addition, we can arrange and manage nursing, hospice, prescriptive medicine, durable medical equipment, and home delivery of medications and diabetic supplies.
Who is eligible?
Anybody who has difficulty getting to a medical office for any reason, including lack of transportation, is eligible for a Primary HomeCare house call, but this service is especially intended for those with medical conditions such as dementia, CHF, asthma, COPD, hypertension, edema, arthritis, or conditions that require a cane, walker or leave them bedbound.
What our customers said
Just want to thank you again for arranging home care for my parents. We love Jerry and recognize that we are extremely fortunate to have access to this service. After a thorough assessment, we got new prescriptions ordered, flu shots, an ear irrigation, and lab orders. You cannot imagine the relief in knowing that they will be evaluated and treated on a regular basis.

General Services FAQs
Scheduling a Home Visit
Home visits are scheduled on a regularly montly basis through our office. Patients are normally called 24 to 48 hours prior to arrange a visit. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a specific time for the visit due to travel time and the needs of each patient seen that day. Follow-up visits are scheduled based upon your specific needs
Sick Calls
If the patient becomes ill and is in need for a home visit, we will do our best to fit you into the schedule within 48 hours of your call. Primary HomeCare is not an emergency service. If you feel that your situation is urgent, or you cannot wait for a visit, please call 911
Call Backs
Primary HomeCare provides 24 hour telephone on call coverage 7 days a week. If you have caller ID with call rejection on your phone, you will have to disable it by dialing *87. After your call back, turn the service back on by dialing *77
We are unable to provide prescription refills after hours or on weekends. If you need a prescription refilled, please call our office during regular business hours from 9AM to 5PM Monday through Friday.

I really need to see a doctor, can I?
Nurse Practitioners are nationally board certified in their speciality. They are PCP's and are able to treat acute and chronic conditions. They do collborate with doctors and will be able to provide high-quality primary care to your in your home.
What if i need to see a specialist?
We will make referrals to the appropriate specialists based upon your individual medical needs.
What if I cannot leave my home to see a specialist?
It is very difficult to provide speciality care in the home. We are able to provide for cardiology, optometry, podiatry, wound care and diabetic care. Other specialties can only be seen in their offices.
If I make a change to your practice, how quickly can I be seen?
In most cases, if you have Medicare or a PPO, you should be scheduled for a visit within 24 - 48 hours from the time we are able to verify your insurance. Some HMO's may not initiate a change in your PCP until the first of the following month, so that could require a longer wait.
Do I have to change my Doctor?
Yes. Primary HomeCare is a primary care provider (PCP). For matters of safety, you should only have one PCP.
What if there is another doctor's name on my insurance card?
You will have to call the customer service number for your insurance compnay and ask them to change your PCP to our office. If you are not sure how to do this, our staff can assist you.
Can i get my prescriptions renewed?
Yes. Nurse Practitioners are able to prescribe medications, as well as other treatments.
What if I am sick?
Call our office and request a sick call. If it is an emergency, you will be instructed what to do.
A visiting nurse already comes to my home 3 times a week.
Nurse Practitioners are different from the nurse who comes to your home. The Nurse Practitioner is a Primary Care Provider and will coordinate your care with the visiting nurse, much the same way a doctor would.
