VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: HouseCalls

APPROXIMATE TIME: 2:00

These days, you can have just about anything delivered to your door. How about a home delivery of good health and wellness? It comes from UnitedHealthcare and is called HouseCalls.

HouseCalls is a yearly health and wellness visit that happens in the privacy of your very own home. No driving to an appointment. No sitting in a waiting room.

Here’s how it works.

Our HouseCalls team finds a time that’s convenient for you and schedules the visit.

A health care practitioner, a physician’s assistant, medical doctor or nurse practitioner, comes to you at the scheduled time. The clinician completes a health evaluation, including a physical exam and other important screenings, then YOU decide what happens next.

You can discuss questions to ask your doctor at your next appointment, review instruc­tions from your last doctor’s appointment or chat about other health concerns you haven’t had a chance to talk to your doctor about. Whatever you need.

The visit takes about 45-minutes to an hour – plenty of time to answer your important health questions.

Your practitioner will even send a summary of your HouseCalls visit to your doctor.

And unlike those other home deliveries – there’s no additional cost for a HouseCalls visit, it’s a feature of your medical plan.

If you’re in good health or you already see your doctor regularly – you might not think HouseCalls is for you, but it is. Think of it as an extra layer of care – valuable one-on-one time you don’t always get in the doctor’s office.

So, when you get a phone call from our HouseCalls team – take advantage of this great program and schedule your HouseCalls visit. Or just call us and make an appointment!

It’s Easy. It’s Convenient. It’s UnitedHealthcare HouseCalls.

Before your HouseCalls visit

You’ll receive an appointment reminder with tips on how to get ready for your visit (see below). Also, the day before your appointment, our health care practitioner may call you to introduce themselves and answer any questions about preparing.

Notes for preparing

  • Be prepared to give a urine sample during your visit
  • Wear shoes that are easily removed to have your feet checked
  • Have any appointment cards for your doctor and specialists ready
  • Make sure all of your medications are in their original bottles ready to review
  • If you record blood pressure readings, please have those results available for review
  • If you have diabetes, please have your blood glucose meter handy, as well as blood sugar test results

During your HouseCalls visit

You’ll have 45 to 60 minutes with your health care practitioner for a physical, health screenings and more. A HouseCalls visit can be completed while sitting at your kitchen table or in the living room, and you can use the time to ask whatever health-related questions you may have. The visit is driven by you and your needs, so screenings and conversation topics can vary.

After your appointment

At the end of your visit, you’ll receive a personalized checklist of items to discuss with your regular doctor. Also, a summary of what you talked about will be mailed to you and your doctor. After that, we’ll see you next year – one HouseCalls checkup is included in your plan every year.

Less travel time. More face time.

Think of HouseCalls as an extra layer of care -- it's valuable 1-on-1 time you don't always get in the doctor's office. And it's tailored to your individual needs.
