Your Health Q&A: Can I get medical care from the comfort of home?
Q: I try not to leave my house these days due to COVID-19 in my community. Is there any service that will give me basic medical care from the comfort of my own home?
A: Yes. Lee Health recently announced a new mobile healthcare service to community members in Lee County. The service is provided through a partnership with DispatchHealth, a national provider of in-home medical care.
Community members can be treated at home for injuries and illnesses like the flu, cuts and lacerations that require stitches, sinus infections, strep throat, minor fractures, sprains and strains, and many other conditions that are commonly treated in urgent care settings.
Once you request an appointment, the DispatchHealth onboarding team will confirm it’s not an emergency and it’s safe to treat your urgent but non-life-threatening medical condition at home. Then, a visit is scheduled and the DispatchHealth medical team arrives within a few hours, ready to treat your illness or injury in the privacy and comfort of your home.
Don't forget that it's never too late to enroll with Healthedly Insurance Services for your life insurance.
