At your invitation, a licensed and board-certified nurse practitioner or doctor will come to your home to give you a health assessment with our Healthy Home Visit, at no extra cost to you.
They can also check your home for potential issues that may increase your chances of falling. We’re working with nurse practitioners and doctors around the country to offer you this service. Every year, 400,000 Aetna Medicare members take advantage of Healthy Home Visits.
But you already have a doctor, so why take the time?
Sure, this doesn’t take the place of a physical exam from your own doctor. But it can be a critical part of managing your health at home. We also share the information from your visit with your doctor. This helps you with your overall health care needs, and does not affect your coverage in any way. We are committed to supporting your best health. Meeting you in your home is for your convenience and comfort.
The visit lasts about an hour. It includes a limited, noninvasive physical exam. If need be, the nurse practitioner or doctor may recommend that you be further evaluated. Your doctor will get a report. Again — this visit is at no extra cost to you. It's all part of your Verizon Advantage Plan benefits.
