Keeping our Geisinger Gold members healthier
Healthcare delivered to your doorstep
Geisinger at Home™ brings personalized healthcare to eligible Geisinger Gold Medicare Advantage members where they need it most: right where they live.
Geisinger's at-home care program keeps you healthier, safer and better connected to your healthcare team.
I was in the hospital four times in 2017 for heart and respiratory issues. I’ve been feeling so much better since joining Geisinger at Home that we recently had to schedule my home visit around playing 9 holes of golf.
How does Geisinger at Home work?
Working closely with your primary care physicians, Geisinger’s team of doctors, registered nurses, dietitians, case managers, pharmacists and other medical support staff can visit you as needed, right in your very own home.
Geisinger at Home identifies eligible Geisinger Gold members who have complex, difficult-to-manage health conditions such as:
- Kidney disease
- Heart disease
Primary care physicians can also refer a patient to the program.
With regular home visits, Geisinger at Home members can have their health needs met before they require a trip to the emergency room or hospital.
Lowering healthcare costs, cutting hospital stays
Receiving care at home helps reduce emergency visits and hospital admissions, which makes healthcare more affordable for everyone in the long run. In fact, we’ve seen a 43% drop in emergency room visits and a 48% reduction in hospital admissions from the first group of people who enrolled in this program.
More than 5,000 Geisinger Gold members currently benefit from Geisinger at Home in more than 15 counties in Pennsylvania — and nearly 10,000 are eligible.
Geisinger at Home’s spectrum of care includes:
- Routine testing
- Wound care
- Respiratory care
- Nutritional needs
- Urgent care
- Specialty care
“It has been a wonderful program. I love that I can call on the spur of the moment when I need them.”
