Healthcare delivered to your doorstep

Geisinger at Home™ brings personalized healthcare to eligible Geisinger Gold Medicare Advantage members when they need it most – right where they live. Geisinger's at-home care program helps keep patients healthier, safer and better connected to their healthcare team.

How does Geisinger at Home work?

Working closely with patients’ primary care physicians, Geisinger’s team of doctors, registered nurses, dietitians, case managers, pharmacists and other medical support staff can visit patients as needed, right in their very own home. With regular home visits, patients are able to have their health needs met, often before becoming an issue that requires a trip to the emergency room or hospital.

Geisinger at Home’s spectrum of care includes:

  • Checkups
  • Routine testing
  • Wound care
  • Respiratory care
  • Nutritional needs
  • Urgent care
  • Specialty care
  • And more 

Currently, there are about 2,100 Geisinger Gold members enrolled in the Geisinger at Home program and nearly 10,000 are eligible.

Caring hands
“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.”

– Stanley R., 98


“It has been a wonderful program. I love that I can call on the spur of the moment when I need them.”

– Florence E., 84
Emergency admissions

 

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, results for the first group of patients enrolled in the program revealed a 40% drop in emergency room visits and a 40% reduction in hospital admissions

Geisinger at Home identifies eligible Geisinger Gold members who have complex, difficult-to-manage health conditions such as:

  • Kidney disease
  • Heart disease
  • Cancers
  • Dementia
  • And other conditions

Primary care physicians can also refer a patient to the program.
