EXCESS MD TRAVEL to and from housecall———–add $300 per hour each way (unless our doctor is already nearby). We currently have providers based in San Francisco, Oakland, Burlingame, and Santa Rosa, California so that travel fees do not usually apply to house calls in these areas. For example, if the doctor has to travel 1 hour to see you and 1 hour return, the excess travel fee is $600 in addition to the housecall fee.
Additional charges may apply for:
procedures such as wound repair and care, IV fluid hydration and medication injections
dispensed medications (written prescriptions provided upon request)
lab tests such as urine analysis and rapid strep tests
complex medical situations or complex medical patients
special form/document completion such as Physician's Report Form for Residential Care Facilities (RCFE)
evaluation & treatment of additional medical problems unrelated to the primary problem
additional patients at same site

PPOs & HMOs
***Did you know? Many ER copays are higher than the cost of a house call!!!
House call services are reimbursed by PPOs (up to 80%) and non-local area HMOs (up to 100%). However, do not assume that you will be reimbursed. Insurers like to keep your money as much as you want it for yourself.
We do not bill any domestic insurers directly (includes Anthem, Blue Shield, Blue Cross, Cigna, Aetna, United, Brown & Toland, Tri-Care, and Kaiser).Your reimbursement will be based upon out-of-network rates which are determined by each individual insurer. If you have a low annual deductible for out-of-network services, then you may receive substantial reimbursement. However, if your annual unmet deductible for out-of-network services is high, then you should expect minimal reimbursement.
We provide a completed claim form which patients may submit to their insurer for reimbursement.
Please contact your insurance provider directly to determine your estimated reimbursement.
