House Calls Are Back! Vitable Health Offers On Call Medical Professionals for Families

When I was recovering from Sepsis, one of the things that bothered me most was the unavailability of nurses and nurse practitioners for in home care.

I remember asking my hospital case manager if I could have a nurse check on me for a few days, just to check my vitals as I was terrified of relapse. She explained that it would not be covered by my insurance, and even if I would pay for it, you could only pay for nurses in 8-hour-shifts.

So when I heard about Vitable Health, a new service being launched in the Philadelphia area, I knew it would fill a significant gap in the marketplace. The service offers on-demand Urgent Care through a network of Board-Certified Nurse Practitioners.

Users can have a Nurse Practitioner visit them in their home in one hour or less. For parents, this is the miracle we’ve been waiting for – no germy wait rooms, long wait times, or dragging sick kids out of the house late at night.

Why didn’t we have this that time my son fell off a trampoline and cracked his head open but didn’t actually need stitches? Or that time my daughter had a double ear infection and we had to pay $300 for an ER visit?

The Nurse Practitioners can evaluate your symptoms and come up with a treatment plan which may include writing prescriptions. You can see a list of injuries and illnesses which may or may not be treatable by this service online.

The service is strictly $79 per visit – with no hidden fees. Considering even the best insurance plans often have high emergency room co-pays, this offers considerable financial relief.

The service also offers extended availability with 8 a.m. – 10 p.m. hours Monday-Friday and 10 a.m.- 7 p.m. on weekends.

Plus, every visit scheduled on Vitable enables the company to offer free and reduced-cost healthcare to medically underserved communities. Vitable commits up to 5% of their net revenue to free and reduced-cost healthcare services.

Learn more and sign up for the Vitable online. You only pay when you make an appointment – and the time and stress you could save is invaluable.
