Why an In-Home Health Visit Is Important
Taking care of your health is more than just visiting the doctor when you’re sick. This is why Aetna Medicare Plan enrollees are encouraged to participate in Aetna’s Healthy Home Visit program. This free, convenient service allows you to safely meet with a licensed and board-certified nurse practitioner or doctor once a year in the privacy of your home to talk about your individual needs.
While the assessment does not take the place of regular doctor visits, it can be a critical part of managing your health at home. You can use this yearly visit to:
- Ask health questions
- Review your medicines and dosages
- Receive recommendations for health resources you may need
- Discuss how to set up a safe, healthy home
The visit lasts about an hour and includes a noninvasive physical exam. A family member or friend may be present. After the visit, you and your doctor will receive a summary of your assessment.
