Meridian Visiting Physicians

Frequently Asked Questions

Being disabled or home bound is the main criteria for Medicare and private insurance patients to be seen by a home visiting physician.

Can Meridian Visiting Physicians be my primary care doctor?

Yes! Meridian Visiting Physicians can act as your primary care provider.  If you already have a primary care physician, MVP can act as a consulting physician with your other providers.

If I already have a primary care physician, why would I need a home visiting physician?

Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurances allow you to have both.  Home visiting physicians are trained to assess your overall needs in the home.

Do I need a referral from my primary care physician?

No, you do not need a referral from your primary care physician.

What medical insurance do you accept?

We accept Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurances: Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Health Care, Humana, Aetna, etc.

Will my insurance cover the entire cost of my home visit?

Possibly!  Similar to an office visit, you will still be responsible for your co-pay and deductible.  If you have a secondary insurance, it is possible they will cover any remaining costs.  If you do not have insurance, please call our office to inquiring about out-of-pocket pricing.

Can Meridian Visiting Physicians see patients in an assisted living facility?

Yes!  Meridian Visiting Physicians can see patients in group homes, independent living facilities, and assisted living facilities.  We are even listed as a “preferred provider” for some!
