Signify Health clinicians meet people where they want to be: at home. As part of our in-home health evaluation program, health plan members are eligible to receive a no-cost, in-home visit from a licensed, highly trained clinician. During these visits, a physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant examines the member’s whole health, including mental well-being, and identifies potential barriers to care. We partner with at least 24 out of the top 50 Medicare Advantage plans, as well as provide services to certain Medicaid and commercial plan members.
