What to expect during an In-home Health Evaluation
Signify Health works with your health plan and primary care provider as another layer of support on your journey to better health. For example, many of the leading Medicare Advantage plans support their members with a no-cost, In-home Health Evaluation by a licensed Signify Health clinician.
During your appointment, you'll meet with a healthcare provider who is ready to discuss your health concerns and answer any questions. Our in-home visits include a physical, vital sign check, medication review, and important health screenings. All information gathered during the visit will be shared with your regular doctor.
Every day, Signify Health physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants engage thousands of people – wherever they call home – conducting unhurried conversations and offering a more complete view of an individual's whole-person health.
On average, our in-home visits last 2.5 times longer than a typical primary care appointment. Learn more about what to expect by watching this brief video.

Signify Health works with leading health plans, offering no-cost, in-home health evaluations to plan members. Once a health plan identifies people who might benefit from an In-home Health Evaluation, a member of the Signify Health team contacts the member to schedule an in-home visit. These visits are then confirmed and performed by a Signify Health-contracted clinician, like a doctor or nurse practitioner.
Signify Health is a trusted partner of many leading health plans. In fact, we partner with at least 24 out of the top 50 Medicare Advantage plans, as well as providing services to certain Medicaid and commercial plan members. To learn more about our programs, you are welcome to call us at (855) 984-5121. You may also want to contact your health plan to see if you qualify.
In-home Health Evaluations are a service offered by health plans at no cost to you, the plan member. This visit is performed by a licensed clinician inside your home and lasts about 45-60 minutes. During the visit, the clinician will focus on your overall health, well-being, and identify any potential issues or barriers to care. It is intended to be a supplemental visit and does not replace your annual wellness check-up with your primary care doctor.
An In-home Health Evaluation with Signify Health is conducted by a licensed clinician. It includes a comprehensive health exam, a medication review, as well as an assessment of your current and prior health conditions. During the visit, the clinician will also discuss any concerns you may have about your health, as well as discuss your mental well-being. The clinician will also work with you to look for any safety hazards in your home, like something that could cause a fall. Additional screenings, exams, or tests may include colorectal cancer screening, diabetic retinal exam, bone density screening, and a HbA1c test, which is used to diagnose or manage diabetes.
