Each in-home care team includes a nurse practitioner (NP) or physician associate (PA) and a medical technician. An emergency medicine physician is always available by phone for consultations when needed.

The in-home medical care unit is an in-network service with most health insurance plans and is often the same out-of-pocket cost as an in-network urgent care center.
