Step 2: Explain your symptoms

When you call, you will be asked to provide a few details about your illness or injury and some information, like your primary care provider’s name, as well as your address. DispatchHealth can treat many urgent illnesses, so long as they are non-life threatening. No pre-registration required!

Step 3: Receive care at home

On average, DispatchHealth’s medical team arrives within two hours after calling. Each DispatchHealth medical team includes a nurse practitioner, along with a medical technician. An on-call ER physician is always available by phone for consultations by DispatchHealth.

Step 4: They’ll take care of the rest

DispatchHealth will call in any prescriptions you might need, update your doctor within 24 hours, and work directly with your insurance to process billing. DispatchHealth is in-network with most insurance plans and typically costs the same as a traditional urgent care visit.
