Evaluation and Treatment Plans

Our care team strives to provide a proactive and preventative approach to patient health for patients of all ages. We are a valuable partner, delivering quality patient-oriented care through telehealth servicesOur programs are tailored to reduce unnecessary hospitalizations while focusing on the advancement of individual health management from your home.

Our providers care deeply about their patients long-term health. With a determination to provide the care and services in-house to ensure that each patient is treated appropriately. We work with our patient’s home health agencies and supply providers to ensure timely evaluation and treatment plans.

Routine Checkups

We do our best to pair our patients with the same providers for every follow-up visit. We highly encourage our patients to schedule a follow-up visits with us every 4 to 6 weeks to ensure that they are both comfortable in their home and to ensure that their prescription refills are up to date.

Home Health Evaluations and Certifications

A complete home care assessment is an essential step when coordinating care for an elderly loved one. At Midwest Home Physicians, our home care assessments are an essential part of our approach to home care. Before starting care, we meet with every potential client for an in-depth discussion of their care needs. This allows us to carefully tailor our services to each client’s specific care concerns and challenges.

DME Evaluations

Medicare and other insurance plans define Durable Medical Equipment (DME) in terms of what they will pay for. DME is covered under Medicare Part B—the part that covers out-of-hospital costs. From Medicare’s perspective, DME is equipment that is:

  • Durable: That means the DME is strong enough to be used over and over again. Examples are wheelchairs, hospital beds, and lifts to move the person from bed to chair. 
  • Medically necessary: The DME is used to treat or manage a disease, injury, or disability. Examples are diabetic supplies, hospital beds, intravenous (IV) tubes to deliver medicines, oxygen tanks, walkers or wheelchairs, and many others.
  • Not used by people who do not have an illness or injury: A person who is not ill or disabled does not need a hospital bed.
  • Used at home: Home can be a residence, assisted living facility, or long-term stay nursing home.

We evaluate every patient’s situation and file the DME orders so that they arrive right at the patient’s doorstep!

Medication Management

One of the most critical aspects of recovery is taking medications as directed.

This includes organizing medicines and setting up reminders to keep patients on track.
