Optum Care in Connecticut

In-home visits 

Get an annual health visit in the comfort of your own home.



Your health is important. So we want to make it as simple as possible for you to get the care you may need. Through our in-home visit program, we offer you an annual health visit right in the comfort and privacy of your own home.

We’ll send a licensed clinician to your home. This might be a nurse practitioner, a doctor or a physician assistant. You can pick the date and time that works best for you. It gives you a chance to discuss your health care needs and create a plan for prevention.

  • It depends on your health plan and the state you live in. Check with your plan to see if it covers an in-home visit.
  • During the visit, a licensed clinician will:

    • Go over your medical history.
    • Discuss any health problems you may have.
    • Perform a wellness check-up and health screenings.

    The clinician will also:

    • Check your medicines.
    • Arrange for you to have lab tests, if you need any.
    • Check your home for any safety issues. 
    • Offer health information that may be helpful for you.

    The clinician will send information about the visit to your doctor. The clinician may also refer you to special care programs, if they are part of your plan. 

    You may be able to have an in-home visit once per year. How often will depend on your plan. It’s not meant to replace your regular visits to your doctor.

  • If you qualify for an in-home visit, we’ll call you about 6–8 weeks after your health plan starts. We’ll check to see if you want to set up a home visit. You can also call your health plan to see if you qualify and learn more about the program.
