If you said, yes to any of the above…Care@Home by Prospect can help.
If you had a recent hospitalization you may have received an in-home visit by a Prospect nurse practitioner, or other care team member. These visits are important in making sure you are stable after your hospital stay and you do not end up back in the hospital….we know that is not where you want to be.
Prospect continues to invest on programs to keep you living your best life possible. That’s why we’re expanding our Prospect360 care model to include Care@Home by Prospect. This will allow you to access in-home medical 24x7, 365 days a year, and not just when you come home from the hospital.

The services provided by the Care@Home by Prospect care team are available at no additional cost to you. Program criteria must be met to receive Care@Home by Prospect services.
