Frequently Asked Questions
Hi, I’m Clare!
What does Clare Medical of New Jersey Offer?
The integrated Clare Medical of New Jersey team is made up of a dedicated group of physicians, nurse practitioners, and other clinical staff who will visit you at your community residence. They are senior care specialists who are available to come to you when a home visit is the best way to serve your medical needs. For those for whom it is difficult to get to a doctor’s office, this is an excellent solution.
Is there any extra cost for a Clare Medical of New Jersey visit?
No, there is no extra charge for using a Clare health care professional. We accept Medicare as the primary insurance for physician services and you will be responsible for no more than you would in a regular office visit to other physicians who accept Medicare.
Will I see the same provider on each visit?
Typically you will see the same practitioner on all regularly scheduled visits. You may also receive services from other care providers if the need arises for an urgent or specialty visit.
I already have a primary care doctor; do I have to give up my doctor to get services from Clare Medical of New Jersey physicians?
No, you do not have to give up your doctor. We are happy to work with your doctor to supplement services when you need to be seen at your community residence. In fact, with your authorization we’ll provide your doctor with access to your electronic medical record, making it easier for both you and your physician to better coordinate your care. There may be times when your condition is such that you cannot easily get out to visit your doctor. We are happy to provide services until you’re able to get to your primary doctor again.
What if I need a specialist?
We can arrange for a referral to a specialist, should the need arise, or we will work with any specialist you currently use. And if you should need to go to the hospital, we will work with your admitting physician to make sure your care is coordinated on admission and on discharge. If the need arises, we can help arrange for a doctor for your hospital care.
How do I get to meet you and discuss your services?
Just call our office or leave a message below and we will arrange an introduction at your community residence with a member of the Clare team. You will be glad you did!
