Is my mother eligible for home visits from a doctor for her prescriptions

I just joined.  My mother will be 91 this month and has essentially deteriorated to the point that she is unable to leave our home to go see her doctors.  I wanted to create a new thread for this question but I don't know how.  She has Medicare and Tricare.  Might she be eligible for a doctor to come to our house to see her so that she can get her prescriptions?  Thank you.

I don't know the answer to the home visit, but you can definitely do telemedicine with Tricare.  Not sure about Tricare-for-life-plus medicare.  But here is where you can get a good answer: call them!

TRICARE For Life
WPS-Military and Veterans Health
  • TDD: 1-866-773-0405
  • 1-866-773-0404

 

Got this from the Tricare website. This is the link to the Tricare For Life site: https://www.tricare.mil/Plans/HealthPlans/TFL 

 

They have a downloadable handbook there.Good luck!

What you are asking depends on where you live. I live in Central Texas and almost everything can be handled over the internet. When I need a prescription renewed, I can text my doctor. Doctor visits, if needed, can be done online too. If someone needs transportation to a doctor's office that is available too. 

 

My insurance is with Baylor Scott and White.
