Boulder Valley School District has partnered with DispatchHealth to provide you with an exciting new health benefit that is covered by our Cigna insurance plans.

On-Demand urgent care, in the comfort of your home, work or place of need!
DispatchHealth is bringing back the house call using board-certified doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and EMTs, equipped to treat a wide range of injuries and illnesses.  DispatchHealth brings the same healthcare providers you would see in your local Emergency Room right to your door.

By using DispatchHealth for non-emergency medical needs instead of going to the ER, you will receive significant out of pocket savings when compared to a typical ER visit based on our medical plans. You will also enjoy a more convenient and integrated healthcare experience AND you help keep our health care costs under control.

How they compare:

Average cost of an ER visit: $2200   VS   DispatchHealth visits are 8-10 times cheaper

Average time spent with a physician in the US: 15 minutes   VS   Average time with a DispatchHealth clinician:  45 minutes

Average time spent in an ER visit:  4 hours    VS   Average wait time a DispatchHealth visit:  1 hour

How it works:
- Request care - The DispatchHealth team provides care from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., 365 days a year, including holidays.

- Explain your symptoms - Their providers will triage your symptoms over the phone to understand what's wrong and get the right care en route. 

- Receive care in your home - On average, their mobile teams arrive within a hour.

- Rest easy - They will call in your prescriptions, update your family doctor, handle billing with your health insurance so you can focus on feeling better, faster.

Things they treat:
They are ER trained and equipped to treat anything an Urgent Care facility can plus more including: IV placement, IV fluids, splinting, stitches, rapid infectious disease testing (flue, strep, mono, RSV), on site advanced blood testing, eye infections, skin rashes, asthma, bronchitis, digestive issues, and much more.

It's that easy!
The right care, right place, right time.
