Care at Home

Coordinating care for complex conditions among multiple physicians, providers, and caregivers can be challenging. At BlueShield of Northeastern New York, we want to keep you healthy and at home.

We have partnered with Landmark to offer Care at Home - a no-cost, in-home service that complements your doctor's treatment plan, and assists you and any family members or friends who may be involved in your care. Landmark is a physician group that specializes in making house calls and delivering team-based care to people with multiple medical needs.

  • Schedule and prepare for appointments.

Don't forget to get your Flu Shot!

During the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to get a flu vaccine. It helps reduce your risk of flu-related complications and reduces the burden on the health care system. Flu season runs October through May, and people age 65 and older and those with chronic conditions are most likely to end up in the hospital from flu complications.

What you can do:
 

  • Get vaccinated early. The flu shot can take up to two weeks to become effective, so the best time to get it is the end of October, but it’s never too late. . Vaccines are available at your doctor’s office, your pharmacy, or through Care at Home.
  • Call Care at Home. If you start experiencing flu symptoms, call us as soon as possible. We can treat you in the comfort of your own home, prescribe medication to help ease your symptoms, and monitor you to prevent further complications.

Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 9 p.m., at 1-844-330-0509 (TTY 711)
