Please know that the safety of your group is our top priority! In the event of an emergency, 911 will always be contacted.
For non-emergency situations, we utilize other healthcare options, such as the following:
Inn-House Doctor: We partner with Inn-House Doctor, a company that provides top-level medical care in the comfort and
convenience of the home, workplace, or hotel room on a 24-hour, 7-days-a-week basis.
To utilize this service, you would simply call the appropriate on-call phone number, which your Education Program Leader
would provide. A physician returns the call within 15 minutes to provide the necessary pre-assessment and service plan.
A licensed physician from one of the finest local hospitals then provides high-level, on-site care, as needed, in the comfort
of your own hotel room.
If this service is needed for a student who does not have a parent on the tour, Inn-House Doctor would contact the parent
via telephone to receive parental consent, which is similar to how the situation would be addressed in a hospital.
Charges vary based on services performed; there is a minimum charge of $400. Inn-House Doctor only accepts credit
card payment. They do provide the paperwork needed to submit to insurance companies. Again, for those students who
do not have a parent on the tour, Inn-House Doctor will work with parents via telephone regarding these matters.
It is good to know that Inn-House Doctor will address any follow-up questions from primary physicians in order to maintain
continuity of care for any patient who they see.
This service is available in the Washington DC, Philadelphia, and Boston areas.
Minute Clinics: There are a number of CVS drugstores in Washington, DC, Virginia, and New Jersey that include Minute
Clinics. Your Education Program Leader will assist you in finding the closest one.
