Home infusion therapy allows you to receive your medications through either an IV catheter, or through a tube inserted into your stomach or intestine, from the comfort of your own home. Your treatment will be prescribed by a physician, who will also oversee your care. In home infusion therapy, a nurse will train you or your caregiver to administer the medication(s) or tube feedings. A pharmacist is involved in selecting your delivery system, monitoring your therapy including any laboratory results, and collaborating with your physician for any changes and dose adjustments.
Here at Comfort IV Therapy, we offer a wide range of home infusion therapy services, and we will provide care coordination with your doctors, nurses, and insurance companies. Our staff is trained in the use of state of the art delivery systems so that you can maintain your maximum independence and resume your normal activities as quickly as possible.
What are the benefits of home infusion therapy?
There are a number of benefits to choosing home infusion therapy. One of the main benefits is the lower cost associated with this type of therapy. If you have a serious illness, it’s not always necessary that you be hospitalized. With home infusion therapy, you can receive your medications and treatments at home, which can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in medical bills.
Of course, it’s impossible to ignore the convenience of being treated in your own home. With home infusion therapy you can stay wherever you’re most comfortable, surrounded by family, friends, and familiarity. The mere fact that you’re comfortable and relaxed throughout your treatment may even help to make it more effective.
Is home infusion therapy safe?
Yes. Home infusion therapy has been proven to be just as safe as inpatient hospital care. Our home infusion specialists are trained to provide you with the highest level of care in the environment where you feel safest and most comfortable. Before initiating care, a member of our staff will assess your unique situation to make sure that you are a good candidate for this type of therapy.

Is home infusion therapy expensive?
The costs of your treatment will depend on the specific type of home infusion therapy you will be receiving. However, in most cases home infusion therapy is far less expensive than inpatient care at your local hospital. This is one of the many reasons patients prefer home infusion to more traditional methods of treatment. Many insurance plans will cover treatment with home infusion therapy, and Comfort IV Therapy accepts all insurances and plans. Before initiating therapy we will contact your insurance provider to confirm that our services will be covered and to find out if there will be any out-of-pocket costs.
