Primary Care Physician (PCP) - Home Care at Clover Health
Jersey City, NJ, US

Clover is reinventing health insurance by working to keep people healthier.

Overview:

Our first complex care offering is the Clover In-Home Primary Care program. This program provides vulnerable members, including those with major complex chronic conditions, frailty, and advanced illness, with in-home access to an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, and social workers. Our providers are trained in geriatrics and supportive care and are able to focus on the symptoms and conditions that matter most to complex older adults.

Our ideal candidate must have strong experience and comfort in managing higher acuity patients in less intensive care settings—working with patients and their caregivers to provide care that aligns with patient preferences and wishes.

Job Description:

  • Determine the need for and facilitate care by an emergency department, hospital, skilled nursing facility, home health agency, hospice and/or community-based organizations in a manner consistent with patients’ goals of care.
