House call

Notification by a brokerage house that a customer's margin account is below the minimum maintenance level. The client must provide more cash or equity, or the account will be liquidated.

Margin Call

An order by a brokerage for an account holder to deposit more cash or securities into a margin account when the value of the cash and securities currently in it falls below some defined percentage. Every margin account has a maintenance margin requirement, which is money or securities an investor must keep in his/her margin account in order to be able to borrow from the brokerage. FINRA requires that the maintenance margin must be at least 25% of the amount borrowed, while some brokerages require a maintenance margin of up to 50%. If the maintenance margin falls below this, the account may be subject to a margin call. If the account holder is unable to make the necessary deposit, he/she must close out enough positions in order to make the deposit, or risk the account becoming blocked.

The house call has long been a part of the tradition of family medicine.[1-3] The last several decades have seen a drop in the number of house calls by physicians in the United States.[4] In a previous survey, fewer than half of the family physicians in the United States reported making more than one house call in a 12-month period.[5] This decline has been attributed to multiple issues, including increased access to transportation, a shift to the improved efficiency of scheduled appointments, and economics.[5-7] The purpose of our study was to survey practicing family physicians to assess their attitudes toward house calls and their experiences with them.
