Things to consider:
- Medical second opinion is a self-pay service. At this time, most health plans do not cover a medical second opinion.
- Please note that even if coverage is available under your health plan, most insurance companies will require procedure codes to process reimbursements. We cannot provide procedure codes for any services provided through our medical second opinion program. We encourage you to investigate your insurance company’s requirements and are happy to assist you with any questions you have about our services.
- Signed approval is required by your local physician before a consultation can be provided.
- Timeframe for turnaround is approximately 10 business days from receipt of all records and payment.
- If you decide that you would prefer a face-to-face appointment at any time during this process, please call 410-735-4872. Face-to-face appointments and telephone consultations are not included in the Medical Second Opinion Program but can be scheduled separately.
