We understand that if someone is diagnosed with a serious medical condition they are almost certainly in a difficult and worrying situation. That's why we make Best Doctors available to all Group Critical Illness scheme members at no extra cost.
Best Doctors provides second medical opinions, connecting members and their dependants to global medical expertise to help them to make better informed decisions about their health.
The service is available to group critical illness scheme members and their dependants: the member's spouse/ partner and any children, including legally adopted children and stepchildren.
Best Doctors is a global organisation which brings the world's leading medical experts to scheme members and their families when they need it most. The service can provide:
- an independent and comprehensive report, confirming diagnosis and giving treatment recommendations, from the world-leading experts chosen to review their condition.
- a definitive medical opinion, delivered in a confidential and easy to understand report.
- telephone support from a dedicated case coordinator.
Here are just some of the conditions for which members can rely on Best Doctors expertise: Musculoskeletal conditions, skin diseases, cancer, major trauma, burns, stroke, renal failure, organ transplants, heart, eye, hearing, speech, lung and bone disorders, diseases of the nervous system such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and other conditions causing major discomfort or interference with a healthy and productive life.
Scheme members are responsible for all costs associated with any medical treatment, travel and lodging.
