Second Opinion Program
An Informed Decision
You’ve just been diagnosed with a medical condition. Even if you believe that your local doctor is knowledgeable and well trained, perhaps you’d like a second opinion from an independent and objective international expert to confirm the diagnosis before you begin treatment. Maybe you’re interested in exploring the treatment options available outside your country.
A 2006 study of all autopsies conducted in the United States found a 40 percent misdiagnosis rate. The study found that approximately 10 to 12% of those cases the patient could have been discharged alive if an accurate diagnosis had been received.
Medicare4U proudly introduces its medical second opinion program which allows you to consult with leading international medical specialists – without getting on a plane – to confirm your diagnosis, review your current treatment plan and explore possible treatments in your home country or at medical centers of excellence around the world.
With a remote medical second opinion, you can plan the best course of treatment with the confidence that your decision was well informed. In addition, you’ll gain a valuable resource for staying up to date on the latest research and therapeutic advances for your condition.
