One of the most difficult things about being diagnosed with a medical condition is identifying how and where to find the best medical advice.
As a result of our insurance partnership with MLC, we can offer you access to leading medical advice through a new benefit called Best Doctors. Best Doctors has a unique global database containing some of the world’s leading medical minds, and they can connect you with those specialists to ensure you have the right diagnosis and most appropriate treatment plan. This service is available to you, your partner, your children (including step children), your parents and your parents-in-law.
Founded by Harvard Medical School physicians in 1989, Best Doctors now has access to more than 50,000 leading international specialists, all of whom have been nominated by their peers as a leader in their field. (They cannot pay to be part of the selection, nor can they nominate themselves.)
Best of all, it’s free!
