Best Doctors

Facing a medical challenge can be stressful enough without worrying whether you have the right diagnosis or the most effective treatment—especially when you consider that, according to the Institute of Medicine, it is likely that most of us will experience at least one diagnostic error in our lifetime. Which is why many are taking advantage of world-class medical expertise and offering Best Doctors as a benefit. To members and their dependents the service is entirely free, voluntary, confidential and independent of the Plan and the carrier.

With Best Doctors, the world’s top physicians review the medical cases of members and their families as well as provide other support services to resolve any level of medical uncertainty a member may have. . Members have immediate access to our database of more than 53,000 expert physicians in over 450 specialties and subspecialties. As a result, they make better informed health care decisions while plan sponsors decrease their medical costs.
