When Your Clients Need A Second Opinion

The Co-operators offers expert consultation coverage
for serious illness or mental health condition.

The diagnosis of a serious illness or mental health condition is a time for clear answers, treatment options and hope. You can provide this support to your clients, because The Co-operators offers Second Opinion Consult in association with WorldCare. It will help your clients make informed decisions about health care when it matters most.

Why your clients would choose a Second Opinion Consult?

Most physicians are trained to recognize the symptoms of serious illnesses; however, they may not have immediate access to the most up-to-date treatments or medical innovations. Second Opinion Consult puts patients in contact with physicians dedicated to specific fields of medicine: experts on the front line of specialized medicine.

Why get a second opinion for a mental health condition?

The wait for specialized psychiatrist treatment can be long but with this benefit, your plan members can seek a professional opinion as soon as diagnosed with a covered condition by a primary care physician, psychologist or psychiatrist. A second opinion can help your plan members find the right treatment faster.

What are the benefits of a second medical opinion?

  •  Peace of mind. Experts from top hospitals provide opinions tailored to each unique situation.
  • Ease of access. Opinions delivered without the hassle of arranging for appointments or travel.
  • Reinforce local physician-patient relationship. Working together to ensure the correct diagnosis and the most effective treatment.
  • Enhance care and quality of care. Ensure that the treatment with the greatest chance of success is put into effect as quickly as possible.
