Initial Diagnosis Assistance

 

Many Canadians have experienced long delays in finalizing a diagnosis of a serious illness which can severely impact health and result in prolonged illness, delayed treatment and even death. Complex conditions requiring multiple specialist consultations can take years to diagnose and in some cases may never be accurately diagnosed. MyCare Second Opinion works to ensure a correct diagnosis and treatment plan are identified in days or weeks, instead of months or years.

  1. Medical file compilation and review
  2. Electronic transfer of files
  3. Retest of pathology
  4. Additional specialist assessment(s)
  5. Additional diagnostic scans (MRI, CT, PET, etc.)
  6. Travel costs for approved specialist(s) assessments and diagnostic scans
  7. Collaboration with attending Canadian physicians
  8. Analysis reports including treatment recommendations
  9. Complex or difficult diagnosis – multiple specialist consultations
  10. Optional upgrade to full medical insurance for surgery or treatment at a top tier US healthcare facility via MyCare Advantage Insurance.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY

  • Thank you for giving me peace of mind during my claim. You were amazing to work with. I would recommend this to my friends and family so they can rest assured there is help out there!

    Nancy B., Winnipeg, MB

  • I was uncertain where to turn when I received a diagnosis of cancer, but then remembered that my employer implemented MyCare coverage for our entire company. Thanks to MyCare for stepping in and easing my stress while providing options.

    George D., Victoria, BC

  • My daughter was recently diagnosed with a life threatening disease so we contacted MyCare right away. Upon review of her medical file and MRI scan, it was determined that she merely had a pinched nerve causing similar symptoms to that of MS. I thank my husband every day for pushing me to get a second opinion from MyCare.

    Patricia H., Kelowna, BC

  • MyCare assisted me with getting a diagnosis within a few weeks when my condition had not been diagnosed for over 6 years. I am fortunate that my boss added MyCare to our benefits as it literally saved my life!

    Christine F., Toronto, ON

  • I was initially skeptical about MyCare until I was recently told that I had a medical condition in which I needed to see a specialist. The wait was over 8 months and totally unacceptable so I contacted MyCare. They were able to assist me in a matter of weeks and got me a diagnosis without any further delays. I'm not sure what I would have done without them.

    Betty E., Regina, SK

  • The team at MyCare were extremely helpful while dealing with a breast cancer scare which turned out to be less severe than originally thought.

    Joan O., Windsor, ON
