How much does an Online Medical Second Opinion Cost?
The cost to receive an online medical second opinion is $565.00. If a pathology review (reading) is required to complete your online medical second opinion (as is the case in most cancer-related diagnoses), there will be an additional charge of $180.00 for that review for a total cost of $745.00 for the second opinion and the reading.
Since we do not accept cash, your payment options include one of the following:
- A major credit card (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, or Discover) that will not be charged until your second opinion is completed and ready for your review online.
- A certified bank check or a certified money order from a U.S. bank and in U.S. dollars that will not be processed until your second opinion is completed and ready for your review online.
PLEASE NOTE: Unless your employer provides the MyConsult program as an employee benefit (see the FAQ below), the online medical second opinion is your financial responsibility. If your employer offers an employee-sponsored medical savings account, this program may be eligible for reimbursement. Please check with your employer's benefits department for clarification.
