With more than 70% of the global healthcare providers now utilizing telemedicine to connect with and treat its patients, MediGuide recognized it was time to expand its service offerings. MySpecialistMD is a multi-specialty telemedicine service who bring world renowned, US board certified physicians to its members via their phone, laptop, iPad or any devise that is connected to the internet. Just like our Medical Second Opinion (MSO) programs, this new service is exclusively open to our valued members.
For less than $1.00 US a month, our members can gain access to this invaluable service offering which also includes our remote MSO service. Members will pay a small access fee, usually via the insurance premiums, and a consultation fee based on type of consultation provided. The consultation fee can either be an out of pocket expense for the member, or it can be an insured item depending on the underlaying insurance program.
MySpecialistMD by MediGuide provides an unprecedented, all-inclusive medical support experience for members, unlike any other second opinion, and we are thrilled to be leading the industry with this unique service combination for our members. What makes this partnership most exciting are the tremendous combined benefits MediGuide and MySpecialistMD can now offer their customer base including:

MediGuide International currently services millions of member lives in 40+ countries across the globe with its MSO services. This allows members access to the best medical information available for their specific condition. The MediGuide experience is like no other MSO in its space, since its process allows for a holistic review of medical information by a team of physicians versus a single ‘expert’ physician review. In addition to MySpecialistMD, MediGuide International has also launched its LifeLink Insurance program, supported globally by SwissRe. Recently, MediGuide launched a new service for members seeking medical treatment abroad without insurance: Navigator. Insurance companies dealing with MediGuide will be able to either insure the new program or offer it on an access basis to its insured.
