Has your healthcare provider suggested surgery or a major medical test? You might want to consider getting a second opinion if you or a covered dependent:

  • Have an unclear diagnosis
  • Are diagnosed with a rare or life-threatening condition
  • Are recommended for a treatment that is risky, controversial or experimental
  • Have a choice of treatments or medical tests that vary widely in cost
  • Are not responding to a treatment as expected

Starmark® self-funded major medical plan designs include Grand Rounds®, a vendor offering medical second opinions to patients from expert physicians specializing in the area of need. The service is available at no cost, without any required travel and is delivered over the phone or online for convenient anywhere, anytime access.
