Medical Concierge Service - Treatment within the USA
Unique medical service - Whether you are seeking care in a local facility or in a location you are not familiar with, the quality of the care you are receiving is a primary concern. Our Medical Concierge Service is designed to provide you critical information on provider ratings, treatment outcome and cost of care prior to receiving medical treatment. Your personal Medical Concierge will review your specific non-emergency medical condition and provide you with complete information on provider ratings, past outcomes and general costs - all in the area where you are planning treatment.
Medical Concierge Service helps maximise your outcome when seeking medical care within the USA, with the added bonus that you can receive a reduction in your Annual Excess for receiving eligible treatment through a USA Medical Concierge offered provider - whether or not they are in the USA PPO Network. This level of individualised service is unmatched in the international arena.
