Care+: Expert Second Opinions
CIGNA & CMC has a partnership with the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic to provide comprehensive expert online medical second opinions to you and covered family members, should someone receive a life-threatening or life-altering diagnosis. The confidential, easy-to-use service removes geographic barriers and connects you to trusted health care advice during a time of personal health crisis.
The Cleveland Clinic has been one of America’s most respected medical referral institutions for more than 85 years. Remote access to a trusted team of physicians can help you make more confident decisions about your health care.
Each opinion is provided by a Cleveland Clinic doctor who specializes in the condition and provides a review of the diagnosis and prescribed medical treatment. Support from the Cleveland Clinic, in addition to the second opinion, includes a telephone consultation and secure email communication with a nurse. You can also view the biography of the lead physician assigned to your case and ask questions related to the diagnosis through the Cleveland Clinic’s secure website. The Cleveland Clinic’s secure website also allows you to monitor the status of your second opinion and, upon request, to send a copy of the opinion to your primary doctor.
