Second Medical Opinion
Not every doctor will have the same opinion when it comes to diagnosis and treatments options. A doctor’s opinion is guided by several factors such as available technology, their education and their own experience dealing with a particular health condition.
Many patients have been in the difficult position of querying their doctor’s medical opinion. And in many cases, it is only natural to have medical questions like:
- Is my diagnosis correct?
- Is my treatment plan correct?
- Do I need this surgery or do I have other options?
At these times it is valuable to have access to an affordable, unbiased second opinion so that patients can explore alternative options and gain complete confidence in their healthcare.
How Does Second Medical Opinion Work?
With the Second Opinion service from our team of Doctors Online, members have the opportunity to request medical questions via the Internet, at any time and from anywhere in the world. The second opinion consults enable patients to make better-informed decisions about their health. They also provide a smart and inexpensive way to improve health and treatment outcomes.
Our team provides its members with access to our network of over 1,7 world-class healthcare specialists. Our physicians are available for medical questions, consultations and second opinions within 48 hours of a member’s request (assuming the patient’s Personal Health Record is up-to-date). Our specialists perform a thorough, evidence-based review of the member’s health history, meaning a second opinion from our team is completely independent and impartial.
To get started, simply submit a request for a consult. Our Medical Executive will review your file and forward it on to a committee of specialists that best serve your case.

Medical auditing entails conducting internal or external reviews of coding accuracy, policies, and procedures to ensure you are running an efficient and hopefully liability-free operation.
There are many reasons to perform medical audits:
- To determine outliers before large payers find them in their claims software and request an internal audit be done.
- To protect against fraudulent claims and billing activity
- To reveal whether there is variation from national averages due to inappropriate coding, insufficient documentation, or lost revenue.
- To help identify and correct problem areas before insurance or government payers challenge inappropriate coding
- To help prevent governmental investigational auditors like recovery audit contractors (RACs) or zone program integrity contractors (ZPICs) from knocking at your door
- To remedy undercoding, bad unbundling habits, and code overuse and to bill appropriately for documented procedures
- To identify reimbursement deficiencies and opportunities for appropriate reimbursement.
- To stop the use of outdated or incorrect codes for procedures
- To verify ICD-10-CM and electronic health record (EHR) meaningful use readiness
