Frequently Asked Questions

I’d like to receive an online second opinion from Net Medical. What are the next steps?

You can initiate a second opinion online through our website at any time. To begin, please create an account.

 

Alternatively, you can email secondopinion@netmedical.com. A member of our care team will help guide you through the process of starting a second opinion.

 

What is the cost of a Net Medical Online Second Opinion?

The virtual second opinion fee is contingent on consult type.  Generally, the fee is inclusive of medical record collection, a second opinion delivered verbally and in writing from a Net Medical specialist, and guidance throughout the process from your personal care team. In rare cases, the complexity of the case will require our specialist to consult with other colleagues, including radiologists and pathologists. In these cases, an additional fee may be charged.

 

Will my insurance cover the cost of a Net Medical Online Second Opinion?

Currently, most health plans do not cover online second opinions or consultations, so patients are responsible for the cost of the second opinion. Net Medical cannot file a claim with your insurance carrier, nor can we provide a procedure (CPT) code for this service.

 

What is the timeline to receive an online second opinion?

We do our best to deliver your written second opinion as quickly as possible. However, the timeline can be variable based on the amount of time it takes to obtain your medical records and the availability of the specialist best suited to review your case. Typically, it takes 5 to 7 business days after your records have been collected to receive your written online second opinion.

 

Do I need to send my medical records?

If all of your care has taken place within the United States, you’ll only need to provide the names and locations of physicians who have seen you previously; our Care Team will then collect your records. If you live in the United States and already have all of your medical records on hand, you can send them directly to our Care Team, which will decrease the time it takes for your written opinion to be delivered.

 

If you reside or have resided outside of the United States and have medical records from outside of the United States, yes. You will need to send your medical records to us. Once you initiate a case, you may upload medical records by navigating to the message center tab and clicking on “Attach Document”. If you have difficulty, our Care Coordinators can help you upload records. Reach out to your personal care coordinator via the message center in your case, or email secondopinion@netmedical.com.

 

What if my medical records are not in English?

If you need assistance translating medical records, Net Medical has translation services that may be available to you. For more information, please provide your name, phone number, email address and the language your documents are currently in, to secondopinion@netmedical.com for adult cases. Please note that additional fees may apply.

 

Who chooses the physician providing my second opinion?

After carefully reviewing your second opinion request and medical records, our experienced team will determine which Net Medical physician specialist is most appropriate to handle your online second opinion case. You may request a particular physician, and Grand Rounds as well as Net Medical will try to accommodate that request, but we cannot guarantee that specialist will be assigned to your case.

What should I expect to receive once my second opinion is complete?

You will receive a notification when your second opinion has been completed and is ready for your review.
