Searching the globe for the best medical care

If an employee needs to see a specialist outside of Canada, the FIndBestCare team will coordinate a search of their global database of over 50,000 physicians in more than 450 specialties and subspecialties to find the expert(s) best suited to an employee’s needs. Once their research is complete, they provide the employee with a comprehensive physician-search report that includes biographies and credentials, consult fees (if available), necessary information to be completed for a referral and approximate wait times for the next available appointment.1 They provide up to three recommendations for leading physicians.

How this benefits employees
