Mayo Clinic has announced a new health insurance option that will allow Canadians to access Mayo Clinic expertise and care. The product, called MyCare, is provided by Assured Diagnosis, Inc. (ADI) of Canada, and will be available April 15, 2011. MyCare policyholders will have access to Mayo Clinic expertise delivered remotely via an electronic second opinion consultation (eConsults), as well as on-site care at Mayo Clinic campuses in Jacksonville, Fla., Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., and Rochester.
“Mayo Clinic has provided hope and solutions for tens of thousands of Canadians over the past 90 years. We look forward to the opportunity to extend our expertise to Canadians through the MyCare offering,” says David Hayes, M.D., medical director of the International Office at Mayo Clinic. “Our Canadian patients, just like those from the U.S. and other parts of the world, tell us that they appreciate our team approach, the breadth of our knowledge and expertise, and our efficiency. They entrust their care to Mayo Clinic because they are able to find answers and peace of mind. It is our honor and privilege to provide timely, high-quality care to over a half million patients each year, in virtually every subspecialty of medicine.”
