LONGWOOD, Fla. (April 16, 2019) – Insurance Office of America (IOA) and MORE Health, a medical second opinion and collaborative diagnosis service, announced their partnership in offering an indispensable medical opportunity for employees who are enrolled in medical plans.
Employees of IOA clients can now receive easy access to second opinions when faced with decisions regarding serious, life-changing illnesses. MORE Health connects each patient’s attending doctors with one of its exceptional physician specialists to jointly develop a comprehensive and collaborative response to a diagnosis together with the optimum treatment plan. IOA is excited to partner with MORE Health to provide this phenomenal service.
“This partnership couldn’t be more important for medical care,” said Chris Labrecque, president of the IOA Employee Benefits Division. “When people receive the diagnosis of a serious illness, it can be paralyzing. This additional service offering brings their care to a whole new level. It gives them the comfort of knowing they have an expert dedicated solely to their best outcome. That is exciting.”
Not only a second opinion service, MORE Health offers a collaborative approach to diagnosis to deliver the most effective treatment plan possible. Patients don’t have to worry about interpreting multiple diagnoses or sorting through competing treatment strategies, which provides peace of mind in critical situations. Sensitive to the need for a speedy resolution, MORE Health guarantees delivery of this service within five business days of receiving the relevant medical records.
In times of medical crisis, patients often must advocate for themselves and navigate the complicated medical system, insurance quagmire, and treatment options alone during a time of physical illness and emotional turbulence. MORE Health ensures that patients have the correct diagnosis, minimizing any chance of error and allows them to understand their best possible treatment options before making decisions on their path forward, which gives patients the peace of mind they so desperately need.
Tim Ballesteros, regional vice president of MORE Health explains, “The team at IOA sees the value of our service. They understand how we can help their clients prevent a bad first-dollar spend on unnecessary surgeries and misdiagnosed conditions. We look forward to working with IOA.”
