Best Doctors® Insurance Global Medical Care™

You’ve probably heard of Best Doctors® – widely known for medical advisory services and second opinions.

Best Doctors® has been available to individuals and as an add-on for group benefit plans for several years.

My initial opinion of their services was lukewarm: “Brilliant idea, amazing affiliations, people truly need help navigating the healthcare system. BUT…with no money accompanying their advice, the best they can do is confirm or make a diagnosis and suggest a treatment plan. Too bad, so sad: you are sick, here’s how/where to get fixed, now go find the money.”

In the absence of a financial (insurance) component, unfunded advice doesn’t go very far when sick people need expensive medical treatments.

Best Doctors®  upped their game in Canada with the introduction of Best Doctors® Insurance Global Medical Care™ (GMC), a unique and comprehensive insurance product that combines expert medical advice AND money!

Coverage ranges from $500,000 to $5,000,000 with several deductible options available.

There’s no waiting period and no requirement for a doctor’s referral.

Underwritten by Lloyds of London, it provides up to $5 million of lifetime funding for the finest medical care ANYWHERE in the world, including private clinics in Canada.

Medical conditions covered range from hip and knee replacement to heart surgery and cancer treatments. Elective surgeries are covered too.

Best Doctors® Insurance Global Medical Care™ provides access and pays directly for the tests, procedures, scans, specialists, medications and surgeries that may not be available in Canada. It is not a reimbursement policy.

A healthcare ‘concierge’ schedules doctors’ appointments, arranges travel and lodging and makes life easier.

Premiums can be paid with a credit card (attention: points collectors) and you can use your Health Spending Account (HSA) to deduct the entire premium cost from income instead of paying with after-tax dollars.

This is a great product and a perfect complement to Critical Illness Insurance (CI).

CI pays you up to $2 million if you get sick and this Best Doctors® Insurance Global Medical Care™ product pays up to $5 million (lifetime) for medical treatments and helps patients navigate the system – a powerful combination indeed.

In my opinion, this is the best insurance product to come along in years…and it is available now for groups with a minimum of 5 lives, including employee spouses and dependent children.


I bought a policy myself.

No medical evidence is required for groups of 5 or more employees.

What Our Clients say

"Mark has been helping me with Life Insurance and Critical Illness for over 10 years. Like most people, I find it difficult to deal with these issues and take care of them properly to make sure that my family is safe and secure in the future. My previous experience with life insurance salesmen left me feeling pretty cynical and fearful. Enter Mark Halpern - He has an amazing array of innovative products, he explains things so that you really get it, and absolutely no pressure - I kid you not. On one occasion, he even advised against purchasing a product! Look, the last thing I want to sound like is an infomercial, but for Mark, I will make an exception. Life insurance is critical and you want to deal someone who has knowledge, integrity, and compassion. Mark Halpern is the man."

"I heard Mark interviewed on Money Talks radio with Jerry White and was intrigued by the critical illness insurance he specializes in. We set up an appointment in his office and I approached our meeting as a skeptical accountant who doesn't like to be sold insurance. Mark surprised me. He was very thorough and covered all the bases. He looked at my total picture and didn't isolate any parts. He put together a plan for me based on our discussions that would take care of me in my life and he followed up again on each item at subsequent meetings. I purchased a critical illness insurance policy and health benefits and will consider long term care insurance and life insurance with Mark in the New Year. Mark has many strengths. The one that impressed me the most was his ability to recognize my lifestyle as a single woman with no dependants. He designed the right plan to fit. I highly recommend Mark to anyone who requires a truly caring, sincere and professional advisor."
Ms Susan Jackson
Chartered Accountant

"I was referred to Mark by my father who has done business with him for several years. As a director of a TSX listed company and now as a new father, I had to look into insurance for me and my family for the first time. I was unfamiliar with the different insurance products available and needed someone that I could trust to guide me and my family through the process. Mark did a professional job of explaining the potential risks in life and educated us on all of our options. His recommendations were appreciated and we know that he delivered the best possible programs for us now and to build on in the future. I recommend Mark to anyone who needs a trustworthy advisor to guide them as they grow their business and personal life."

"Gord Stellick, a close friend since high school, referred me to Mark. I am a busy successful business owner, with virtually no time to take care of my personal matters that far too often take a back seat. It was fortunate for me and my family that I made the time to meet with Mark. He was sincere, straight forward and shared his extensive knowledge and wisdom with me on the things that I need to protect me and my family. I liked his no pressure approach. Even more, I liked his persistence in making sure that I got things done. If he didn't stay on top of me, my family and I would still be at risk if disaster struck. Meeting with Mark gave me peace of mind. It was valuable time worth spending. "
