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

"I became aware of critical illness insurance this year and over the last number of months have investigated it for me and my family. I met with several agents. I had heard Mark's advertising on 680News and The Fan 590 and arranged a meeting in my office. I was very impressed with Mark and his knowledge of the policies that are available in the marketplace. Mark took the time to 'crash test' my life and provide me with some important recommendations that I was unaware of. He got my business. I have since referred Mark to the partners in my firm and recommend him highly to all busy professionals. "

"If I get sick and can't work, who will support my family? I spoke to Mark about this issue and he recommended critical illness insurance. It's a great investment that brings me peace of mind, knowing that my family and I will be taken care of. It's nice to know that someone's looking after me. Thank you Mark! "

"Selling residential real estate is a profession that requires me to be a great listener and a keen observer. Those qualities enabled me to become a member of the 100% club for RE/MAX and put me in the top 25% of realtors across the country. Mark Halpern is also a true professional and without a doubt is in the top club of any insurance professionals. He really listens. His sincerity and caring approach always impresses me and I would not ever even entertain the thought of using another insurance advisor for me or my family. Like me, Mark knows how to provide a client with the knowledge and wisdom they need to make an informed and unpressured decision."
