What is 2nd.MD? (Watch the Video)
Chancellor John Sharp announced a new medical benefit to make it easier and quicker for eligible A&M System employees, retirees, and covered dependents to obtain a second medical opinion at no additional cost.
This free benefit will give access to an optional second opinion from some of the finest doctors in the country. The Texas A&M University System has partnered with 2nd.MD, a Houston-based company, to provide access to more than 300 nationally-recognized, board-certified medical specialists from institutions such as the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins and the Cleveland Clinic. The Texas A&M System is the first public entity in the nation to offer 2nd.MD to its employees, retirees, and their dependents.
The specialists can offer a second opinion, whether it’s for a recent diagnosis, when considering surgery or evaluating a change in treatment or medication, usually within 72 hours of contacting 2nd MD. After a specialist reviews a patient’s health records, the patient can consult the doctor at an agreed upon time either by phone or video conference.
Employees, retirees and their dependents covered by the A&M Care Plan, J Plan or 65 Plus Plan are eligible for this benefit. More details are available in Chancellor Sharp’s letter, along with this set of frequently asked questions.
