Second Opinion for Kids from Best Doctors®

At Vhi we believe in peace of mind and being there when you need us. We have partnered with Best Doctors to provide our members with a Second Opinion service for children.

What is it?

Best Doctors' unique service enables members to have their medical case assessed by a world-class physician who will provide them with a expert second opinion.

The service is available as part of your health insurance plan and is for children up to the age of 18 years. The service is best used for any condition that is adversely affecting your child's quality of life.

How does it work?

Once you have decided you would like a second opinion you should call Vhi NurseLine 24/7.

  • The NurseLine team will talk to you about your concerns and determine if you are eligible for the Second Opinion service.
  • If you are suitable, and with your consent, we will send your details to the Best Doctors team. A specialist from Best Doctors will contact you to learn about your child's diagnosis and medical history.
  • The Best Doctors team will prepare an in-depth summary of your child's situation to be sent to the Best Doctors expert.
  • The selected Best Doctors expert will carry out an in depth review of your child's case and prepare a detailed report.
  • You will receive a detailed conclusion from the specialist which may confirm the initial diagnosis or offer an alternative perspective for consideration. From here you can discuss these options with the specialist and request support as needed.
