The MyCare Insurance Program offers Canadians an unprecedented health insurance benefit featuring medical expertise from Mayo Clinic. When diagnosed with a serious illness or major orthopedic concern, MyCare offers you and your family access to a timely first or second medical opinion from Mayo Clinic, and if required, additional diagnostics or on-site care or treatment at a Mayo Clinic campus (Phoenix/Scottsdale, AZ; Rochester, MN; Jacksonville, FL).

† MyCare is underwritten by certain International Insurers.

The MyCare Insurance Program provides the following benefits:

  • Formal Medical Review: Mayo Clinic will confirm a diagnosis obtained in Canada or will assist in making a diagnosis when no definitive diagnosis has been made. Mayo Clinic physicians/experts will review your records and provide a formal opinion;
  • Additional Diagnostic Testing: Receive additional testing, such as an MRI or CAT scan, as deemed necessary by Mayo Clinic to confirm or arrive at a diagnosis, performed within Canada or at a Mayo Clinic campus in the U.S., depending on the situation;
  • Access to Treatment: Obtain treatment for the diagnosed condition at a Mayo Clinic campus (Phoenix/Scottsdale, AZ; Rochester, MN; or Jacksonville, FL);
  • Consultation for Difficult to Diagnose Health Issues: When no firm diagnosis has been achieved in Canada within 60 days of the first specialist appointment, you will receive consultation from Mayo Clinic.

Policy holders under the MyCare Insurance Program will not be required to seek treatment options in Canada regardless of whether the recommended treatment is available in Canada.

The MyCare Insurance Program introduces you to a lasting relationship with Mayo Clinic, providing peace of mind that in the event of a serious illness you and your loved ones have access to efficient and compassionate world-class medical care. Medical opinion, collaborative consultation and treatment at Mayo Clinic are covered through the MyCare Insurance Program in cases of serious illness and major orthopedic diagnosis.

Complementing the Canadian Health Care System

Canadian Maple Leaf

The MyCare Insurance Program complements the Canadian Health Care System by delivering services in two stages: (1) an eConsult delivered by a Mayo Clinic physician to either confirm a diagnosis delivered in Canada or render a diagnosis when one has not been achieved, and (2) treatment at a Mayo Clinic facility, if deemed appropriate.

In the event that you or your family receive a diagnosis of a serious illness or must undergo major surgery, or if your doctors are unable to arrive at a diagnosis for your condition within 60 days, you will contact the program claims coordinator. The claims coordinator, operating as a case manager for MyCare, will initiate an eConsult with Mayo Clinic, whereby:

  1. You will be instructed to gather the relevant medical information from your medical provider(s) in Canada.
  2. MyCare’s medical director will forward these documents to Mayo Clinic and request a medical opinion from the appropriate Mayo Clinic physician(s).
  3. You will be offered a retest of pathology, if needed.
  4. An analysis report, including a review of your current treatment protocol or recommended surgical procedure, will be forwarded to you for review, and if you so designate, to your Canadian doctor as well.
  5. If the analysis contains additional diagnostic testing and treatment recommendation, you’ll receive testing at the nearest approved diagnostic facility and the recommended treatment will commence, either in Canada or at the appropriate Mayo Clinic facility.
