BHCG chooses Best Doctors as its Informed Decision Making initiative vendor
After a rigorous selection process, the BHCG chose Best Doctors, Inc. of Boston, MA as its Informed Decision Making vendor in March. Founded in 1989 by doctors affiliated with Harvard Medical School, Best Doctors helps individuals and their treating physicians make sure they have the right diagnosis and the right treatment plan. More than a traditional second opinion, Best Doctors delivers a comprehensive evaluation of a member’s medical condition while promoting consumerism, reducing unnecessary utilization and yielding better outcomes.

BHCG staff will be reaching out to all self-insured members to discuss individual member implementation plans. In addition, Humana has committed that all of their fully insured HPN customers will have access to the program at no additional cost. It is anticipated fully insured and self-insured employers will be able to implement the program beginning September 1.

As integration and implementation plans are developed, look for more information about this unique program made available exclusively for BHCG member employers.
