How do your services affect my relationship with my present doctors?

How will MyAbroadMDs help in case of an urgent medical crisis?

In addition to providing contact information for English-speaking medical providers and practices, we also provide information on nearby hospital facilities and pharmacies in the event of an emergency. We suggest using your PIMS when speaking with a doctor.

Where do you provide your services?

MyAbroadMDs currently offers its services in over 150 countries and aims to be the go-to source for locating English-speaking doctors and medical resources worldwide.

Can you help me over the phone?

Once you are a member, you can contact us via chat if you need assistance with technical difficulties via text. Members can communicate with us via our membership portal.

Can I use insurance with MyAbroadMDs?

As of yet, MyAbroadMDs does not directly work with any insurance companies. It is best to check with your insurance company to understand your policy and what it covers. We recommend keeping a copy of your insurance card on your phone in the PIMS system that comes with your membership. Some clinics may require an upfront fee, but you may be able to get reimbursed by submitting a claim to your insurance.

How can I be sure the physicians included are licensed MDs?

Our Curated Doctor Locator employs a multilayered vetting process. While all physicians listed identify as licensed English-speaking MDs, our team has also reached out to many of them, gathering insights through surveys or direct phone interviews. User feedback may further guide your selection. However, it's crucial to understand that inclusion in our list does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation by MyAbroadMDs. The sequence in which the doctors are presented holds no significance. Our primary goal is to equip you with information, enabling you to make informed decisions about your health.
