Online Second Opinions

 

For patients too sick to travel, or living outside the US, consider getting a second opinion from a major sarcoma center online.  Second opinions through a sarcoma center’s online services is not typically covered by insurance and typically cost $700 – $800.  However, the out-of-pocket cost may off-set the travel and lodging expenses, let alone the convenience. Each center has different policies and instructions, so please read the details carefully.
