Getting a medical diagnosis from your doctor can sometimes leave you feeling uneasy, sometimes we may want a second opinion to confirm a diagnosis or choose the right treatment.

Well now, getting that second opinion will be easy, convenient and free, thanks to our new benefit, 2nd.MD. Starting February 1, 2nd.MD can help all U.S. management employees with convenient virtual access to elite experts from top national institutions who are leading in research, clinical trials, and the next generation of health care.

If you are enrolled in a Verizon medical plan, you have access to 2nd.MD at no cost! Be sure to check back for more information, coming soon.

Pet Insurance

Verizon will soon offer a pet insurance benefit to help cover veterinary expenses for your furry companion.

All U.S. management employees will be eligible to purchase pet insurance through MetLife for their dog or cat at a discounted group rate. The coverage will include wellness vet visits, accidents, illness and more for your dogs and cats.

You’ll be able to enroll at any time during the year and you can continue using your current vet or any licensed veterinarian or emergency clinic in the U.S.
