UHC Second Opinion Service 2nd MD

The City of Milwaukee offers a second opinion service (2nd.MD) through the UnitedHealthcare (UHC) health plan. 2nd.MD is a virtual expert medical consultation and navigation service available at no cost to employees and family members enrolled in the City’s UHC health plan. 2nd.MD connects members with a board-certified, nationally recognized specialist for a medical consultation via phone or video to provide a second opinion at no cost regarding medical issues such as:

Disease, cancer or chronic condition

Surgery or procedure

Medications and treatment plans


Why is UHC Calling?

It may seem unusual, but the next time your phone's caller ID reads "UnitedHealthcare," there'sa  good chance it's an offer to connect you with information to help you manage or improve your health.  These are not sales calls, rather, these calls are used to extend invitations to members including wellness coaching, disease management and pregnancy resources.

Please wait while we gather your results.
