Ask the Doctor
Free Medical Advice sponsored by
Got an ache or pain? Have a question about a prescription or over-the-counter drug? Looking for some FREE medical advice?
Question:
Dear doctor, Do you think that your clinic could post its price list on your Web site. It would be quite useful to be able to quickly compare your services and prices to those of your main competitors (EMC, AMC, IMC). Also, if you take ona patient, what sort of liability do you assume and what sort of malpractice insurance coverage does your clinic have? Is the clinic in Moscow a completely stand-alone entity, or the subsidiary of a parent based in a developed country? These probably aren't typical questions for you, but since your "Ask the doctor" service is basically a marketing tool, I think it's fair to pose them and get clear answers. Thanks in advance.

Answer:
Let me answer your questions in the order you have written; A sampling of the SOS Moscow Clinic price list is available from the clinic reception. If it is not convenient for you to make a special trip we will be happy to fax/email you a copy. If you let us know your return email address/phone number we will respond promptly. Also if you are travelling abroad, we can provide information on the services available at the other 20 International SOS clinics worldwide and information on the wider range of medical and security assistance services available to SOS members. Regarding your question on Medical liability, International SOS holds group medical malpractice insurance for all its 2500 medical employees worldwide. This insurance provides coverage up to US$10 Million per event and in the aggregrate. The SOS Clinic Moscow operates in Russia via a fully registered Russian company with all appropriate Russian medical licenses. The SOS Moscow Clinic is owned by the International SOS Group which has its European headquaters in London, UK. best regards Martin Dennett
