An international medical advice company will be offering an advice service aimed at U.S. patients.

WorldCare Inc., Cambridge, Mass., a company that has been giving medical opinions to expats, now has started a new division, WorldCare North America, to offer recommendations to patients in North America.

The service could be of interest to U.S. consumers who have health savings accounts or other health accounts and now must take more responsibility for managing their care, WorldCare says.
