Perhaps you’ve heard about the tremendous price savings you can enjoy by traveling internationally to get your medical procedures, but at what overall expense?

In this article, we’ll consider 5 often-overlooked benefits that just may convince you it’s a great idea to travel abroad for your next medical procedure.

Price

Obviously, price is the main reason that initially grabs the attention of most first-time medical travelers. In fact, depending on the procedure, you can often expect savings of 60% to 80%.

But beyond price, foreign hospitals are much more willing to give accurate quotes upfront, prior to your surgery.

Try asking a US-based hospital what your final bill will be upfront. Typically, they’ll be evasive, vague, and avoid committing to a fixed price.

But in foreign hospitals, especially for minor procedures, they often offer set packages that cap the total cost.

This openness enables you to better compare your options across multiple countries.

But no matter what price a foreign clinic quotes, you can be assured that it will be much lower than a US or EU based hospital.

In short, you can expect far more honesty up-front and fewer “hidden costs” than what you find in US based hospitals.

 

Service

Beyond simple costs, you’ll also enjoy the superior service you’ll receive in foreign hospitals.

For example, tasks delegated to low-level medical assistants in the US and EU are usually performed by highly-trained registered nurses.

Instead of being told where to go to get your medications or to see another doctor, as a “medical tourist,” you can expect to be personally escorted.

That’s because while US and EU doctors are usually over-booked and forced to rush in and out, doctors in the major tourist hospitals have a much more reasonable work schedule and have a greater focus on spending quality time with each patient.

And if you need to stay overnight in the hospital, you’ll be amazed at the quality of the rooms and service.

In many cases, your room will seem more like a hotel suite than a traditional hospital room.

Quality

If you’re concerned that because something is cheaper then it must be a lower quality, nothing could be further from the truth with medical tourism.

While the doctors you may see in the US and EU are typically “average,” the doctors you’ll see in International medical hubs are often much better

Most are trained in the US or Western Europe and find that working in their home countries allows them to spend more time focused on developing their medical skills compared to the overworked and frenzied environment their US counterparts have to endure.

And in case you’re wondering, you can expect these International doctors to speak flawless English.

Availability

As a medical tourist, you’ll have greater access to key treatments that are often not available in your home country because of overly-strict government regulations (for example, stem cell based therapies).

Also, you’ll have quicker access to various common surgeries.

For example, in the US, you may have to wait months for your surgery. And in Canada or the UK, you may have to wait 1-3 years!

However, as a medical tourist, most medical procedures can be conducted within a few days of arriving.

Tourism

If you’re recovering from major surgery, why sit at home when you could be recovering in a bungalow at a beautiful beach while receiving your physical therapy or massage?

And if your family comes with you, many of the hospitals have travel agents that will arrange fun getaways to the beach and other adventures.

Moreover, given all the money you’ll save on the medical procedure, your vacation will still be cheaper than having the services done at home!

Summary

So, is Medical Tourism worth It? Yes!

Because not only can you get your medical procedure for the lowest price, but you’ll enjoy better service, better quality, immediate availability, and get to spend your time recovering in some of the most beautiful destinations in the world.
