For some medical tourists, combining a vacation with the medical procedure is the main attraction. For most, though, holiday and leisure tourism is secondary.
History is replete with stories of travelers making trips to distant places for cure and improved health. The internet, which allows easy and quick communication, have popularized modern medical tourism. Nowadays, there are easy overseas travel options available that are affordable and convenient. JCI (Joint Commission International)-accredited hospitals with modern medical technology and availability of US-trained board certified physicians overseas have added more credibility to this phenomenon.
The future of medical tourism looks very bright with some countries registering about 30% annual growth in tourism related to healthcare. Most medical tourists come from the US, Europe, Canada, Japan, and the Middle East.Medical tourism is definitely a part of the next level of globalization.
Medical Tourism Corporation is an international medical
travel company based in the US. Our goal is to have satisfied and happy
medical tourists. Watch our online video on the right to see what we do.
Modern Surgery Centers Overseas & Top Physicians
Medical Tourism Corporation (MTC) works with some of the best hospitals in the world to give you affordable and quality medical care. These hospitals were screened based on international accreditations and associations (including some associations with prestigious medical institutions and hospitals in the US).
Medical Care Savings of 30 to 90%
MTC also works with some of the best physicians and surgeons, who undergo a screening process as well. Track records and credentials of each physician or surgeon are carefully studied.
Update and monitoring of its network of medical surgery centers and hospitals overseas are done on a regular basis to ensure that they are able to provide you a safe and satisfying medical and health tourism experience. Many of the staff and physicians in its network hospitals have their medical training, certification and experience from US and UK medical institutes.
When you opt to have a medical procedure done in one of MTC's network
hospitals, you save anywhere between 30-90% of the cost that you would
otherwise incur on the same procedure in the US or UK. For example,
knee surgery in one of its network hospitals in India costs US $ 7,000
whereas in the US it will cost $48,000. Hip resurfacing at one of its overseas
network location costs about US $8,000; in the US it would
be $55,000 and about 20,000 pounds in the UK.
If you are under-insured or un-insured and cannot afford medical care
in the US, these savings can mean a huge relief. It creates a big
difference in the quality of your life where earlier you had to choose
between living with the medical condition or getting it done in the
US and face financial calamity.
However, even if you are insured, but have high deductibles or limited coverage, medical tourism may still help you end up saving a lot of money and provide access to better service.
