Statistically medical tourism pros will out weigh the cons otherwise we wouldn’t see such a rapid growth in popularity.
Below are the pros and cons of medical tourism. After you read the pros and cons, I’ll show you how to easily turn your cons into pros.
Lets start with the bad.
- Most likely don’t have a previous relationship with your doctor
- Purchasing airfare
- Arranging hotel stay
- Away from home (could be a Pro)
- Unfamiliar country
- Finding the best care
- Finding a reputable provider
- Getting your money there
- Not economical for smaller problems (colds, allergies, ect)
- Up to 97% savings over USA healthcare costs
- Better care
- Dedicated medical teams
- New procedures
- Procedures not available in the U.S.
- Better facilities
- Relaxing recovery
- Vacation aspect
You can get rid of all the cons in one easy swoop. A Medical Tourism Connection Membership solves all of these problems. With a membership you are searching the best care providers, you see their full profile and can develop relationships with them before you go. With the travel warranty add on and journey assistance you fly for free and hotels are a cinch as they are already in the system. They are a medical tourism search engine and booking engine so you are covered there as well. When it comes to getting your money there, they have a no cost solution as well. If you are new to medical tourism or want to learn more about the industry, Neil Fettig, the father of medical tourism, holds medical tourism seminars online that I highly recommend.
