Medical Tourism – Avoid Years of Unnecessary Debt
Americans – uninsured, underinsured and even insured – are taking advantage of the low cost, high quality healthcare overseas and saving tons
A Hip Resurfacing Surgery for only $7,500! When Kathie Thornton’s medical tourism facilitator, Healthbase, informed her she could get her hip replaced for only $7,500 she wondered if it was too good to be true. The only catch was she would have to travel to India for her treatment – a move which eventually saved her over 80% off the price tag in the US.
Aware of the potential benefits of medical tourism – quality as well as savings – Americans are traveling increasingly to countries like India, Thailand, Singapore and next door, to Mexico for medical care. Surgeries in the US that can lead to years of debt and even bankruptcy are available at a fraction of cost outside the US. But some questions still remain – “How can it be so much cheaper there?” and “Is the quality as good as at home?”
The high administrative and labor costs in the US help explain the high cost of medicine in the country. Other countries like India and Thailand that are on Healthbase’s network have much lower cost of labor and so are able to offer a cheaper price.
Quality is of utmost concern when it comes to healthcare. But when you log on to Healthbase.com, you see that the international hospitals on its network are internationally accredited with JCI, JCAHO or ISO certifications. This essentially means that the same organization that monitors service quality and care in US hospitals also watches over those that are abroad. So the quality of care delivered is either the same or superior when compared with that back home.
According to Kathie Thornton, a 53-year old Indiana-based medical tourist, “The quality of care is beyond excellence. On every level, from the first thing in the morning till bedtime, it’s personal and excellent.”
Medical tourism is the solution for those who have been waiting for a health miracle and for those who think good quality care is not affordable. For Kathie, it meant the beginning of a new life. Healthbase gave her hope when she had lost all hope. She exclaimed after her successful rehab, “I feel like this is the first day of the rest of my life. I went from having no quality of life back to a 100% life. The overall experience – I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
Medical tourism with Healthbase – It is your gateway to affordable healthcare.
