Healthbase Interviews Beauty From Afar Author on Medical Tourism

Outsourcing is not just about manufacturing and call centers and computer programming and financial services – today, people are actually outsourcing their own medical care.

Everybody who experiences medical tourism raves about the low cost high quality health care phenomenon. For Jeff Schult, it resulted in a book. In a recent interview with Healthbase.com, a Boston-based medical tourism provider, Jeff Schult, the author of one of the top selling books on medical tourism, Beauty From Afar, talked about his personal dental experience in Costa Rica, his views on medical tourism, and the changing American healthcare system among many other things.

Today, more and more Americans are taking advantage of the many benefits of medical tourism and seeking the needed healthcare treatment without spending their life savings. According to Jeff Schult, “I think awareness of medical tourism, though still low, is growing rapidly. More people are going all the time. And these days, it’s getting more and more favorable treatment in the media. That people go overseas for health care no longer shocks news reporters, as it did only a few years ago.”

Comparing the quality of care overseas with that in the US, he said, “I could not have had a better experience or result in the United States than I had in Costa Rica. The restoration of my upper teeth was done superbly in Costa Rica at a cost of a half to a third of what it would have cost in the U.S. The facilities were outstanding, as were my dentists. Without medical tourism, having a great smile in my 50s was going to be just a fantasy.”
