Many Americans are showing great interest in medical treatments and therapies in foreign countries. For the last few years, it has become a reasonable choice and a sensible option for many. Sadly, the goal of improving their health and general well being or that of their loved ones is unaffordable for many.
Rising Popularity of Medical Tourism
This sudden rise in the amount of medical tourists is understandable, especially if one keeps in mind the exponential increase in costs of medical treatments across the United States. It is estimated that in 2016 alone, 11 million people around the world travelled overseas in search of medical procedures that would have been too costly to obtain had they done them in their home countries. From these 11 million, between 750.000 and 1.8 million were US citizens. The reason behind this, is that Americans can save anywhere from 20 to 80 percent on medical procedures alone if they do them in a foreign nation.
Popular Medical Tourism Destinations
Countries like Brazil, Costa Rica, Mexico, India and of course Thailand are heading the list of favourite destinations for many American citizens looking for an affordable way of improving their health. The rise in healthcare costs in the United States alone has moved many patients away from treatment centers in America. It has also been a driving force behind medical tourism for all types of conditions. Not only that, it is expected that the number of American patients traveling abroad is to grow even more, as Congress is considering removing the Affordable Care Act, leaving roughly 20 million people without any kind of insurance.
