Medical Tourism India

Medical Treatment + India Vacation = Save Money for many . . .

Medical costs are soaring in countries like the United States. There are also considerable delays in getting treatment in some western countries due to financial and hospital backlogs of patients waiting for medical procedures. This is the reason medical tourism is a concept becoming popular day by day. Time magazine in May 2006 published an article on medical tourism and brought to the attention of its worldwide readers the increasing popularity of medical tourism. Even insurance companies in the United States are checking out the concept of medical tourism and some medical insurance companies are giving their insureds the option of getting medical procedures done abroad. Two countries that are gaining popularity for medical tourism are India and Thailand. Of course many US residents who live in border states may probably travel to neighboring countries such as Mexico for dental treatment in an effort to save money! The benefits of medical tourism are shared by all concerned. The insurance companies can see the cost savings and no doubt will offer incentives to their insured to agree to medical procedures abroad where savings are tremendous and medical facilities gradually comparable to western standards.

Medical Travel Planners

Companies have now sprung up that call themselves medical travel planners. They find the physicians, hospitals and make all travel arrangements for patients to travel to India. Medical travel planning companies provide services that include just about every aspect of service one can think of when going abroad for medical surgery, such as making travel arrangements, finding the physicians, meeting the patients on arrival and providing just about every service that may be required such as local transportation, hotels and so on.

Medical Cost Savings

How much can patients save compared to costs in the United States of America.? A lot of money. For example CNN ran a story on March 27, 2009 with the title ‘Lower costs lure U.S. patients abroad  for treatment’ about a US patient who was quoted $175,000 for a procedure in the United States that she could never have afforded as she had no medical insurance. She finally, via the Internet found a hospital in New Delhi, India and got her heart surgery done there. The surgery, airfare, a holiday tour of some popular tourist attractions near Delhi cost her just $10,000. Many foreigners who need medical surgery and cannot afford the ridiculously high costs in their home countries are traveling overseas to get medical care. As word spreads of the first class medical facilities now available abroad many more may consider traveling overseas for treatments.

Some benefits of medical tourism are:

Insurance companies save money. Costs of comparable medical procedures in countries like India are far cheaper than western countries. Even after adding the costs of airfare and accommodation. The final price is far cheaper than what similar treatments cost in countries like the United States. Dental treatment abroad especially in countries like India where they have far too many dentists can really save you big money. In some western countries, for example Canada where medical insurance is provided to all legal residents by the government of Canada because of a shortage of doctors and hospital beds. Patients have no choice but to wait for medical operations. Some times waits can be for many months. Patients who opt for medical treatments aboard in countries like India, need not wait for treatments. Patients may get a paid holiday with a family member. All travel expenses including accommodation are paid by the insurance carriers of patients. Some insurance companies share the savings with their patients. Hospitals in India sometimes also provide help with visas, travel arrangements and accommodations. Some hospitals in India now even have some sort of link advertising medical tourism on their websites. India offers one of the cheapest pricing options of treatment. India is an excellent tourism choice with lots to see and do and offers visitors world class hospitals and facilities. Medical tourists face no waiting lists and doctors have excellent credentials. Many doctors infact have trained in western countries. One of the main advantages of medical tourism in India is that the English language is freely spoken and understood in India.

Dental Treatments in India

Dental treatments in India are also becoming popular with tourists. The cost of dental treatments has also soared in western countries. While medical treatments may be covered for some by insurance companies or employers in western countries. Many foreigners find themselves without any dental treatment insurance and have no choice but to pay for their dental treatments themselves.  The option of dental treatments in countries like India for many hence is a attractive option. Especially for those foreign residents who plan on a visit to India anyway for a holiday. Some foreign residents even may be changing holiday destinations to get the benefit of getting dental work done during their holiday in India. Hospitals and dental clinics have realized the potential of medical tourism and many have upgraded their facilities to attract tourists and get a share of this growing market. For the millions of Indian nationals settled abroad dental treatments in India is a practical option. Have a holiday with your loved ones and save money on your dental work at the same time.  I can vouch for this, I just returned from India and during my visit had my dental work done there!
