Few Important Information About Medical Tourism

Before visiting any other country or region as a tourist, it is very important to understand how you will cater for your medical needs in case they come up in the middle of your visitation. Many people do not understand what medical tourism is and hence have fallen preys of dishonest medical services providers who are after making illegal money. By understanding medical tourism, you will know where to get reliable medical services at affordable rates. Therefore what you have to know is the procedure to be followed to get these efficient medical services.

What is the meaning of medical tourism?

Medical tourism is the process of visiting other countries so as to benefit from their medical, dental care and cosmetic services. It is not strange to find thousands of people travelling to other countries to seek medical services. Basically there are different reasons as to why people travel to other countries for medical attention among them being: the efficiency of modern transportation systems which makes movement easier, the affordable cost of medical services in the destination countries, the high quality services provided in terms of expertise and advanced medical equipment, and the opportunity of enjoying a vacation in the developed countries as one recovers.

Is it mandatory to talk to my doctor first?

It is a definite yes. It is very crucial to consult your local doctor first and discus the facts about your medical situation and the reasons as to why you are going to seek medical services from another country. Your local doctor can help you through the process by recommending some of the medical agencies or countries that have the capability to provide the best solution for your problem. Although your local doctor may have a different though on why you want to seek medical attention from a foreign country, you should convince the doctor that you are only looking for help from hospitals and professional doctors recognized internationally.

Why is it that medical care is very costly in first world countries?

The main reason for expensive medical care in first world countries is that the cost is majorly influenced by labor overhead, insurance bonds and administrative fees. The World Health Organization (WHO) has shown that in a country like the United States, labor overhead is very high compared with that of third world countries. For instance, 70% of the total cost is linked to labor. But patients who travel to the first world countries to seek medical services can pay only 10% to 40% of the cost they are charged in the States, which makes it a bit affordable.

What are the types of treatments I can receive?

Generally, you can get any type of treatment from medical tourism provided the hospital you are going to have sufficient facilities and staff to undertake the treatment. On the other hand, the most common treatments done to medical tourists include eye surgery, cosmetic surgery, heart surgery, organ transplant and dental work. Other common procedures include herbal medicine, physical therapy, psychotherapy, cancer treatment, weight reduction surgery, orthopaedics and alternative medicine.

What are the best countries to visit as a medical tourist?

Currently, there are more than 50 countries around the world that offer high quality medical treatment and other supportive services. Among them include Germany, Israel, Thailand, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong. These countries are on the list of the best because they have the most advanced equipment and facilities, recognized with the biggest medical agencies plus English-speaking and well-trained staff. They also have numerous incredible sites and attractions that fascinate medical tourists.
