Outsourcing your health

 

Kevin Miller, 45, a native of Eunice, Louisiana, has become a part of a stream of American patients taking full advantage of medical treatment outside the US. Mr. Miller is a self-employed and uninsured chiropractor who was in an auto accident several years back. Upon learning that he needed to pay around $90,000 for surgery and treatments, he took his chances over the Internet to look for other options. He then found out about Bumrungrad Hospital in Bangkok, which is often likened to a luxurious hotel. Ignoring his doctors’ objections, Miller made an appointment and had his procedure in the Bangkok hospital with a US-trained surgeon who repaired his herniated disk for just $10,000.

I wouldn’t hesitate to come back for another procedure,” Miller said.

Over the years, the medical travel available in India, Thailand, Singapore, and other countries has attracted a notable number of American patients. My Medical Travel Guide shows that there were about 500,000 and 750,000 Americans who sought medical treatment abroad in 2005 and 2007, respectively, and these numbers could increase to 7.5 million by 2018. Here are the reasons why medical travel is on the rise:

• Incredible savings

• Sophisticated surgeries

• Luxurious accommodations and world-class facilities

• Travel opportunities

• Access to immediate service without the hassles of “wait lists”

• Professional expertise of surgeons and nurses

• Longer and convenient recuperation periods

• Personalized care
