Overseas Medical Tourism

A McKinsey & Company report revealed that the core reasons for medical Tourism:

Best technology regardless of cost (est. 40%) This may include traditional or disallowed treatments ( IVF)(Stem Cell Therapy)

High quality and lower costs for medically necessary procedures/treatments (est. 30%) An uninsured or underinsured person may seek reasonable cost alternatives

Quick access to medical care (est. 15%) Specific treatments are not available in the home country, or there is a significant waiting list for an elective procedure

Lower costs for discretionary medical care

US Healthcare System Expensive, Uneven and inefficient:

Americans Die earlier and receive less care than residents of other nations, they pay far more for healthcare per person-more than $8000 -than do citizens of any of the other countries.

One good thing about US System ,they delivers first class cancer care, with the world's highest survival rates for breast cancer though recently Japanese beating them with Cancer research and technology.

and American Doctors says they are not paid fairly for their work.
