Americans Are Driving to Mexico for Dental Treatment While US tourists and most medical tourists cannot cross the US-Mexico border, dental tourism to Mexico is being treated as essential travel. In spite of the current COVID-19 threat, Americans are travelling there for treatment.
Patients Beyond Borders Announces Top 10 Cities for Medical Tourists in 2020 Newswise — America’s rising healthcare costs, in tandem with 82 million un- or underinsured medical consumers, have given rise to a startling trend of medical refugees. In 2020, more than two million American patients will travel to another country in search of more affordable medical treatment, up nearly tenfold from around 250,000 medical travelers just a decade ago. Patients Beyond Borders has teamed up with Medical Departures (with nearly 100,000 medical tourism bookings to date) revealing that more than 85% of all medical travel is to a handful of safe, popular metropolitan centers around the globe. This is good news for people who think medical travel is only to far-flung, little-known destinations.
AFFORDABLE CARE ACT SPURS MEDICAL TOURISM TO MEXICO American medical tourism to Mexico is as old as traditional tourism, dating back to approximately the 1950s, according to Josef Woodman, CEO of Patients Beyond Borders. The organization estimated that in 2017, 1.4 million Americans engaged in medical tourism, which can be defined as seeking treatment abroad, often involving a leisure element, typically within a four-hour plane ride from home. Pricey procedures tend to drive these trips: dental work, cosmetic surgery, fertility treatments, and bariatric surgery.
Medical Departures Announce 2018 Global Patient Choice Awards Medical Departures, Inc., the global medical tourism company that puts patients in touch with first-class, overseas medical providers, have today announced their annual Global Patients’ Choice Awards for 2018. Top-rated medical specialists that have performed consistently throughout the year and have received the highest accolades possible from their patients will be presented with an award.
Startups Look to Mainstream Medical Tourism Paul McTaggart began to see the possibilities of the medical tourism business while living in Seattle, where he worked for travel booking site Expedia Group Inc. In 2014 he moved his family first to Mexico and then to Bangkok to start Medical Departures International. McTaggart says the site is seeing 40 percent growth annually. It’s profitable, he says, based on its dental and cosmetic surgery business, and he’s moved into heart care; knee, hip, and joint replacements; and cancer treatments. “Health care is opaque and basically an oligopoly,” he says. “It’s the consumer who’s unfortunately the one who has to pay a huge premium for this.”
Chinese women seek fertility treatment overseas Factors pushing them to seek IVF treatment abroad include the relaxation of China's family planning policy, a lack of sufficient fertility options and long waiting lists at treatment centres in China, even as more women decide to start their families later.
More Chinese seek IVF abroad Paul McTaggart, CEO of Bangkok-based healthcare consultancy Medical Departures, told China Daily that "excess demand for IVF treatment, limited clinics available and months in waiting for consultation appointments" are among the factors driving Chinese women to seek programs abroad.
Patients should stop using e-cigarettes before plastic surgery, experts conclude Cigarette smokers are at increased risk of complications after plastic surgery. Could e-cigarette users face a similar risk? Evidence and recommendations related to e-cigarette use by plastic surgery patients are discussed in a special topic paper in the December issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
