PRLog - Jun. 21, 2012 - San Jose, Costa Rica, June 21, 2012:

The medical travel market is becoming highly competitive, and potential patients are increasingly looking for a combination of top quality services and affordability. With this in mind, Medical Tours Costa Rica has widened its network of service providers in order to meet the demand for quality and affordability.

It is no secret that prices in the United States are constantly on the rise, and that many people simply cannot get treatment because they cannot afford it. In addition, there are people who are under-insured, and their deductible is actually higher than what they would have to pay for the entire treatment process if they were to travel abroad.

There are also millions of Americans who still have no insurance, and this adds to the list of people who cannot pay for treatment. There are also many Americans who are insured, but their insurance company will not pay for treatment they consider elective or experimental.

Therefore, there is a great need for quality treatment that is affordable to the countless millions who cannot pay for treatment in the United States.

However, it is not only people from the United States who are looking for quality, affordable healthcare options. People from countries that offer universal coverage are also traveling abroad for treatment in increasing numbers.

The chief reasons why these people travel are the long waiting lines to see the doctor, and the long waiting times for treatment.

World class care:

The three major private hospitals in Costa Rica are accredited by the Joint Commission International. This ensures care and treatment that either meet or exceed internationally accepted standards.

Pricing options:

Medical Tours Costa Rica has come up with the following pricing options for people who have no insurance, are under insured, or whose insurance company will not cover the procedure.

Are you looking for all on 4 dental implants?

The cost of an upper or lower mouth restoration in Costa Rica is:

All on 4 – four implants (*two-stage process): $ 7,800
All on 6 – six implants (**immediate load):      $10,700
All on 8 – eight implants (immediate load):      $13,900

*Requires two trips to Costa Rica several months apart – All on 4 is not recommended for immediate load since there is a 25% to 50% chance of dental implant failure
**Requires one trip to Costa Rica

(People have been charged $60,000+ in the US for an upper OR lower mouth restoration)

Please note that you could need additional work such as a nasal lift and/or bone grafting:

Nasal lift $1,000 per area
Bone graft $650 per area

Have you been putting off getting a hernia operation?

A typical hernia operation is Costa Rica is $5,600 to $10,000. Prices in the United States are $10,000 to $20,000 on average, depending on the kind of hernia surgery you need.

Do you need a single or double knee replacement but your deductible is too high?

Single knee replacement surgery in Costa Rica is approximately $14,000, and a double knee replacement is approximately $25,000. In the United States, double knee replacement surgery is often over $100,000, which makes the deductible higher than the price you would have to pay in Costa Rica, depending on the type of insurance coverage you have. Single knee replacement surgery in the United States ranges from $40,000 to $75,000.

CCSVI:

The CCSVI or MS liberation therapy program in Costa Rica is the most complete you will find in the region. It includes an internist, a neurologist and a vascular surgeon.

In other places around the world offering CSSVI or MS liberation therapy, the procedure is done by a radiologist.

Costa Rica has a very detailed treatment protocol which not only takes the vascular aspect into account, but the entire health of the patient and the benefits the patient will get from the entire treatment.

Stents are not used, all of the veins are checked, and a hospital surgery room especially designed for this type of procedure is used.

To this date, over 600 patients have been treated with an unparalleled success rate.

About the company:

Medical Tours Costa Rica is the premier medical tourism facilitation service in Costa Rica. Unlike other facilitation services, the company has a physical presence in the three major private hospitals in Costa Rica.
