In response to a question about the net savings resulting from an employer sending employees abroad for treatment, Mr. Edelheit says, "An employer can see savings up to 80%, which is amazing. Reductions in employers expenses vary based upon demographics, age, gender, location, industry, etc. In reality an employer if fully implemented could see savings ranging from 10% - 50% of their health plan. And that means reduced to no rate increases in future years. Employers can actually take control of their health care costs for the first time.
