Medical Tourism: Affordable Surgery, Same Quality

The newest trend in the medical industry today is Medical Tourism. Americans are saying "good-bye" to over priced surgeons and hospitals, and "hello" to affordable care in Costa Rica.
May 30, 2012 - PRLog -- Today more than ever, people are trying to cut costs. No more name branded cereals, more car-pooling, and everyone is taking a "stay-cation". Some individuals are taking drastic measures such as dropping their health insurance, or downgrading their plans.

So what happens when they are in need of a surgery or medical procedure? In most cases the insurance companies will not upgrade their plan nor will they cover them for a pre-existing condition (ie the reason for re-obtaining health insurance).

Some Americans have started looking abroad for medical care, which is referred to as Medical Tourism. One of the most popular destinations is Costa Rica. Although it's easy to see that Costa Rica has a beautiful landscape and friendly people, it's hard for some people to see and understand that Costa Rica is, in fact, ranked higher than the US in quality of care; according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
