COVID 19 and the Disruption of Self Funded Employers' Healthcare

COVID-19 has disrupted employees' access to surgeries and has had many employees postponing critical care, creating pent-up demand for major surgeries while employees wait for the pandemic to lessen. The challenge for most employers is how to finance the pent-up demand for surgery while, at the same time, cutting healthcare costs, as organizations make cutbacks on budgets across-the-board as a result of the economic impact of the pandemic on their bottom line.

Medical Tourism provides an attractive option for US employers to save between 50% to 80% on the cost of surgeries. Learn from one of the most innovative employers, who has sent over 1,000+ employees abroad for surgery, why medical travel is a benefit all employers should leverage. Let them dispel the myths surrounding medical travel and why employees prefer to get treatment abroad rather than locally.
