Medical Tourism is the globalization phenomenon where people who live in one country travel to another country to receive medical, dental, and/or surgical care.
Medical travelers often engage in medical tourism to save money, but this does not mean they are sacrificing quality for savings. Medical tourists typically receive equal or greater care than they would have in their own country, and are traveling for medical care because of affordability, or better access to a higher or more specialized quality of care. “Domestic Medical Tourism” is a subsection of medical tourism where patients do not leave their country, but travel to another city, region, or state to receive medical care.
The goal of a Medical Tourism Familiarization Tour is to highlight the quality of care within the specific region.
A Medical Tourism Facilitator is an independent company that helps coordinate a patient's trip to another country for medical care.
