Medical Tourism

What To Know

  • Booking Health is ready to help you with every aspect of medical trip and treatment organization, and particularly help you to obtain a medical visa, which is hard to issue for some people.
  • In addition, an important aspect of the choice is the location of the medical center, the main specialization and, of course, the cost of medical services.

Medical tourism is rapidly gaining popularity nowadays. It provides people who require health care services with an excellent possibility to take advantage of advanced technology, reasonable prices, and high-quality medical help provided in the most developed countries.

Why is medical tourism so popular?

Medical tourism implies traveling to countries with exemplary medical standards to receive quality treatment and diagnostic services. Besides, when a person has health problems, seeking medical help abroad is often a necessity, since treatment at home, especially in underdeveloped regions, sometimes does not meet elementary quality standards. The tendency is becoming more popular, largely due to the following factors:

  • Some countries offer loyal price conditions with incomparably high levels of the healthcare, especially when compared to medicine i a patient’s native country
  • Foreign medicine focuses on narrow medical specialties
  • Foreign hospitals have a high number of qualified specialists
  • Foreign hospitals have better equipment and advanced treatment technologies
  • Hospitals provide a high level of comfort and extremely attentive attitude of all medical personnel

Many people have questions about the best countries for treatment. As a rule, it is very hard to make a choice, as absolutely every country has good hospitals that specialize in treating many diseases. In addition, an important aspect of the choice is the location of the medical center, the main specialization and, of course, the cost of medical services.

How to try medical tourism?

It also often happens that the decision about treatment abroad is made rather urgently, when there is no extra time at all. In such cases, it is worth paying attention to the countries located nearby. Citizens of some countries can enter Europe without a visa and fly there for treatment immediately, as soon as tickets are purchased and there’s an agreement with the hospital.

But it’s not the case for other people who need a visa to travel for treatment. The visa regulations vary from country to country, which influences the amount of time you have to wait for medical travel. A special medical visa can be issued for medical tourism. To obtain it, you need to receive an invitation from the hospital and confirm your financial solvency.

However, there’s an option that can free you from taking care of the paperwork. The last decade has demonstrated a dramatic increase in the popularity of medical tourism services that facilitate visiting the world’s leading hospitals in different countries.

How to choose a medical tourism company?

Nowadays, there are quite a few companies that are ready to organize a trip abroad for treatment. They will undertake the selection of a hospital, translating your medical records (if any), ordering tickets, providing an interpreter or other person who will supervise you during treatment at a foreign hospital.

When choosing a medical tourism provider, pay attention to the main focus of the company’s activities. The medical field must be a priority, not an additional service to ordinary tourism. The experience and expertise of the company are equally important.

Before making your final choice, try to get as much information about the company as possible. You can read reviews from real clients, employees, local doctors, etc.

Medical tourism and lockdown

Although the lockdown has changed the lives of many people and racked the health care systems throughout the globe, now it has allowed medical tourism to function. What differs the current situation is the more complex process of visa issuing and also the vaccination requirement or negative COVID test requirement, which varies from country to country.

It is clear that the situation right now is uncertain and very delicate, so it’d be safer and quicker to use the services of a medical tourism provider. Booking Health is ready to help you with every aspect of medical trip and treatment organization, and particularly help you to obtain a medical visa, which is hard to issue for some people.
