Medical tourism or health tourism is the act of traveling outside their area of residence for health care. Also known as medical travel or health trip. It means flying halfway around the globe, to an exotic culture that patient does not know anything about and will receive medical care at the same time.
Ideal for people without insurance, those needing medical procedures that insurance won’t cover or those needing therapeutic processes that can not afford local prices. Medical tourism offers an attractive and accessible alternative to rising healthcare costs.
