Why Is Medical Tourism So Cost Effective?
Medical Tourism in Mexico is so cost effective here than most places because of the proximity and affordability. The United States has the highest rates of malpractice and law sues against physicians, than other countries. Malpractice insurance usually isn’t as high as it is in the U.S. This is not to say that the safety and quality of medical treatments are inferior. It’s just that hospitals and medical centers can afford to lower their prices since they themselves don’t have to pay as much to their insurance companies. This also means that you won’t necessarily receive large balloon payments if you sue a hospital and win in the event of a botched surgery. All of Quality Care´s Surgeons, doctors and physicians have practice with government run hospitals for years, before they have their own private practices. In Mexico they have what they call I.M.S.S which translates to Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social. They see thousands of patients with different medical cases on daily basis, making them excellent experienced doctors.
