Posted on November 25, 2008. Filed under: Net Spy | Tags: , , |

U.S. health care system is no doubt the best in the world. Safety, quality and professionalism are its best assets but since it runs primarily on private health insurance, how will patients from middle class families afford medical care in the United States? American citizens without insurance and or partial insurance are in great threat. We may not be aware but traces of deaths due to delays in treatment or lack of treatment are everywhere.

Due to high health insurance rates, plastic surgery costs and extra long waiting times for treatments, patients coming from Canada, U.S. and Europe are practicing medical tourism where affordable plastic surgery and medical care can be obtained at a fraction of dollar. Third world countries like India have taken much of the credit. Thanks to the overwhelming plastic surgery cost in America, plastic surgery in India has now become an essential option for patients seeking affordable plastic surgery and other medical procedures. Statistics show that the medical tourism industry in India is worth $333 million (Rs 1,450 crore) while a study by CII-McKinsey estimates that the country could earn Rs 5,000-10,000 crore by 2012. The potential of plastic surgery in India is enormous, major corporates such as the Tatas, Fortis, Max, Wockhardt, Piramal, and the Escorts group throw in big chunks of investments to establish modern hospitals in the major cities of India.

Cost Efficient, warm and passionate surgeons and crews, and the quality of plastic surgery in India is very competent. These are some of the most attractive features of India that resulted more foreign patients visiting the country for affordable plastic surgery. Not just cost savings or the high standard of medical care facility, but also the waiting time is much lower for any treatment in India than in any other country. A recent report revealed that India will become the first country to be officially brought into the medical network of Serigraph Inc., a West Bend, Wis., manufacturer in the United States. Since plastic surgery in India has the highest potential in terms of plastic surgery cost and high quality medical care, the company is willing to be the first U.S. company to embrace medical tourism for the benefit of its employees. The company promised to pay all related expenses including travel and lodging. People under Serigraph Inc. doesn’t have to pay deductibles or the hospital copay.

Its clear to see what medical tourism in India can offer. Its just a matter of time until this country will become the central hub for medical tourism and cost effective solution for excellent health care.
