Medical Tourism: Patients Beyond Borders
March 22, 2016
Can you say location, location, location?
More people are heading abroad for surgery in order to save money. But there is so much for you to consider before doing so. Can you say location, location, location? Francisco Bonet of the Puerto Rico Medical Tourism Corporation, and orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Yamil Rivera, join us with some insight to help you decide. How high are health standards in other countries? Will there be a communication barrier? How about the exchange of money? You don’t have to fret over those issues on the All-Star Island. Puerto Rico is part of the United States and it abides by the same healthcare standards. Hospitals, doctors and all healthcare practices are regulated by the same boards and organizations as those in the States. Another plus: An American citizen does not need a passport or visa to travel to Puerto Rico, making it very easy and accessible.
