Description

Medical Tourism is one of the fastest growing healthcare industries. The world is in a healthcare crisis and patients are starting to travel overseas in search of the best quality and the most affordable medical care.

Last years 1st annual congress featured over 850 attendees from over 45 countries and over 53 exhibitors and sponsors. The 2nd Annual World Medical Tourism & Global Health Congress will feature over 2,000 attendees from over 50 countries and over 90 exhibitors and sponsors. While last year’s congress featured over 3,000 one-on-one private networking sessions, the second annual congress should have at least 5,000 one-on-one private networking meetings.

The purpose of this congress is for Employers, Self Funded Health Plans, Insurance Companies and Facilitators looking to outsource healthcare overseas to network with top International Hospitals and medical tourism companies in one place for the ultimate networking event. Last year’s congress there were over 100 insurance companies and insurance providers, and over 400 hospitals, clinics and governments.

Attending the event last year were insurance companies from US, United Kingdom, Europe, Middle East, Asia and Latin America. This years congress will also see “buyers” of healthcare from countries such as Russia, China, Japan and Africa. Many of these countries are emerging markets as more patients travel to and from these countries for medical care.

As the healthcare crisis gets worse in many of these countries more and more health insurance companies, employers, Claims payors and health insurance agents are looking at medical tourism as the creative solution to reduce healthcare costs while maintaining a very high level of quality of care.

In the United States for example, US Employers and Insurance Carriers are seeing cost savings of up to 90% off of the cost of their healthcare expenses by implementing medical tourism. A heart procedure that may cost $100,000 + in the US may only cost as little as $10,000 overseas. A recent report on medical tourism stated that by 2017 over 16 million Americans could be traveling overseas for medical care.

Employers and insurance companies in the US, Canada and the European Union are now starting to look at the potential to "outsource their healthcare" and send millions of patients overseas to international hospitals specializing in Medical Tourism.

Medical Tourism offers Employers and Insurance Companies the opportunity to create financial incentives for employees and plan participants for obtaining medical procedures overseas, while at the same time offering employees equal to or in some cases higher care than they could receive in their home country.
