How Health Tourism in India is Saving Hugely for Americans

Oct 12th 2015 at 12:43 AM

Health tourism has become a common option now for many people across the world and especially in the United States where the costs of medical services are at a high. There are many patients who are also under-covered by their insurance policies or hate waiting in long queues to be treated. Even those with complete coverage also prefer to go for health tourism in other countries where the costs of medical treatments and procedures are low.

This picking trend has led many Americans to save huge money spent on expensive surgeries, as well as receive high-quality treatment in excellent medical facilities abroad. One of their preferred choices is to undergo health tourism in India where medical and aftercare services cost marginally lower than their cost in America. Some of the major procedures that are performed in India are up to 70 percent cheaper than what they would cost in the United States.

In addition, there are elective surgeries that can be cumbersome for certain patients. For this reason, many Americans are not even provided an insurance cover for such surgeries. Thus, they take up health tourism in India as an option to save their precious time, money and life. However, treatment in India is not performed by compromising on the standards of healthcare. There are efficient medical facilities with renowned specialists and super-specialists to handle even the elective procedures.

Doctors and surgeons treating health tourists ensure not to keep them waiting for long before they are precisely diagnosed and treated for their specific problems. In fact, they are well trained to maintain the international levels of healthcare while delivering treatment services to their patients. There are also efficient agencies in India that have been taking care of the travel, stay and medical care needs of health tourists. This also includes thousands of Americans who visit India every year in order to receive proper diagnosis and treatment.


While American medical tourists have been saving hugely from their expenses on surgeries and procedures, they are also gaining the cost benefits in terms of their travel and stay. Thus, they not only receive a chance to visit India, but also recover their health during the process. Whether it is about taking up cosmetic and dental procedures or complex medical procedures for serious diseases, Americans can definitely find it convenient to take up health tourism in India and receive treatment within their budget.
