Secondly, being Irish I am a naturally curious and chatty person. Waiting time is converted into an opportunity to mix with visiting US and Canadian patients and to further my research as to how patients choose their providers.
How did you choose this particular dentist? 'My husband and I spent hours researching on internet websites and blogs and decided on this one'. Whilst another waiting companion responded 'This is my second visit, as I was so happy with my visit the first time'
How did you come to be at this particular cosmetic surgeon? 'Well its my first time for any of this stuff so I just sent emails to clinics in the US and Costa Rica and this was the only one who answered and seemed good'
How many times have you stayed at this recovery center? 'This is my fourth visit and I will be back!'
Through sheer determination and research online these medical tourists had thankfully arrived in the waiting rooms of some of the many quality providers in Costa Rica.
With 50 million people either uninsured or underinsured in the US and 80 million Baby Boomers in the US, there are potentially a lot of people looking outside of the US alone for their medical care. When you also consider Canada with its long wait lines (up to 5 years for Bariatric surgery and 2 years for Orthopedic surgery) and the Canadians willing to travel for dental and cosmetic procedures, the audience increases substantially.
A recent survey by the Medical Tourism Association showed that 56 percent of medical tourism patients will independently research their medical trip online, 10 percent will use Hospital's International Patient departments and the remaining 34 percent will use Medical Tour Agents.
So that means there are a lot of people using online sources to plan their medical trip away from home.
It's a myth that people travel just because treatment is cheaper than in their own country. People travel to get the same quality or better quality treatment outside of their own country and for a better price.
In Costa Rica, yes there are savings of up to 70 percent compared to their US equivalents. However in Costa Rica there are also 2 JCI accredited hospitals, 21 American accredited surgery facilities and 5 American accredited ambulatory health care facilities, so quality and standards are high.
When choosing to travel to another country for medical care, you don't always feel reassured by the 'state of the art surgery' nor want to rely on the Medical Tour Agents invitation-' fill this box and we'll get back to you'
Sometimes you just want to know how many years the provider has been in practice, whether their clinic/hospital has a US or internationally recognized accreditation, where they studied, whether they speak English and what hotels, recovery centers and airports they are near to. Finally you probably want to see their website and see some customer comments from international patients like yourself. All of this will help form your own opinion. Then you may want to consider a tour within Costa Rica before or after your treatment, medical travel insurance, an interpreter or nursing care for your stay.
Wouldn't it be amazing if you could get all this information from one reliable source? With one click of a Direct Quote button you could send your inquiry to the provider, knowing they will respond because someone based in Costa Rica and on your side is urging them to do so?
