Midday Maryland - Medical Tourism

The rising costs of healthcare are causing some US citizens to travel to other countries for medical procedures. Top destinations include India, Mexico, Costa Rica, and more. While the savings for these procedures can be considerable, patients should understand the risks involved as well.

Language and communication barriers can increase the possibility of miscommunication, misunderstandings, and errors. Some countries may offer counterfeit medications, which leads to complications. Flying after a procedure can also be a medical risk.

If you are considering a trip abroad for a medical procedure, do your research. Check accreditations, speak with the doctor doing the procedure, and get the okay for travel.
