Medical tourism's popularity by Americans is sound evidence that when one door closes another opens as a reaction. This industry has intensified and dramatically evolved thanks to President Obama.
Now that I am in Thailand, opportunity's door has opened and I am now thankful for the unintended consequence Obamacare created. I am in the process of opening an office in Thailand in order to take advantage of the demand for quality medical, dental and vision procedures that are performed in countries such as India, Singapore, China and Thailand at a fraction of the cost.
There are many American practitioners in these countries who have decided they can practice medicine and treat their patients better outside the constrictions of the tyrannical government control they experience in America.
Fortunately, HSAs (POP Health Savings Accounts) that Americans have embraced are utilized to perform surgeries outside the U.S. at a fraction of the cost. The quality of care is even better in many situations. Various organizations, such as International Society for Quality in Health-Care-accredited organizations, are in the process of developing standards the public can rely on.
I encourage everyone to educate themselves about alternate possibilities. You can attend various medical tourism conventions listed at www.imtj.com.
The sixth annual World Medical Tourism and Global Healthcare Congress will be held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas from Nov. 2 through 6.
I also recommend Patients Beyond Borders as an outstanding resource for investigating quality international medical and dental care at affordable prices, at www.facebook.com/patientsbeyondborders.
