Baby Boomers Leading Charge for Medical Tourism Trends

A large percent of these baby boomers are currently uninsured. Many who belong to this age group have lost their jobs due to aging, unemployment or downsizing and are no longer covered by affordable health insurance. Traveling beyond local borders offers the opportunity to pursue and receive premium healthcare, alternative treatments and travel, all at the same time.

Boomers are leading the way to more affordable healthcare. Boomers, more than any other age group, are seeking medical care overseas to address such needs as knee and hip replacement surgeries, cardiac care, and alternative treatments for chronic conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, orthopedic procedures, and dental care. The most common afflictions and conditions experienced by boomers today are:

Kidney disease
Arterial sclerosis
Breast, lung, and colon cancer
Joint complaints such as bursitis, arthritis and tendonitis

Baby boomers are combining their retirement desires with ongoing medical care by traveling to various destinations for their needs. American boomers needing dental care and prescriptions often travel south of the border into Mexico or even as far as Brazil, Argentina, and Costa Rica for their needs. Dental procedures in Latin American countries are less than half of what comparable procedures and medications cost in the United States.

Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia are popular destinations for those needing hip or knee replacement surgeries. Europeans are making trips to Hungry and Poland for dental and cosmetic procedures at great savings. Hospitals in South America or Asia generally cost one half of the price charged in the United States and Europe. Cardiac and orthopedic surgeries performed in India can save health travelers nearly $20,000 or more with one surgical procedure.

Thanks for everything, I'm so glad that I spoke to you and found such a wonderful Cancer Treatment. If you need to visit this hospital then feel free here: 1.303.578.0719, info@placidway.com
