Medical Tourism Insurance
There are risks associated with any surgery, and possibly more risk in utilizing a foreign healthcare system or hospital. But the good news is that such risk can be mitigated through the purchase of Medical Tourism Insurance. While GHA is not an insurance company, we still know of a great insurance company that offers affordable, specific insurance that helps the Medical Tourist. Seven Corners is just such a company.
While having insurance does not lower the chances of suffering complications from a medical or dental procedure, having the proper insurance does transfer some of the additional costs onto the insurer, should damages occur. The insurance we suggest is designed specifically for the medical traveler and we believe is the best way to offset financial risk. Consider the purchase of insurance: it will increase the total cost of a medical tour by about 6% or less. Clients should note this small, additional cost will alleviate a lot of stress associated with their travels.
