Medical Tourism

Medical Tourism

Medical care in the U.S. for seniors appears to be in jeopardy and soon not even available at all for ages 75 and above. Even now, qualification for Medicare for any age may be means-tested. I believe that it may become illegal in the U.S. to hire private physician care outside of Medicare.

Medical care in the U.S. was already collapsing fast, and now Obamacare seems certain to absolutely destroy what’s left. Therefore, this might be the time to educate yourself on medical tourism, especially if you are 75 or older.

Medical care in foreign countries appears to be better in many places than in the U.S. with much lower cost. Of course, I am fully aware that U.S. citizens are addicted to “free” medical care after retirement age. But “free” medical care in the U.S. is not that good.

To begin your search, go to Google and type in “medical tourism.” There is a lot of information available. Already, more than 1 million U.S. citizens are medical tourists.

I have spent some time reading about medical tourism in Thailand, which appears to be one of the preferred destinations for medical treatment for many Americans. Of course, there are many countries that are very receptive to medical tourism. The cost is considerably less than in the U.S. — many times, less than 50 percent.

There will most of the time be no wait. Surgeons are among the best in the world, adhering to international standards with first-class facilities.

There is a wide range of treatments available with private recovery if you desire. I have learned that the medical tourist establishments are eager to correspond with great confidentiality and offer low-cost, longer patient stays for recovery.

Contact around the world in our day with email and Vonage phone service is affordable to everyone. Vonage phone service is very good and getting better, costing a minimum of about $30 a month for calls worldwide.

Those of you who have gold and silver coins, they are good money anywhere in the world. And after the next run-up rally, these coins will be very valuable compared to paper money.
