U.S. Healthcare Trump’d by Medical Tourism?
Healthcare reform’s impact looms large. Its effects are far reaching, influencing everything from elections, to how healthcare is delivered – and not just in the United States.
In order to save money, an increasing number of individuals are boarding a plane and flying out of the country for medical care. While this is by no means a new phenomenon, it has seen a spike in popularity in the United States over the past decade as health care costs continue to rise.
However, with talk of changes to America’s healthcare system, many predicted the end of medical tourism… all the way back in 2010 when President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law. Recently, when healthcare reform re-entered the public debate, many once again predicted the end of medical tourism.
To help clear the air and dispel myths surrounding the future of medical travel, we will be hosting a webcast on Wednesday, August 23 at 12 PM EST to highlight what is happening with healthcare reform, and how this could affect the growing industry. Learn how healthcare costs are continuing to rise in the U.S. and more U.S. employers are implementing domestic and international medical tourism. Learn what changes, if any, President Trump could have on medical tourism in the U.S. and what opportunities this provides to the medical tourism marketplace.
