Traveling for care—in the U.S.
In a new twist on medical tourism, U.S. employers are encouraging workers to travel for medical care, but domestically. Some employers are looking to take advantage of geographical variations in the quality and cost of healthcare within the United States. But others are leveraging deals they've struck with foreign hospitals in order to secure better rates with U.S. hospitals that are eager to keep American patients here. Most of the activity is focused on surgical procedures.
