A guide for Americans seeking affordable medical treatment abroad
Los Angeles Times, November 3, 2008
Last year, 750,000 Americans traveled abroad for care, according to estimates by the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, a Washington-based research center. Other analysts say the numbers are lower, but hardly anyone disputes that medical care, once a highly local business, is going global like never before. By 2010, Deloitte projects, 6 million consumers a year will venture outside the United States for medical treatment. Proponents say it's a logical outgrowth of the globalization that's reshaping the industry.
