The Benifits of Medical Treatment in the Philippines;
Price Differential – the huge cost differences that exist for the same treatments performed to the same internationally recognized standards in various parts of the world. The cost savings, typically 60 to 80 per cent, are so great that one could simultaneously build in a once-in-a-lifetime vacation in the locale to recuperate from an elected procedure (complete with post-procedure professional care) and still save money.
Speed & Convenience – in many Western countries waiting lists are the norm and up to two years is not uncommon for non-emergency procedures. By contrast, it is perfectly feasible that a medical tourist can step off the plane and undergo an operation the following day.
Insurance Limitations – either insurance does not cover orthopedic surgery (such as knee/hip replacement) or imposes unreasonable restrictions on the choice of the facility, surgeon, or prosthetics to be used.
Unavailable Treatments – many accepted, advanced or traditional treatments are offered in some locations that are not available back home. For example, cutting-edge stem cell rejuvenation and bone resurfacing to a plethora of complimentary, herbal and natural therapies.
Privacy & Confidentiality – gender reassignment, cosmetic procedures, drug and alcohol rehabilitation and weight loss treatments are some of the reasons patients might want discretion.
