QUERIES ON MEDICAL EXPENSES

Why is overseas treatment so affordable?

The cost of healthcare in developing countries has no relation to the quality provided. Low cost, high-quality healthcare is only a result of the kind of health care structure that is built up in those countries, jointly by the government and the existing healthcare providers. Certain government policies also contribute towards making healthcare affordable in these countries. Competition among health care providers is also high in these countries, leading to a quality treatment being offered at a low price.

Won't travel expenses cut into my savings?

The cost of travel to developing countries from developed countries is not a huge expense, as travel rates to such countries are quite cheap. Travel-related costs consume a very minute percentage of your savings, and you won't regret spending an optimal amount for treatment overseas compared to the exorbitant amounts that you may have to spend in your home country, which can also affect your budget.

What about unexpected expenses during the trip?

Unexpected expenses are not a must; they can be avoided with proper planning. Once you associate yourself with Medi Bridge India, our consultants facilitate detailed discussions with your chosen health care provider and preferred physician and help in planning out your finances from the very start to the end.

But they can be managed well, within your budget, with the help of Medi Bridge India.

QUERIES ON QUALITY OF HEALTHCARE

How is the quality of healthcare in India?

India offers nothing but the best in quality healthcare. With several international hospital chains and JCI accredited hospitals in India, the services and facilities offered are of the best in the world. The physicians and caregivers are mostly from western medical universities, with years of experience in providing treatment. Besides this fact, Medi Bridge India also ensures that each and every patient gets treatment from the best and the most efficient health care-givers, depending on the ailment and treatment that is required.

There is a general opinion among many that India is a poor country with several people below the poverty line, living in poor hygienic conditions. Would it be safe to opt for medical treatment in such a country?

India, just like any other nation that achieved its independence in the last century, has its own set of problems in ensuring the same good quality and high standard of living to all its citizens. But in spite of being a third world country with the second highest population figure in the world, India is also one of the world's fastest emerging economies with a rapid growth rate, which is reflected in its GDP. With liberalization policies allowing foreign countries to invest in it, India has successfully developed its tertiary sector, that is, services, and has managed to build up a very strong base as far as the medical/ healthcare sector is concerned. Foreign direct investment and governmental policies have also ensured that only the best facilities and qualified medical practitioners be allowed to cater to the needs of medical tourists. Hence, there is no need to fear when choosing India as a destination for medical treatment.

The required arrangements can be made for the traveling companion as well. A different visa will be needed for the friend/family member, which can be arranged easily.

What about follow-up treatment once I return to my country after the treatment?

Follow up treatment is generally provided as a part of the medical tourism package, often combined with the period that the person spends in recovery in India itself.
