What is medical tourism?
Medical Tourism (also known as health tourism or medical travel) is a term to describe the trend where people travel from one part of the world to another to obtain medical, dental, and surgical care.
Is medical tourism safe?
This is the first, and probably the most important question that comes to mind when talking about medical tourism.
Any medical surgery or procedure, no matter where it’s carried out, entails some risk. In order to reduce this risk, we work hard to research and provide our clients with information on various options for high quality medical facilities.
What patients are most likely to use the medical tourism?
Patients most likely to use medical tourism are those whose medical insurance do not cover an expensive procedure at home, or the co pay is very high, or the medical procedure is not available at home. Another case is where there is a long queue for getting the medical help in their home country.
How much do I save?
Savings can be from 40-70%, depending on the procedure.
Isn’t it expensive to travel to another country for treatment?
Compared to the savings in the medical costs, travel cost is usually negligible.
Can I know the doctors’ credentials?
Yes, we provide you with the doctor’s professional credentials upon request.
What about quality?
We offer you the highest quality service by using only modern, high-quality materials, products of the leading implant manufacturing companies and working with internationally acclaimed surgeons and doctors.
What are the risks?
There is an inherent risk in every medical procedure. Our focus is to minimize the risks involved by working only with certified medical professionals who deliver high quality of care.
What if something goes wrong?
The medical centers we deal with have invested a lot of money and would not like to have the adverse affect of any negative publicity affecting their business. At the same time any surgery or medical procedure entails risk but they take great care to make sure that the patient is satisfied and the results are successful.
Is medical tourism right for me?
Ultimately, it’s a personal decision.
Do I need to tell my doctor?
You are not required to tell your doctor at home. However, we recommend that you discuss your thoughts about having a medical procedure abroad with your general practitioner. We can facilitate correspondence between your doctor and the relevant physician at one of our partner facilities, if you wish.
Where are you located?
We are based in Budapest, Hungary. Easily reachable with a 2-hour plane ride from anywhere in Europe.
I don’t know anything about my destination country. Will I be safe? How will I get around?
You will not be left alone without help anywhere you decide to go, unless you choose to. Before your trip, you will be briefed on what to expect. If you wish to see Budapest and visit the clinic before your decision check out our First visit packages.
Do the doctors and the medical staff speak English?
Yes, in most cases the doctors speak English and/or German. If not, someone in their staff is competent in English and helps bridge any communication gap.
Who will be dealing with details of my case during my trip?
Each patient is assigned to a case-manager who will take care of all details relating to their visit and successful return and recovery.
Where do I stay?
This is, again, where we come to your assistance. As an individual, not only finding the right medical center, but also the right accommodation that meets your and your companion’s comfort could be disquieting. Before you leave for your trip, we work with you to make sure you are booked in an accommodation of your choice and liking.
Can I have more than one medical procedure at the same time?
Yes, it may be possible. However this will depend on the doctor’s assessment of your case. This may be more cost beneficial.
What happens if I need follow-up?
Follow-up, if needed, can be done by a doctor of your liking in your home country. We suggest that any follow-up, if needed, be arranged prior to your trip abroad.
What if I can’t find the procedure I’m interested in on your website?
It is very possible that the procedure you are looking for is not listed on our website, but there is a good chance we cover it. Send us a query on what you are looking for and we can provide you with the information you need if available.
