Economic Turmoil Creates Boom for Medical Tourism
Date:4/3/2009

2008, insurance products were introduced to provide liability protection for employers. Commercial interest in medical tourism has been percolating from coast to coast ever since, and is unlikely to abate until Congress enacts stem-to-stern health care reform.

Hoeberechts reports that one of the first medical tourism questions employers ask is around quality. "As long as a company partners with a reputable facilitator, employees will gain access to doctors at the top of their field worldwide and be able to select a facility that has achieved a world-recognized standard of excellence," he said. "All our patients have been impressed with how much state-of-the-art technology these facilities deploy for high quality diagnosis, treatment and administration, and the high ratio of staff to patient."

To further ensure quality, Hoeberechts' own company performs multi-day on-site visits with each medical facility -- including in-depth interviews with the key surgeons and top administrators -- before admitting them into his tightly controlled network of providers. "I'd be out of business in a flash if I couldn't assure that the care my patients receive is on par with or better than the care they'd receive at the top U.S. facilities," he said. "Quality care is the top focus of everyone on my staff, and with each of my providers. Quality is never sacrificed to achieve higher savings."
