Promoting Medical Tourism In India

Medical tourism focuses on treatment of acute illness, elective surgeries such as cardiology and cancer, among others. From October this year , the Government plans to start overseas marketing of India as a medical tourism destination. // Senior Government officials say that the formalities for marketing medical facilities to a global audience have already started and they hope to complete the process of price-banding of hospitals in various cities by the third quarter of this year.

The estimated cost for a heart surgery in the U.S is $30,000 , however the same could be performed India for about $6,000. Similarly, a bone marrow transplant could cost about $2,50,000 in the US while it could be done here for about $26,000.

Foreigners have already started trickling into India for medical treatment thus officials are hopeful that this will become a flood once the various initiatives being taken by the Government take off.
