Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 1, 2006
Today, two American companies, MedRetreat and Cinergy Health, have announced plans to launch a combined effort offering North American consumers overseas medical tourism programs. MedRetreat and Cinergy have agreed that this new cooperative effort will help the vast majority of uninsured and underinsured Americans receive high quality healthcare abroad at a 50 percent - 80 percent savings from here in the U.S.
"We're excited to have the opportunity to assist Cinergy Health members to receive healthcare abroad," says Patrick Marsek, Managing Director of MedRetreat. "Over the past several months, we have been providing Cinergy with the necessary information to understand our proven medical tourism model. They've agreed that our experience and expertise is a very safe and viable opportunity for their members to receive quality healthcare at affordable prices outside of the U.S."
Steve Trattner, Chief Marketing Officer of Cinergy Health, remarks, "As MedRetreat has been offering medical tourism services for three years now, we believe they are best positioned to facilitate our members in a safe and affordable fashion. The success of our affiliation is imminent. In combination with our discounted healthcare opportunities here in the U.S., MedRetreat can provide excellent healthcare facilitation services within their competent network of hospitals and physicians abroad. This combined service allows our members to stay in the U.S. for lower cost healthcare issues, and travel abroad for higher priced surgeries. It's a winning combination for the American healthcare consumer."
Being the first affiliation of this type in the U.S., Cinergy and MedRetreat will pave the way for future types of medical savings programs offered off shore.
Cinergy Health, Inc. is a nationwide provider of non-insurance, health care savings programs offering discounted fees with hospitals, physicians, prescription drugs and specialty medical services in the U.S.
MedRetreat is the leading American owned and operated medical tourism service agency offering healthcare savings programs in seven countries around the world through affiliations with state-of-the-art medical facilities and board certified doctors.
